They tell you there is no state income tax, but they don't warn you that you will pay through the nose for everything else. Auto insurance, home insurance (if you can get any) sales tax, actual cost of groceries and fuel, utilities, are all higher than they tell you. Forget quality phone, cable, internet service, it doesn't exist here. The crime rate, the weather risks all send insurance sky high and driving on the roads is akin to taking your life into your own hands every time.

Orlando is the gateway to hell - 11/14/2016

Orlando is one of the worst cities on the planet and not because of the city itself but because of the wretched people that live there. There are rude people in every city but in other cities there are many nice people too and great people Orlando has none of that. Orlando is literally riddled with the most bottom feeding scum humans on the face of the earth I promise you that. The freaks that Inhabit Orlando are soulless negative bottom feeding demons they're horrible people. Only negative people live in Orlando and Central Florida and the worst part is if you're positive these terrible crazy creepy negative Orlando freaks will do anything to bring you down. Let's say you're a happy positive wonderful person the trash residentsof Orlando will collectively dislike you and try to bring u down rather than appreciate who you are. I've been living in Orlando for 15 years and in the 15 years I've managed to make maybe three friends maybe. The people are the unfriendliest on the face of the planet. Meeting people in Orlando is virtually impossible because the people are so crappy rude and unfriendly and nobody wants to be friends with anyone. If you possess anything great such as beauty talent intellect the central Floridiots will basically hate you and treat you like dirt. They hate anyone with talent, intellect, beauty- anyone who is above them they will mistreat or outcase. This is why the only people who say orlando is so great, are losers and degenerates like the scum that live in that city. You will never encounter such classless, scummy zombielike weirdos in your life- the entire city of orlando is full of trashy bottom feeding jerks and losers. In other cities, you find rude people too but you also find good people- not in Orlando. Orlando is exclusively full of the worst people on the planet. When I go to other cities even in Florida I can generally meet nice normal people who are normal friendly. Not Orlando it's full of angry negative bitter rejects losers jerks bottom feeding scum from hell. It's the entire city full of soulless negative robotic weird garbage people. A guy recently talked to said oh that's why you're having so many problems you live in Orlando that city is full of mental patients, it's garbage. And what he said was so damn true. I once met a guy from Europe who said are you going to call me he said because all people do here is take your number and never talk to you again. Orlando is the worst. I've never encountered such horrible weird people in my life And he's horrible weird people are all losers they have nothing going for them though these bottom feeding gutter weirdos and they think they're so great and all they do is pick on others they are the worst people possible. They'll only be nice to you if you're a lame weirdo or loser like them. If you happen to be beautiful positive friendly or good they will shun outcast you and treat you like crap. That's why you'll see that the people that seem to like Orlando are all the same breed of loser trash because the loser trash losers of Orlando treat those losers well. Orlando's a collaboration of losers The quality of life is horrible because it's full of such pathetic horrible people there's no way of being in that city and having a good time. The city itself is decent though. All you'll find in orlando are horrible people, losers jerks and degenerates and jerks who will try to use you or take from you or bring you down. I was just leaving a movie theater- where some rude idiots were loudly crinkling popcorn bags the whole time. A hispanic man and his children were leaving another movie, and I crossed paths with them. The people of this city are worse than animals. This man's teenage son began acting crazy- yelling, screaming- almost like a gang member on drugs. I was sort of scared of him and he was 13. I heard him screaming in the bathroom and after a while he left. When I went outside, I was walking to my car, and the stupid hispanic man decided to pull out in a certain way, and do a u-turn to come back around and follow me. It was so creepy and stupid. Just to intimidate and bother me--for no reason. This is what families do in orlando- families have no morals and are screwed up freaks. I then went to a wendy's where a horrible stupid rude orlando idiot worker did something so rude and caused me to spill my drink in my car. He did it on purpose b/c orlando is full of the most misogynistic and hateful males who hate pretty women and they do anything to mistreat them or be mean to them. Other cities are nothing like this. Yes there are jerks everywhere but orlando is the worst. Living in orlando means getting abused by all the psycho sick jerks and creeps there. When i go to visit jacksonville, heck even tampa, it's nothing like this- those cities have people with souls, but orlando is full of these uncouth crazy weird people.

Ibn Seena Academy - 11/3/2016

Ibn Seena Academy is great school in Orlando. Teachers and staff members are so caring and willing to help with anything they can. Very friendly environment. My children love this school and this is the prove how well Ibn Seena Academy is working with our children. Tuition and other fees are very low and affordable comparing other Islamic schools in Orlando. Overall awesome school, if you have a child choose Ibn Seena Academy and you will not regret it! Thank you for opening and running such a amazing school.

Yeah, it's real, real, bad. - 10/26/2016

First off, native Floridians are for the most part wonderful people. Central Florida however is full of people from the North East corridor, and the slums of Americas mid west. I used to think that Central Florida was some giant fenceless prison somehow created by the shadow government where the countries nastiest, least sophisticated sociopaths were somehow secretly herded for eventual purging but then how did I become one of them? The truth is far less sinister but still the truth. It is a melting pot and cultural differences lead to conflict and stress. Central Florida is also a very poor place, and poverty, scarcity can and does bring out the worst in people. Why so poor here? Wages are low. Because Disney sets the bar everyone has to "Limbo". The vast majority of people here make 10 or less an hour. Cost of living is comparable to the rest of the country. Houses are still "cheap" but rents are very, very, high unless you want to live someplace where you are afraid to sleep at night or leave anything of value at home when you go to work. Assuming you can find a job. Let me mention while I'm thinking about it, the professional class down here. Everywhere around the country there are bad lawyers, doctors etc. but after some selection you can usually find the excellent ones. Here in Central Florida that process of finding "excellence", is potentially devastating. Just saying, it's tricky wherever you are, but here it's depressingly desperate. Now what makes all this most baffling is the potential this place seeminly offers. The sunshine, the blue skies, the lush tropical green, the temperatures, all the great outdoors, and yet this state has yet to really capitalize on it's natural beauty except to offer it up as a place to come to while you wait to die. Back to the people. Again, "natives" excepted, the people that come here are for the most part the refuse of everywhere else. White, black, hispanic, asian, purple, does not matter, and of course this is a generalisation, and a curious phenomena, but no less true. People are rude. PERIOD. It is unrelenting too. It's exponentially multiplied and exasperated by the volume and constant influx of more. Rude begets rude. Try to turn it around yourself, be a one person army afainst it all and you will go insane. A brick wall, is still a brick wall no matter how many times you beat your fist against it. I use what I call the shopping cart test to explain to people what I mean about a culture of rude. Think about where you live when you go to the grocery store. Look around the parking lot. How many people return their carts to the store when they are done unloading, or to the "corral"? If you are one of those people who don't bother yourself then the question is lost on you so don't bother to read on. If you see carts all over and no-one returns the carts and it doesn't bother you in the least, then come on down you might like it here. Here, NO ONE returns the carts when done. Instead the give it a good kick and send it careening off of as many cars as possible. This may seem a silly example to some people but I use it to ilustrate what I see as the endemic, systematic? all pervasive, underlying indicator of some fundamental deficiency in the socio-economic fabric of Central Florida society. SAD. Anyway, this has been therapeutic for me. In closing if you have read this far let me qualify myself. I'm 50. I have lived in Ct., N.Y.(City), S.C., Oh.,Mass., and D.C./Md. Not one of those places did I want to leave, but work or family prompted relocation. I found wonderful reasons to love all those places and miss them all. I am not angry with Central Florida but I do wish to warn others about the truth of this place. It is not nice. Opportunity is not here.

Orlando is the worst city in the world - 8/27/2016

orlando is a horrible place- the people are just the worst to exist. Rudest people ever and with the worst attitudes. There is nothing good about orlando. Trying to meet people? You'd be better off trying to scale mount everest- it's impossible. The people are rude, lame, RUDE, not friendly, uninviting. I tried joining clubs and groups and always got mistreated shunned outcasted. Want a relationship?? Isn't gonna happen- ive known women who moved here from other cities who are baffled at how to meet others. They see couples and say "how did they meet?? orlando is a city for losers...its a terrible place. The drivers are the WORST period. Ive driven in LA rush hour and it doesn't compare to the idiocy in orlando. Orlando has a lot of STUPID rude classless garbage people living there. They HATE anyone who's pretty good looking has class etc. WEIRDOS live in orlando. BAD people live in orlando. Garbage people. All the trash of the planet congregates to orlando and settles there. Restaurants are rude, everyone is rude. People live in orlando for a few months and write blogs about how bad the city is. The world doesn't know just how crappy orlando is...this blog is here to tell them--screw you orlando and you sh*tty awful residents there---you're the worst nastiest losers to exist... that prosecutor who made those comments about orlando who was suspended--he was totally right- and that's how people feel about living in orlando. it is a cesspool of trash sh*t people..I used to say it's like a parallel universe or hologram...the BREED of trash people in orlando is the WORST. Every city u go to has a breed of people- and in a lot of places the people are really nice or at least decent. Not orlando- it has GARBAGE people..i mean TRASH people- the kind of losers that would harass women at their property or just be psychopaths- it has these weird cold soulless no personality weirdos and robots..orlando is really the WORST. You only find the WORST jerks living in that awful place..

Orlando: a melting pot of jerks - 11/8/2015

Orlando, Florida is a place where people move to because they hate snow. As a result, you're seeing the worst of humanity from places like Pennsylvania, Ohio, New York, New Jersey, and the beacon of bright light known as the Northeast. People in Orlando are rude. Very rude. I have lived in many major cities and towns all over the U.S., and this town has issues. It's not unusual to drive down I-4 (the only major highway servicing this town) and have somebody cut you off without a turn signal or refuse to let you over after you've utilized yours. It's normal to make a transaction with a cashier without her even making eye contact with you. In fact, you could probably get through an entire day without a smile here. Southern hospitality? Ha! The population here is low-brow due to low pay and terrible schooling. After a while of living here, you will no longer be shocked to see a Confederate flag being waved on a huge truck with a gun rack on the back. The KKK is alive and well in St. Cloud, just south of here, and in Putnam and Lake counties to the west. Speaking of low paying jobs, thank The Mouse for that. While it's true that there's no state income tax, it's also true that wages are low. I transferred into a company because there was nobody educated in the area who could fulfill the position, but I see many college (UCF) graduates who top out around $16 or $17 an hour. Most people in the area are topping out around $9 or $10 an hour. Considering that rent is extremely high, I don't know how most people live. There is a large homeless population in Orlando due to the weather. There's also a big drug problem here, so often when you are just trying to pump gas, a tweaker will approach you and ask for a dollar for "gas." It's frustrating. Public transportation? Non-existant. Taking a Lynx bus is the biggest step to admitting that you're a loser with nothing better to do than sit on an un-shaded bench on the side of the road for hours at a time, praying that a bus will accidentally pass by your area. There is a train, Sunrail, that was designed to be a failure by only running on weekdays during work hours, but failing to unload people near the major office complexes that run down the I-4 corridor. Speaking of I-4, it is the only major highway that runs through here. It is extremely torn up due to a misguided renovation project, and it's causing mayhem throughout the city because nobody has time for this. Ten years of backroads (also under construction!) that are clogged and a commute time that has doubled in the last six months. Is it no wonder everybody here hates each other? We spend too much time together in traffic. I have lived in Texas, Colorado, California and Washington, and even I have never seen anything this chaotic. In terms of beauty, the city is dotted with bland ugly architecture and shopping malls. Anything older than 30 years is ripped down so another condo can be built on top of it. There are a few good mom and pop restaurants around town, but Orlando is Chain Central. Have a picky family member that won't eat anything but chicken fingers? We seriously have a chain restaurant devoted to chicken fingers. Yes, there are beaches, but they are a good 45 minute to an hour drive away. The city is landlocked, and in the summer (which runs from April-November) it is stifling hot. No problem, you think, I'll get a pool. 1/3 of my friends have pools that are broken and they haven't bothered to fix, so now they have a mosquito infested swamp just steps from their back door. The only positive thing about Orlando is the winter, when it doesn't snow. After all, that's why people move here, right? It's certainly not for natural beauty, Southern charm, friendly faces, great infrastructure, quality schools, or great wages. It's simply the lack of snow.

Gainesville FL - 8/19/2015

g or biking Move downtown. I lived there and loved it. You can walk or bike anywhere you need to go. The bus system has more routes down there as well. There are lots of great restaurants and bars in this area. The brewery, First Magnitude has free yoga on Sundays. The rent downtown is very reasonable as well, especially the historic buildings. Duckpond is a good area to look also, and still in walking, biking distance of everything. Gainesville has so may unique places: the Top, Boca Fiesta, Satchels, Flacos, Curia (a new coffee shop), Wolfgang, and Urban Thread (for shopping), and Lucky's, where you can drink beer while you grocery shop. And dont forget to visit the two awesome local breweries: Swamphead, and First Magnitude. Another great thing about Gainesville is that it's not too far from St Augustine. Ginnie Springs is great as well... Also, downtown there is a farmers market every Wednesday, and dont forget about the bike trails! I've been gone a month, and miss it so much. Hope this helps :) Also, look at Trip Advisor for more ideas. If you don't have a car, you should live downtown. Grocery stores, post office, bank, all in walking distance.

Zip Codes Please - 6/24/2015

Please post your zip code with a review. Orlando is very spread out and letting readers know what part you lived in will help tremendously. I have been to visit Orlando number of times and loved the downtown and Winter Park areas. Reviewers please make your reviews objective as possible. I put zero credibility for any review of any city that can't find one positive thing to say. I've traveled extensively in this country and can always find something good even in the worst places.

Gave it 3 years. Adios, Orlando - 12/12/2014

In a nutshell, orlando is... poor minorities and nouveau riche, sprawl, poor infrastructure, sleaze and scam artists, slow, boring, expensive, crime ridden, very low wages, humid, and void of culture. It's pretty much an incredibly poorly done poor mans imitation of LA. You've been forewarned. You're welcome.

orlando economy - 11/11/2014

do not come here unless you want to work selling timeshares or at Disney. It seems that there are only two major economies in the Orlando area. The tourism and elderly care industries. If selling timeshares wasn't hard enough or shady enough, most of these companies pay their employees $ 9.00/hr plus commission and the fact that they are always advertising job openings leads one to believe that obviously, there is incredible turn around at these companies. There is much more opportunity down south in the Miami/Ft Lauderdale area. The problem is that rent and housing costs are through the roof. Aside from all this, the weather is unbearable due to the humidity for at least 6 months of the year. There are native Floridians who still are not accustomed to the heat. In all fairness to Orlando, from the months of November to April the humidity dies down and it could be pleasant on most days.

It's not all Disney - 7/31/2014

I lived in Orlando for 10 years and was pretty happy for most of that time. The heat, especially in summer, is oppressive but, being single, I would just head to the beach or stay indoors. Once I had my daughter, I began to see things differently. Crime is horrific. We lived in a nice middle-upper middle class, gated neighborhood. One night a man who had stolen a vehicle and was evading police was shot and killed on our front lawn. Every night I could hear drag racing and what I believe were gun shots in the distance. A family owned convenience store around the corner from our neighborhood was robbed in the middle of the day by 4 men wielding sawed off shotguns...saw them speeding away shooting into the air. I was a high school teacher at one of the 'better' high schools in Orlando....it was a nightmare. The students were thugs - they wore ankle monitors to school, PO's visited them, they conducted business in class, more than one male student flashed the other students, one even assaulted another student with his penis. Downtown was overrun with homeless people. The downtown bars were awesome when I first lived there - they had some pretty cool, unique places to hang out (Go Lounge, Kit Kat Club, I Bar, Sapphire Supper Club) but all those unique spots were replaced by boring polished corporate-owned establishments. Boring. Aside from all this, there is no culture or entertainment to speak of. (Disney and the I drive area do not constitute entertainment imo). It's pretty much a cesspool. I knew as soon as our daughter was born that we would leave and we did when she was 16 months old. Best decision we ever made.

orlando is the worst city in the world... - 5/17/2014

no he is right...ORLANDO IS THE WORST!! people there will be nice to you if you are average- if you are different or even outstanding you will get abused. the residents are ALL PSYCHOPATHS. very few are NORMAL. Orlando is full of devil people? they aren't human they are robotic demons from hell designed to infest that city and destroy the normal people that live there. there are no good jobs and recruiters are losers from other cities who shun good qualified people. ive worked at places full of angry ugly fat Hispanics and low lifes who all treated me like dirt. there is so much evil and bad in that city its shocking. the people are the WORST worse than some ghetto place in harlem or even in any third world country. these people in Orlando aren't people they are soulless maggots. neighbors are sociopaths- an entire neighborhood of sociopaths HARASSED me for no reason and pick on random people. I hope all of these evil worthless people perish in hell where they belong. FAMILIES are evil disturbed deranged BAD PEOPLE. its IMPOSSIBLE to make friends unless the clicks of psychos accept you and most people are so closed unfriendly no one will. the people of Orlando are the most disgusting filth to exist...trust me no one can hate a place like this...it isn't a place full of humans. I agree with Gabriel totally- many people move here and just suffer because of the quality of filth humans that exist there...I am a kind sweet caring smart beautiful educated female- anywhere I go almost I get shunned mistreated talked bad about judged- even chickfilas bully me for no reason. I cant make friends people are so mean unfriendly...sick people there. if I try to make friends I get kicked out, banned. the people there aren't human?? even at Disney its full of nasty rude cast members now who are arrogant and crazy. the entire city is made up of sociopaths. thai and Asian restaurant employees are psychos. Orlando is the worst city on the PLANET...I promise you this. its worse than some trashy third world country...its the WORST.

You can get a plan F in Orlando for as low as $150/month this is not a Select plan either. The highest premiums are for those 80+ but are still significantly lower then New York more then $100/month less then everyone in New York pays. You also lock in your enrollment age for the rest of your life. If you want to discuss this or Medicare advantage plans or PDP plans please call me. I am a licensed Healtn Insurance agent.

Professional Health Care : No Fear of Regulation - 10/12/2013

As far as Orlando / Orange County Fl goes, you can find some great professionals here. Google search (Tosh Florida Flat Hot Dumb) Many professionals care less about professionalism, courtesy, the law etc.. I think, they believe we are "dumb" and unsophisticated. Food service - health department, no enforce, refusing to recycling business! Orange County - no money to enforce. There is an underlining provincial, intellectual (if you call it that) isolationist. They have no clue about the world here and eating healthy is hard w limited access to fish.

This ain't Mickey Mouse or you're Grandparent's Fl - 9/28/2013

(My Synopsis) If you're rich, white and obnoxious you'll love it here. If you're anything other than that, turn around and go back to where you came from, or be prepared to enter your new living hell. "You need to speak Spanish to live here." False. Mostly everyone here knows how to speak English and will speak it if necessary. It is true though that there are companies that won't hire you unless you're bilingual. This seems to be an increasing number all the time. "It's hot and humid and there are a lot of bugs." True "You need a car to live there." TRUE. VERY VERY TRUE The public transportation here is the worst I've ever seen. The "city" is very spread out and it's pretty much impossible to get around without wheels of some sort. "Disney controls everything here." False. Rich white folks control everything here. Disney isn't even in Orlando, it's in Kissemmee. "There's lots to do in Orlando." The downtown is lame as hell. It's a bunch of banks, lawyers offices, condo towers and bars. Literally, that's about it.Everything else is in the outskirts and is expensive as hell. Again, rich, white and obnoxious is what thrives here. Also, there is also no shopping downtown whatsoever, it's bizarre. Also, everything here is incredibly, I mean unbelievably commercial. If you're into Starbuck's and Wal*Mart, this will be you're heaven. Aside from the Spanish places, nothing here is authentic. Real pizza is non-existent. "The rent prices are out of control." For the wages paid, definitely "There aren't any jobs here." False. There are tons of jobs here, they just don't pay anything and if you have a criminal record, forget making any money here. "There are lots of scams here." VERY VERY TRUE, be careful. "The people here are mean and rude." True. Orlando has the slowness of the south with the attitude of the north. You must remember, nobody is really FROM here. It's rare you run into anybody who is legitimately a native. Another thing I can't believe people haven't mentioned is the HUGE issues of drugs, prostitution and homelessness. It's freakin EVERYWHERE here. Tent cities all over the place (hidden in the woods), not to mention downtown, where it's right in your face, they're everywhere. (Homeless people drug addicts and prostitutes that is). This place is sad. Don't move here, trust me!
