Top Area Picks
Apopka offers an excellent selection of local favorites. Enjoy prime rib at The Back Room Steakhouse, the freshest catch at Catfish Place, casual Italian at Caffe Positano, delicious BBQ at Porkie's Original BBQ, or sushi at Hatsuhana Japanese Restaurant.
In an area so well known for nature parks, it's no surprise that some of the most popular shops cater to the outdoors. Shops such as Mosquito Creek Outdoors and Spin City Cycles will have what you need to enjoy all the area has to offer.

Apopka, once a rural farming community was at the center of the housing boom during 2004 and 2005 with dozens of new home communities spurring growth for new schools and business development. From mini horse farms to the newest golf communities, Apopka has a wide variety of housing options available. Though the once open spaces are giving way to more and more housing developments, the ability to purchase acreage and "get away from it all" still exists. And ranked as one of "America's Friendliest Towns" in 2012 by Forbes, living here means neighbors still get together for charity golf tournaments, fundraisers, and Super Bowl parties.
