if you don't mind being 10-15 min out of downtown look into the conway area and the 32806 area.

Just keep away from southwest of Downtown. Mostly south of Colonial, and west of 1-4.

I agree.

Conway is SE of downtown. SW of downtown is Holden Heights and the Lake Mann/Washington Shores areas. Parramore is more directly West of downtown. Most areas immediate to downtown are very nice. To the north you have the Ivanhoe area. To the east and northeast you have Thornton Park and Colonialtown. To the southeast you have Delaney Park and getting into Conway. To the northwest you have College Park. These are all older, treelined and established areas with great high schools and more of a community feel than is common in a lot of the area.

Zip codes to look at: 32801, 32803, 32806, 32812, 32804, 32814.
Zip codes to avoid: 32805, 32811, 32839.

Downtown has many, many new condo/apartment rental units, the two large dogs may be a problem, depending on what type of dogs they are, but downtown Orlando is the most dog friendly neighborhood in Orlando. If you are going to be near Orlando Regional, the neighborhoods close by are all very nice, older homes that range from mansions to well kept bungalows. Check for house rentals in Delaney Park, Wadeview Park, Ferncreek and Michigan, Lake Cherokee, Lake Davis, Mills and Briercliff, Summerlin and Briercliff, Kaley Ave., SoDo, Lake Lucerne, Thornton Park, Colonialtown, Eola Heights, South Eola, Bumby, Lake Como, Primrose, Grant St., Bel-Aire, Lake Lancaster, South Delaney, Southern Oaks, Michigan St., Edgewood/Pine Castle/Belle Isle, Conway, Dover Shores, Central Park, Audobon Park, College Park, Orwin Manor.....Most of Orlando city limits is downtown Orlando. Stay East of I-4(Except College Park), go as far north as Par St. or Fairbanks, as far south as Hoffner Ave and as far east as Conway Rd, Gaston Foster or even Semoran Blvd. Neighborhoods off Curry Ford Rd from its beginning at Ferncreek to almost Semoran Blvd. may have something for you. Baldwin Park may be kind of pricey, especially if you are talking mobile homes. Basically the only decent mobile home parks in Orlando close to town are Starlight Ranch on Pershing and Gulfstream Harbor on Goldenrod. Further out on East 50 is Fairways, pretty far from downtown. Metro Orlando is not that well known for the more well kept 55+ mobile home communities unless you are in Lake or Polk counties, well out from downtown.

I too am thinking about moving from NJ to FL - the Orlando area and renting an apt. Are there any apt complexes or neighborhoods to avoid? I live in the "hood" now and really want out...also an good places to find work? NJ is a sinking ship and I want to get out ASAP.

We have a significantly higher unemployment rate than NJ does.

Stay in NJ.

Seriously.
