Downtown Sanford FL

230 E 1st Street
Sanford, FL 32771 United States

Sanford is more than just a city rich in history. Sanford is a place where everyone feels like they belong and the spirit of southern hospitality is experienced on every street corner. Take the time to stroll the residential streets that are lined with beautiful city parks and hundreds of turn of the century homes, adorned with hundred year old oaks that whisper the secrets of the past.

Our history dates back to the early 1800?s when Sanford was once a hub for commerce on the St. John’s River. The city sits on the south shore of Lake Monroe at the head of navigation on the St. John’s River, a 9,406 acre lake and offers beautiful lake views.  Sanford’s Riverwalk is a perfect place to take an afternoon stroll and lends a picturesque place to watch the sun set over Lake Monroe.

First Street is the center of the historic downtown. Historic buildings,  revitalized brick streets and period appropriate light posts are a few of the things that will transport your spirit back in time. The Victorian-era cottages that adorn the surrounding residential area are lovingly restored and framed with gingerbread trim and picket fences.  We invite you to our wonderful city to savor our history and pride in our past. Make Sanford your next destination in Central Florida!  Visit the Historic Sanford Welcome Center, the hub for information on Sanford Florida businesses, arts and events.
