Review of Apopka, Florida

The ups and downs of Apopka
Star Rating - 10/4/2007
Ok, so I grew up in Apopka...moved away to experience other places. When it came time for my husband and I to start a family, Apopka was my first choice for a place to raise my children. Yes, it has seen its increase in crime (so has everywhere else in Florida). I would hardly say I have to leave my house armed. We are just 25 minutes away from Orlando and we can travel there by expressway and not the notorious I-4. We have another expressway called the 429 which is our own private expressway to DISNEY (about 30 min. away)!!! The community is also very helpful. I am a stay at home mom and we have two community organizations for the children we participate in all FREE!!! The traffic during rush hour is a nightmare down main street, but locals know the way around all that. So, I cant walk alone at night down the street here..but I ask, how many places in America can a young woman do that anymore???
