Apopka is a place where a family may choose to settle down simply because of the stability found in this area. It is filled with people of the working class American society and allows for children to grow up in an area unlike the city of Orlando where crime rates are high and tourists run the show. Apopka is also a place near to the always-advancing University of Central Florida as well as Valencia College which has allowed for many students to obtain the opportunity to gain access to the education found between the walls of the University of Central Florida. Though the city has its defects including its rising crime rates and overflow of undocumented citizens, Apopka is a beautiful place to buy fresh foods, mingle between the diverse races among its population and seek and find the amazing opportunities awaiting those who seek a higher education and lifestyle.
This is my hometown. Now that I'm in college and able to reflect back on my history with this city, I can honestly say that it's a great place to live, especially for a family. There are quality schools which have many wonderful teachers and different activities to do around Apopka. Although it can get a bit boring sometimes, the small town vibe is nice because you are really connected with the people and places here. At the same time, it's big enough that there are always opportunities to meet new people and explore new places.
Apopka is a small town just north of Orlando. They have a variety of good quality restaurants, biking trails, lakes, and rivers. If you are not into the busy nightlife then Apopka may be the city to raise your family!
