The most modern and progressive city in Florida. Orlando is not just Disney World, Sea World, Universal, and the other tourist destinations. Orlando, or greater Central Florida, is a rappidly expanding commerce center attracting large regional banking centers, high tech industry, is the second largest convention destination in the nation, and large insurance district. Central Florida is made up of Orange, Seminole, Osceola, Lake, Polk, and Volusia counties. It is the wealthiest and most thriving area in all of Florida, predicted to become the next LA, without the blight and slums. Central Florida encompasses a circular area having a 40 mile radius. It is home to the University of Central Florida, poised to become the State's largest University in the next five years. There are two law schools, and soon to be a full medical school in Orlando. Unemployment is the lowest in the nation, at less than 2%. The Downtown area has focused on creating a large residential city center, which is attracting many more young professionals to this area.

Orlando is not Lake Buena Vista, Kissimmee, or St. Cloud.
Disney World is in Lake Buena Vista, not Orlando.
the largest amount of annoying tourism in Florida
it's actually a cool city with a whole bunch of exciting things to do, but the traffic is horrendous and whenever you mention Orlando all people think about is amusement parks.
FL native: heyy, you wanna go over to Orlando for a couple days?
Northerner: ooh, can we go to Disneyworld!?
FL native: ...stupid tourist, I'm going downtown!
The only major city in Florida
that every Floridian
visits, but to which no Floridian ever willfully moves.
This arises for a couple of reasons:
1)Orlando is the only major city in Florida without a beach.
2)Floridians already see enough tourists, so Orlando is like Hell on Earth.
"Sorry bro, your Orlando lakes don't compare to my Miami beaches."
"Let's just go to Orlando for the day. I can't stand the Mouse much longer than that."
A very hott guy. Someone who you can trust, but than again cant. Easy to fall inlove with, hard to fall out of. Becareful, he might be a playa, but he'll always be there for you. He's unpredictable, and may give you a heartache ! But its worth it. May be caught up in the wrong things, but has a heart. A guy that you will never forget and will always love.
Jasmine: 'Hey serina how was your day?"
Serina: "Good! Me and Orlando hung out, I'll never forget today."
Jasmine: "Oh cool.And why is that?"
Serina: "Because its impossible to forget are memories."
A city that was destined to be one of the fastest economically growing cities until Governor Rick Scott turned down the idea for a high speed rail to concentrate on more important matters like screwing teachers and working people out of jobs and retirement.
-Hey did you hear about Orlando getting a high speed rail?
-Yea, but that Tea Bagger governor turned down a proposal that would pay for 90% of the project and generate jobs.
