To "get on the scene", try Downtown Orlando, if you can afford it. If not try Northern Orlando like Winter Park, Maitland, Altamonte Springs, Longwood and Lake Mary....great places with a lot of young professionals. Good Luck.

Don't forget College Park too which is kinda like a small Royal Oak, if you know that area around Detroit. Where in Detroit are you moving from? I'm also moving down the "D", 3 weeks in fact and I've also lived in Orlando before and had a great time. I'm with you on the crime in Orlando, it simply isn't as bad as people portray it as, every large city has it's bad and good areas and 90% of metropolitan areas have high crime-it's the nature of the beast. It's risen sure, because a ridiculous amount people move there every year. More people=more crime=more stats.

forgot one more location that's trendy now downtown O-town is Thorton Park. But I hear it's pretty pricey too. Your best bet is probably North Orlando and Winter Park/College Park-nice area but still close enough to the city.
