Don't bother moving here if you can't speak spanis - 3/23/2013
I don't even know where to begin. Orlando is truly a nightmare. The schools are horrible and way behind as far as coursework goes, compared to northern schools. I have a child that graduated with a 4.0 GPA who could not pass a test given to incoming freshmen at a Tennessee high school. Yes, there is the Bright Futures scholarship, but it is only good for Florida Colleges... I would be surprised if a graduate from a Florida University could pass a high school equivalency test. You cannot even imagine! The schools are not safe either. Not a day goes by that fights are not reported at the middle and high schools on the news. I know for a fact that there were over 100 fights in which kids were seriously harmed at my daughter's high school during her senior year. (most racially motivated-two of her friends were driving in a truck, all the passenger heard was "whitey don't belong here" and some pops, the driver was able to pull into a 7-11 and stop the truck, but did die then.

After 30+ years, I'm leaving - 2/17/2013
I was born and raised in Central Florida. After thirty-something years, I'll be moving to Pittsburgh, PA this summer. Why? This town has really dissolved into a puddle of watery crap. I know they say things were always better in the past, but this place has fallen apart. The Southern feeling to this place has completely vanished and given way to hostility. People here are just angry, miserable and hateful. On top of that, rent is out-of-control expensive while salaries are getting lower. This area has always paid lower than the national average thanks to The Mouse, but it was supported by a lower cost of living. On this very site, I'm finding major metropolitan areas that pay better with a lower cost of living. Once I began to travel extensively, I started to realize that it's hard to find a cultural heartbeat of Orlando. Other cities have unique enclaves carved out by immigrants with quirky shops and restaurants. Orlando is a huge (outlet) strip mall with a tiny Vietnamese district. Read More

College student Review - 2/8/2013
On a positive note, my money goes far enough to make ends meet and there is plenty of businesses to work for here. Attractions and theme parks with great benefits for both locals and tourists. We work then play. On a negative note, our public transportation system is nearly relyable and improving with hope from the sun rail station to bring more business to our buses. Orlando's crime rate is also high with several city gangs patrolling its streets. All in all its up to nature on if you have a good day or not here in Orlando. The weather is unpredictable... However it never snows Read More

OK place to visit, terrible place to live! - 12/16/2012
This is one of the worst places to live according to a BestpPlaces.net article and backed up by a Forbes magazine article. Living in Orlando or anywhere is not like a vacation here. The Florida Move Guide says that most who move here will come to despise the heat, humidity (summers are 6-9 months long), lack of sense of community with everyone moving in and out. Have kids in school? Near worst graduation rates in the nation. 1,000,000 have permits to carry guns in Florida, more than any other state and lots more if you count all the criminals. High crime and growing, stressed out drivers from worsening traffic, foreclosure capital of the world, average people walking around with guns shooting people. Visit and stick to the tourist areas (safer) but don't move here for retirement or if you have Read More

Orlando LOVES Criminals - 10/9/2012
Orlando is getting worse in regards to crime. Every night there is news about murders,burglaries,etc. and that is what we know about.I live in what is considered a great area of Orlando and it is getting where it is having just as much crime as the worse areas. I was at a Funeral Home for a service and my vehicle plus 2 others got smashed in windows and items stolen. Between the Orange County Sheriffs office and the judicial system,,the criminals love it here,,they get by with very little punishment for their crimes. A car thief got caught in my neighborhood and it was his 3rd car theft,he was out the next day and we were told there is really no punishment until he steals 10 cars!!!! Read More
