What do you like about Orlando? I liked the fact that Orlando has a progessive track. It always looks to grow.
What do you dislike about Orlando? The city lacked personality. That's probably due to the fact that Disney runs the city.
What are your favorite parts of the city to live and/or hang out in? Downtown was nice. I enjoyed Lake Eola.
How expensive is it? Orlando was kind of expensive. If you take into account the home prices, rental rates, and TOLL ROADS. You can spend about $60.00 a month easy on tolls if you depend on them to get around town on a daily basis.
Is it safe? People can complain about the hispanics taking over but that's not the case. Orlando is a developing city and with that comes crime. There were a lot of home invasions when I was living up there.
How is the weather? Hot and humid. NO OCEAN BREEZE. That's the bad thing about land-locked cities in Florida.
Additional thoughts? I left Orlando for Miami for a job opportunity. I would consider moving back one day. It's a nice place to raise a family.

What do you like about Orlando?Very little. Buildings are open late because of tourism, so that makes things a little more convenient
What do you dislike about Orlando? Almost everything. Traffic is terrible, and the people on the road are push, aggressive, and violent. I've lived in different parts of Orlando, and in my opinion every area seems covered with poverty, garbage, and homeless. I would never in a million years consider running/jogging at night. Many people speak spanish, and simply neglect to learn english. Expect many of the employees at grocery stores and Walmarts speak no english. Most of the stores around their consist of fast foods, big commercial restaurants, cell phone stores, used car lots, dollar stores, and cash advance buildings. I used to live in St. Petersburg, FL where you could actually find some unique, family owned restaurants and buildings. St. Petersburg also set a large space aside for museums and parks.... This is what I miss most. The people are also inconsiderate and very rude. The local news usually consists of stabbings and shootings, as well as an occasional drive-by. Don't expect the city to host free events or activities either.
What are your favorite parts of the city to live and/or hang out in? Whenever I get a chance to leave Orlando, I really appreciate the little things in life I used to take for granite..such as tree's and moderately nice people
How expensive is it? Because of all the tourism, it's not as cheap as it should be.
Is it safe?No way
How is the weather?Because the whole area is filled with red lobsters, olive gardens, applebees, car lots, etc etc, there is little room left for shade. Most of the city is black asphalt, so when the sun is out, it is very hot. Sitting in backed up traffic while being cooked alive by the sun is the first thing I think of when living in Orlando.
Additional thoughts? Disney employee's over 17% of the population here, and pay most positions around $7.25 an hour. Most other jobs in the city are equally low paying. Whenever you have to drive somewhere, you most likely will have to take a toll road or the interstate. If there is a single accident on the interstate(I4), you will most likely arrive to your destination very late. I know I may sound a little overzealous with my complaining, but I assure you many other people who live here share the same opinion as I do. This opinion extends to neighboring cities such as Kissimmee. Orlando was recently awarded \"America's Angriest City\".
