Beautiful, very nice scenery. Lots of lakes and trees and flowers. There are no sidewalks, however, which kind of sucks; also, in order to utilize the neighborhood pool and gym you have to be a "member", which is hella expensive. Very nice 4th of July celebration. Family friendly.

Where I currently live really I amazing overall because of the several benefits of living in this neighborhood. I get to ride a shuttle to school that reduces the amount of gas that I have to use on the daily bases as well as I get to meet all new people. The environment is very peaceful with almost no disruption, for the most part it its really nice in Orlando and I would definitely choose to live here again. This city is full of life and opportunity in which I know I will take advantage of. Compared to this rest of the country I guess it would be seen as an okay city to live in, some might not like it because of how much traffic there is but for me personally, I enjoy living here mainly because it is a lifestyle in which I am very used to and familiar with.
The crime and safety in this area is very low in my opinion and causes very little disturbance in the society. Even though we had some very bad and incidental crimes occur in the city I can still sense and feel that this is a good city in which the police is doing there best to protect. Like any other city the crime rate is not perfect but with the help of the police and Orlando community stating united and strong together, I feel like this can be reduced and if not then we will make sure to stand together and support our society as best as we can.
