I was raised in South Florida.

When I first arrived to Orlando to attend UCF, this was what I first observed about the city.

It's clean. It's very clean.

And ever since then I have been hooked.

We have a beautiful city. It is flanked by Winter Park which is stunning, Windermere and so many more places. Driving down Aloma/fairbanks I was admiring all the fantastic plants in bloom. Amazing place!

That's pretty cool. Yes, Orlando is a very clean city. I was surprised how high our water rank was listed though! I don't consider our water quality good at all, however I guess everywhere you go people say their water sucks.

They were talking about least toxic (superfund sites, etc) though I do agree Orlando is very clean for a major city and metropolitan area.

Maybe you are drinking the reclaimed water.
You want bad water drink what Tampa offers. It even stinks coming out of the faucet. My parents hated it.
We came from MI where the water comes bubbling out of springs thus the name Harbor Springs.
That water is directly bottled for consumption as is. Orlandos is just about as good.
No complaints here.

I spend about half my month every month in the northeast, and the difference in cleanliness is astounding between Orlando and those northern areas. I was in Erie the other day, it stinks. Philly is filthy, as is Hartford. Boston is fairly clean in the tourist area, but man, step out of that and it's filthy. About the only city I frequent up north that I think rivals Orlando in terms of cleanliness and air quality is State College, PA. Buth they lack good restaurants, nicer hotels, and their airport is smaller than a single wing of a single airside at MCO.
