Safe ? Orlando ??? The crime here is unbelieveable. If you have kids, be prepared, there is a rapist/murderer that has not be caught yet, and its scary.
If you could afford Winter Park, its REALLY nice there and I think there will be a stop there for the rapid transit train project. DO NOT MOVE TO 'PINE HILLS' or as we call it, crime hills.
Altamonte Springs is nice too. South Orlando is not. GOOD LUCK TO YOU AND YOUR FAMILY :) And Welcome to Orlando

I've been living in central Florida near SR 50 crossing Alafaya.I'm near the mall area. It's great living near the mall. This area is pretty good still. Yes you should check Altamonte Spring and Oviedo. Best wishes.

This is easy drive around the areas you like, if there are people hanging around sitting on the porches, standing on the corners, or cars or tucks on blocks, engines on the ground, tires leaning on the carport,or parked in the yard front or back, Loud rap or salsa music playing, Avoid at all costs.

Look for this instead, trees lots of trees, two lane roads, people riding their bicycles, childern playing in the yard with the hose, Garage doors down, cars and or suvs parked on the driveway. Birds singing, the smell of bbq, the sound of lawn maintentance being done. The humm of an 4-5 ton AC unit, or the sound of the pool pump. Buy here would be your best bet.

PS Color and or Race will not be an issue here either.

You've pretty much nailed it for anywhere, not just the Orlando area.

Sounds like my neighborhood except we also have a guard shack with someone on duty 24hours a day and really annoying speed bumps. One guy had the right idea though. He put gasoline on it and set it on fire. The architectural committee had heart attacks. Did them some good. Quit trying to be so damn bossy.

I don't live in Orange Co. It's about an hour and a half away. I never put myself in a position to be arrested, Ron.

Can someone please let me know if Orlando is a safe city. I'm relocating from Ohio and I would like like to know if I'm making a bad decision. Should I stay in Cleveland or move to Orlando. I'm actually living in Lakewood, Ohio which is a very nice neighborhood, but I'm really interested in moving to florida. Can someone suggest a nice neighbohood away from " GoonCity " I've heard a lot of negative things about gangs in Orlando but there has to be somewhere I could go to avouid the gang activity.

Same logic applies to Orlando as it does to most cities: don't live in the city itself; stick to the suburbs. Seminole County is OK. Avoid Sanford and Apopka. Winter Park is nice but pricey. Forget about Osceola County, unless you can afford Celebration. As for Orlando proper, I'd have to say "no".

Your best bet would be to research schools, even if you don't have children. My experience has been good schools are usually in good neighborhoods.

Anywhere in Seminole County except Sanford or the areas that directly border it.

Not sure if there are any good areas in Orlando if most of the folks are like the miserable vigilantes here on topix.
