I'm planning to relocate to Orlando for school and this was one of the better apartment complexes that I found during my search. From what I've read, apparently Metro West had a crime problem and anything near the Mall of the Millenias area is damn near forbidden. Please let me know because I don't want to mess up and get myself an apartment in the wrong area of Orlando.

Thanks.

Haven't made up my mind as of yet, but it was up there on my list. Another place was in Metro West, but when the leasing agent gave me a newsletter illustrating that Metro West was no longer the crime hub that it was believed to be, I kind of nixed that one.

Do you know of any "nice" areas with apartment complexes (not homes; not ready to purchase as of yet)?

I'd even be willing to live in a smaller outlying town or city and commute to Orlando everyday (as long as it's not an hour each way).

I used to live in Park Central and I don't recommend it. The location is the worst thing about it...right next to the prison and close to the bad part of OBT. I felt safe in the complex but I didn't enjoy grocery shopping or pumping gas. Drive about 20 minutes down John Young from Park Central and you will be in Hunter's Creek...much better.

You might want to check out Apartment Ratings - Apartments for Rent with Ratings and Reviews from Actual Renters and see what people are saying about the place. It may not be 100% accurate but you can get an idea.

If your going to school at UCF there is no point in living on that side of town. East Orlando, Waterford Lakes is right by school and is a pretty nice area
