What to expect
The Avalon area covers a large area south of the UCF campus. While it is primarily a residential area, with many housing developments and schools, there are also several apartment complexes for students to browse. A relatively newer part of town, the Avalon area is nice to drive through which is good considering the distance from UCF. Avalon Park is a new downtown area with interesting shops. It’s a nice place to take a stroll through.
Expect to find a few apartment complexes that aren’t your typical student housing complex. Some apartments have good deals for the amount of floor space you’ll get. There are a few newer developments in the area, too.
