What do you like about Orlando? A real city close to the beach
What do you dislike about Orlando? Not much interesting stuff to do. There's a lot of entertainment, but it's all just really a bunch of clubs, bars, tourist attractions and chain restaurants (which are fun for visitors or people in school, but get old when you live there 24/7)
What are your favorite parts of the city to live and/or hang out in? As far away from I drive as possible! There are nice local places, but you have to look really hard.
How expensive is it? Rent is pretty high, other than that it's not that bad.
Is it safe? It's not so bad for a city this size.
How is the weather? It's pretty decent except for may-september
Additional thoughts? It's cool place to live for a while, but there's not really any good jobs, and it's mostly tourists, transient theme park workers, and college students (which makes the local scene kind of suck). Also disney and universal have a way of killing anything cool in the city that they can't make money off of. It's kind of funny if you can laugh at it, but I wouldn't want to have a family here.

What do you like about Orlando?
The weather is great and the taxes are low. The suburbs are safe. The beach is an hour away. There's lots to do. Great place to raise a family.

What do you dislike about Orlando?
Traffic on I-4


What are your favorite parts of the city to live and/or hang out in?
Econ State Forest, UCF, attractions, beach.

How expensive is it?
Reasonable

Is it safe?
Yes, except for Paramore and Pine Hills area.

How is the weather?
Awesome.


Additional thoughts?
Great for sports: golf, baseball, football, beach sports, water sports, etc. Close to the beach but insulated from Hurricane storm surge.


How's the attitude?
If you move here from up north, you'll notice the attitude around the area is much more optimiistic. There is growth here, taxes are low, and everybody is generally happier. There is not as much pressure to take everything seriously like in DC or NYC or the entire northeast US.

Travel?
The airport is easy to get to and user-friendly.
