They fear they'll have nothing to do except Disney World. Read this, I'm sure it will help. Why do you hate Orlando so much?

Look at the question though.

Let's BREAK it down.

Orlando Residents don't want Prospective/Interested Movers to Orlando because Orlando Residents think it sucks.

But yet Orlando Residents are here and they are not going on anywhere.

Now I truly believe that a prospective mover should get ALL sides and perspective of the City Beautiful. So to me its not a problem with a resident voicing concerns and some dangers.

However it is a tad annoying for these same people to constantly complain about Orlando and yet they are still here.

No city is perfect. And you can find in any city many residents that hate their situation.

I've never heard of Orlando residents not wanting other people to move here. That's rediculous.

Let me take a stab at this. Truth be told, we plan on moving from Northern VA to Orlando the first chance we get. I have spent plenty of time in central FL, and have a lot of friends that live in Orlando. These are not all my opinions, but just what I've observed.

Traffic on I-4 can be brutal, especially in the tourist corridor and downtown during rush hour.

There is a ton of urban sprawl. Cookie-cutter developments with no real sense of community.

It's a transient area. Not a ton of people that have roots.

Construction on roads like 50, as well as construction in communities that are being built. This creates noise, eyesores, and traffic.

Crime has gone down in the past couple years, but it's still a concern of many residents. It has traveled from places like Pine Hills, into areas like Metro West and Ocoee.

Residents that have lived in Orlando their whole lives and have seen a great influx of people. Some of which they resent.

Some (not all) residents hate tourists.

The unemployment rate is high, and the avg salary is pretty low.

It's hot and humid for at least 4 months of the year.



....and I can't wait to call it home!

My friend.

You are 100% accurate.

But guess what I freaking love it

I can't speak for living outside of the state, but I have lived in Pensacola, Key Largo, Tampa, Sarasota and now Orlando. I can honestly say that out of those choices, Orlando has been BY FAR my favorite city to live in. I could give you a hundred reasons why, but I'm sure I'd be repeating something that is on some thread here already. As far as Florida is concerned as a whole, Orlando has it all, is close to everything (not too far from the gulf or the ocean) and has a nice infrastructure.

People in Orlando aren't moving out? Is that what you're suggesting?

Of course people are moving out of Orlando.

People move out of every city.

What I am suggesting is for those current residents who are living in Orlando and continue to complain, why are they still there?
