I love the variety of cultures in Osceola County. The guvernamental services are excellent. You don't have to wait. The green areas are well maintained and the roads are well maintained. Neighborhoods are safe. There are many activities for families including all ages. The people are very friendly and always willing to help. My kids like to go to different varieties of parks. There are a variety of shops, restaurants. There's a lot of good hospitals. My husband was a soldier for 12 years and we decided to retire in Osceola County. It was the best choice. We didn't need anything. It is a great place to raise your children and provide you with a good education. I don't change Osceola County for nothing. There are so many things to do and it doesn't give you time to get bored. I love the activities the community offers. I've got Disney and Universal and the Outlets nearby. I always have family and friends to visit. The cost of living is a very good one. I recommend Osceola County!!!!!
I'm currently a resident and go to school in this area. I really like the community because it's family friendly and very diverse which allows me to broaden my perspectives with another culture. Living here for a year made me see that it is a safe place to live, start your own family and business as it is continuously being developed. Osceola is a great place to live, though commercialized, it's not as crowded and traffic as Orlando, and you can still enjoy the beauty and peaceful ambiance of leisure parks. Not to mention, the people in the community are very friendly, warm and helpful whenever you need. Overall, I recommend Osceola for those starting out in Florida.
