Orlando's pleasant weather, affordable housing, and location at the center of one of the country's fastest growing markets, have helped make the city a boom town. New residents are drawn by the city's attractive setting among the inland lakes and citrus groves and by the short drive from the coastal beaches. Growing numbers of manufacturers and distributors have relocated to the city to take advantage of its mushrooming work force, and major attractions like Walt Disney World, Sea World of Florida, and Universal Studios Florida bring millions of visitors annually. New industries such as film production, military simulation and training, and various technologies are adding to the booming local economy.
