Living in Orlando:

When travelers say they're going to Orlando, the question is, "Which one?" There's downtown Orlando, the seat of Orange County government and a center for nightclubs, restaurants, concerts and post-game celebrations. There's residential Orlando, which developed during the 1920s' "City Beautiful" movement to 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 welcomes about 68 million travelers each year, making it one of the most popular vacation destinations in America

But when you get right down to it, every facet of Orlando combines to create one of Florida's most appealing areas for business, living and recreation. For many residents, the theme parks are a point of pride. When you tell someone you're from Orlando, chances are you'll hear all about that person's vacation to the area – even if it was 40 years ago. The theme parks' special pricing for local residents along with the widespread employment that the parks offer have largely endeared them to the community
