We have several master planned communities here, Eagle Creek, Lake Nona, ...Also there are several towns around Orlando that might be nice to consider such as Heathrow which has the master community. Below is the link to some homes in these areas:
You really would not have any issues finding great restaurants and shopping nearby. We have 60 million visitors that we cater to every year so the services are outstanding.
Picking among the two, I would say, is really a personal preference, Orlando is centrally located and Disney, Sea World, Epcot, Universal and most other theme Parks are gathered up here We have international Drive with great restaurants,... We do not however have the beach that Tampa has. So its more of what you are in to.
Hope this helps and please let me know if you have any questions or would like to know more about our mater planned communities here in Orlando.
