    I love living in Arcadia. We are a small little cattletown, and take great pride in our abundance of orange groves. While the roads and schools could use some work, there is no place I would rather live!
    I moved here in July 2015, i totally love it, country wise, outstanding views, the schools are awsome. I came from clearwater, fl and it was a huge change for the kids, since they changed from city kids, to town country kids, at first they hated it, but now they seem to not get enough of this place, great outstanding and peaceful place to live, and raise my kids.
    Some business owners are good with people. A little few don't have good people skills.

    Not much selection of restaurants, but most here have good food quality and service.
