I lived in the Orlando area, Winter Springs, for five years and highly recommend it. The East Coast beaches are less than an hour away, the weather is awesome, no state income tax, and the cost of housing is affordable. U. S. News & World Report gets it right when they point out that there are several parts to Orlando. There’s downtown Orlando, a center for nightclubs, restaurants, concerts and post-game celebrations. There’s residential Orlando, which feature canopied oaks and lakefront bungalows. And then there’s the Orlando that tourists know: the Orlando that’s home to seven of the world’s top theme parks and that welcomes about 68 million travelers each year, making it one of the most popular vacation destinations in America.
