DOCTOR P. PHILLIPS COMMUNITY PARK


With its stellar restaurants, primo shopping and world-class recreation, it’s no wonder Dr. Phillips is considered one of the most desirable neighborhoods to live in for the upwardly mobile and über-wealthy. It’s where many of the city’s movers and shakers indulge in their fair share of R&R and, with the exclusive communities of Isleworth, Windermere and Bay Hill nearby, where many call home. It’s not uncommon to find Tiger Woods dining with buddies at a booth inside one of the higher-end boîtes on West Sand Lake Road (of which there are quite a few); for the less prosperous, Dr. Phillips will always serve as a place to cave into bourgeois tendencies. The neighborhood’s proximity to International Drive’s hotels, resorts and timeshares equates to a steady influx of tourists, most looking for a decent meal away from the parks. Unfortunately, that also means frustrating levels of traffic on West Sand Lake Road, particularly for those just looking to pop into Whole Foods for a quick grocery run.
