Osceola County Reviews

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.
