Where is St.Cloud?

too many drugs same as the rest of florida but for the most part st cloud is a decent place to live if you enjoy the slow pace of small town life. and of course there are bad areas in the town like any where else such as river road, crawford and the adjacent area. Some of the state streets have gone downhill also like Florida(northside), Massachusettes(southside), and some others in between. Actually, recently there have been a number of drug related shootings on these streets. Also, a few appartment complexes are better off left alone such as st. cloud village and sawyer estates. But like I stated earlier its all about the drugs (marijuana,oxycontin,cocaine) and your much more likely to come across a drug dealer than a murderer.

I know for a fact that white or hispanic in St.Cloud does not mean any difference cause the P.D. Gets just as many calls from each and respond the same. It's not crime free and here lately it's been kinda crazy. Yet, if you check out Orlando, Tampa , Miami , etc. We are no worse. At least in St.cloud if you call the police more often than not you will get an officer within a very satisfactory amount of time unless there is a major emergency. We have good stores, and local mom and pop businesses and some franchises. Short 30 min drive to Orlando and 45 to the beach. Lots of parks and city events check out www.stcloud.org . So, yeah there are drugs, and a few unsavory people. And we gave had our share of sad tragic senseless murders and crimes but we are still a good town. Times have changed and we have to be vigilant and more careful but everything has changed not just thus town. We have great schools, and a decent police and great fire dept. The grass is not that green on the other side. If it is then move there.

Funny that **** Jack thinks so poorly of St. Cloud. I have been living there almost 2 years. Maybe I'm one of those who moved in that he thinks made it spiral downward? Hmmm? For a town that the streets are virtually empty by 10pm. Where there are no homeless people roaming the streets. Where the most dangerous criminal on the streets is a drunk driver leaving Lennys or Cracker House at 2am, I would say it is a pretty awesome place to live. Yes, there are "rumors" that a lot of drugs exists in St. Cloud (particularly meth) however, I have yet to have a dope pusher bang on my window at the street corner to insist on selling me drugs. Nor have I been robbed, held a gun point, shot at, raped, beaten, or even yelled at. Most people are quite friendly and it truly has a small town atmosphere. In fact, I actually have a secret neighbor that is so kind to place my newspapers on my front porch by the door to keep them from getting wet and roll my trash can back from the curb on trash days ... I have no clue who this person is but each week they secretly do this. We live in a world where neighbors like that rarely exists. Wish I could thank them.
What area do you live in that's where I want to move to!!!! Seriously I'm moving from TX.

This in my opinion is not a nice place to live.

And most people don't have an issue with hispanics. It's the way they go absolutely everywhere in mass, act like they are not in this country and make no effort to speak English.They totally ignore everyone else and take over public parks.

Wars were started this way. Wars were perpetuated this way. If I visited a Spanish-speaking country I would be speaking Spanish. I would speak it as much as I could because I am respectful of the people who reside there even though I do not have love for the language at all.

Rednecks and hispanics are not a fun mix. We get some people from all over, here but they don't stay and you only see them down at the lake.

I live right near the "downtown" area and it's a real crapshoot. Nobody has what it takes to keep a business running and store owners are renowned for rudeness and poor service. Everyone here is in their own little hick click and did I mention that Saint Cloud, Fl has over 28 REGISTERED SEX OFFENDERS WITHIN TWO MILES OF EACH OTHER?

What the flip, people. You always hear the same bobblehead doo doo about how this is a "great place to have kids".

I lived here for 3 months and had an attempted break in, twice. Good thing I locked my back door.

Saint Cloud just should not have any back doors.

:Sigh: cute place in some regards but there are more and more drunks and little thug types walking around and yes, I've lived in Tampa and Orlando in poorer neighborhoods before as a young adult and it's silly to see the same types of people moving here acting like this is their new ghetto.

Nothing to do, depressed, choked energy, rednecks everywhere,people who want to go but feel stuck, marital fighting outside in front of everybody, Mexicans who scream at and harass me and other women when we are not with a man.

And no, I am NOT RACIST but if you think I am get over it. Pre the lets-not-offend-anybody-corpor ate America days you could say you didn't like rudeness in a group of people without being racist. Also, most of the little thugs around here are white.

Anytime you have this kind of mass migration people are going to have issues. It's not a racist situation except with some people and to me that's a waste of energy. I don't dislike hispanics, I just don't like being near them when they all get together and pretend this is not America. Plain and simple. I wouldn't appreciate anyone who came here and did that.

You will find no place to go here and since Kissimmee is a ghetto, now you can't even drive there to get supplies/recreation without almost running some guy over who is crossing the street on a main highway just a few yards away from the crossing line. Wow. The intelligence level here is a joke. My fiance has seen grown adults who cannot read. Really. Only here, guys. And maybe in Arkansas...

Don't let the cute homes fool you. Nobody can drive, people are not bright and you can't hold a conversation with anybody.

And the police...
And their shiny, untouched cars.
The cops have a really strong presence here in St, Cloud.
They haven't bothered us, yet and an upside is that if you live here they leave you alone but if you are just passing through they take advantage of that severely because they don't want to stir up dirt in their own town.
They are creepy and really are just everywhere like cockroaches. It makes you wonder what they are doing half the time because there is really no murder or any terrible crimes, here. They put their sirens on and act dramatic for anything and I would not want to be arrested, here. They are not nice to young people who they suspect to have drugs, especially non-whites.
They just seem a bit dramatic and probably racist.
And no, there is no money, here. This a low-income town.
People act like no murder is a great reason to move to a town but that's really not true.
As I stated in a previous post there are way too many child molesters for such a small population and you will see a LOT of mutated, inbred people.
It's really very sad to look at.
I am moving to Melbourne, Fl where there are currently only 6 registered offenders with a place that is so much bigger than st. Cloud. The people here are victims of slow dna and generations of poor genetics.

We moved to Saint Cloud in Feb of 2012 and love it here. We do not have children it is just the two of us. Things are very quiet in our neighbor hood. We have had no trouble and it feels very safe here. I have had many family members come to visit and also comment on how nice it is. We love being able to go to Kissimme or Orlando when we want and we go to the beach at Melbourne or drive to Cresent Beach to play in the sun and sand. I have had no trouble with the police here. If you don't make trouble, you won't have trouble. We don't speed or run red lights to receive tickets. I don't understand why all the bad comments about Saint Cloud, if people aren't happy here, then why stay?

Rachel, Babygirl You have no idea what your talking about, I've lived in st cloud since 1996, cops will arrest you reguardless if your passing through or not, Cops being cockroaches oh yes they are everywhere, You sound very young, There's money here you just have to know how to earn it, I will agree there are alot of sex affenders here, but there everywhere, as far as inbred, and victims of slow dnaand poor genetics I think not,, Now you can move your happy little ass to melbourne and let the east coast people have you. No loss here in st cloud by you leaving bye bye now .

So many people here know nothing about St.Cloud. I've lived here since July 1981.I was 12 years old. Been a great place to raise a family. Yes progress have been happening for a while, but it does everywhere. 13th st. was 4 lane, no fast food, no Walmart. 1 high school[1/4 size what it is now] 1 middle school, and 2 elementary schools. Most of the side streets were still cobblestone. For all you people who come here and stay, I say welcome. For all you people who come here, don't like it and leave, I say THANK YOU!

I'm glad you guys are ranting and raving about what spanish people and white people do. Well being Black, let me tell you what both of you do. Spanish people in high places only hire spanish people, so God forbid if somebody spanish is a store manager or a property manager, the whole complex will be spanish and the entire business will be run by spanish people when in anything that the entire community particpates in...DIVERSITY is very important. White people always treat minorities like they have to feel their way with them before they can trust them or relax around them and they always put minorities through the third degree in any business or professional situation, when education sometimes should be able to solve any doubts. At the end of the day, white people are the best theives because they don't get watched because they are white, whether they live in St. cloud or not...In nutshell predjudice wastes a lot of time and money. We got a black president and people still try to treat black people like we are not good enough for certain things'.

Driving around Saint Cloud, one can see the changes....
high influx of hispanics, "Lake shore drive" on any weekend, sidewalks, with graffiti on the fences, walls and light poles, more trash on the roads,
much more traffic due to all the new homes built on old lake beds "the next flood zone" (Black Berry Creek),(eagle Creek,etc...)
Putting in 4 lanes on 192 to Melbourne, putting in 4 lanes on Hwy 15 (Narcoossee Road) to Lake Nona,
New Public Food stores one at each end of town,
Lack of open space and cows,,, etc...
Yes Saint Cloud Has Changed.
So goes the Quality of Life!
