The city of Ocoee is very beautiful. Being that it is located in Florida, there are a lot of local amenities in the area. Ocoee is not far from local malls, restaurants and the famous theme parks. You are only 20 minutes away from the happiest place on earth, Disney World! The neighborhood is quiet and reserved and I feel very safe residing here.

It's not too big of a city but also not too small. There are plenty of parks and restaurants of all kinds, and it's also a pretty diverse place. Once you've lived in Ocoee long enough then you start to get familiar with everyone else who lives there because no one really moves out or in. We have some great celebrations for the holidays where the whole city decorates and sometimes there may even some fair rides and music for everyone to enjoy. I've lived here almost my whole life and I've never had any kind of problems that made me want to move.
Ocoee is the quaint sister city to Orlando. It's the closest experience to Florida life without the high activity of tourism. Ocoee is a great place to live with an excellent housing market; subdivisions are being constructed usually every two years or so. Ocoee has superb educational programs, public schools, and private schools that can appeal to anyone.
