This is why Orlando is underrated. People expect it to be like it's theme parks, but it's just a regular city. That shows how little people actually know about Orlando.

(All from Orlando Florida - City Skyline Pictures, Prints, Canvas, Digital Stock)
I live in the area. Half of the square footage (or more) is empty and it's not the center of commerce for the region as real cities tend to have going for them.

This is Rosslyn, Virginia across the river from Washington, DC

This is Tysons Corner, Virginia which is 20-30 minutes southwest

Are both considered real "cities" because of vertical development?

The point is that Orlando is a city. Do you disagree?
