Apopka, FL

Small town feel in a rapidly growing urban area - 5/18/2008
One of the things that impresses me the most about Apopka is its small town charm. Keep in mind that as a city we are about a dozen miles from metro Orlando. Central Florida as a whole despite the econmic downtown, is growing in population and with that crime. In contrast, Apopka's growth has mirrored that of it's big neighbor Orlando without nearly the crime problem. This is a community of good public schools and 2 very pristine state parks, "Rock Springs", and "Wekiva State Parks". Apopka, is an authentic Central Florida town, far removed from the major theme park phoniness and congestion, but close enough, (30 minutes away) to experience it for the day. I have been living in Apopka for the last 16 years with my wife and young children ages 6 and 9. I myself moved here from South Florida where i grew up. I would not wish to live in that part of the state nor do i wish to move anywhere else in the country that experiences cold weather. Many transplants to Central Florida complain about the heat and humidity, the bugs, the traffic congestion and sadly the crime but here in Apopka we get by and work towards making our community a better place to live and raise our families.
