Review of Apopka, Florida

Not that great of a place to live
Star Rating - 1/31/2008
Moved here two years ago from San Diego to escape the high housing costs and the prices here were better. However, the wages in Orlando are very low and traffic can be horrible. There are no major freeways other than I4 and it shrinks down to two lanes at some points. The climate is nice if you enjoy sweating from March to December. Summers are brutal and bug filled. Being that there are so many people from so many places, drivers are rude and auto insurance is more expensive that San Diego. Home owners insurance here is over $2K annually beacuse of the hurricanes.

If you like heat,a preponderence of low paying jobs, bad commutes and bugs then come to Central Florida.
