I wish I had found out about it sooner. When I started looking at moving back to Florida, I was looking to see if I could be happy in any of the big Florida cities. I was just looking for something that was good enough. Instead, I found Orlando, which is somewhere I'd be moving to even if it wasn't in FL. I'm amazed at what Orlando offers.

Good public transit with SunRail, decent bus system, Maglev and AAF incoming. Affordable housing. Great downtown with awesome nightlife. Good neighborhoods surrounding downtown. Historical neighborhoods such as Winter Park. A city that is growing. Plenty of outdoor activities. Only an hour to Cocoa Beach.

There's no way I could ever move back to Tampa. Orlando has everything it doesn't.

Enlightening +1. I always thought Tampa was more progressive than Orlando, but as an outsider, of course I could be wrong. It seems that I was.

Tampa is not a bad place at all, but more progressive is not one of it's strong suites.

Can't stand Tampa. It's not progressive at all.

Tampa is gorgeous with some of the world's most beautiful beaches...hard to hate that.

Neither is it Orlando's... Orlando struggles with progression. Or has in the past decade. This decade the tables could turn if they continue.

It's easy if you put a higher premium on more substantial things like career progression and not just lounging around at the beach all day, every day.

If I see someone use the word "progressive" ONE MORE TIME I'm going to get violent.
