City of Altamonte Springs, Florida

The heart of Seminole County is the suburban city of Altamonte Springs. The name Altamonte is Spanish for “high hill” but was originally spelled without the “e”. This city has an extremely active parks and recreation department, and hosts the state’s largest Independence Day celebration. As the city grows, the Uptown Altamonte area grows. Cranes Roost at Uptown Altamonte features a water fountain choreographed to classical, swing and contemporary music.
