I was born and raised in Orlando, and I love my city! However, there are a few changes that can be made to make the city even better as whole. Public schools must change drastically in Orlando, to better equipped our youth for their future. We need more teachers who are genuinely interested in helping children exceed. We are also need more public transportation around the city. More bus stops, more Sun rail stations, and even cheaper taxi services that can be trusted. Uber is great, but sometimes don’t feel safe. Other than that, I love Orlando and living here.
Review Orlando
A city of glittery lights, fun noise, excitement prepared for every visitor, my city is a 5 star welcome station for all the world and I love it. We have Universal and Disney, adventures and music everywhere you go. We have Sea World and Animal Kingdom too, don't forget Adventure Cove as well! Then there's the Orlando Museum of Science and Art, 2 buildings, 4 floors, games, mind teasers, star gazing, I implore you must try! Ripley's Believe It Or Not is fantastic right next to the movie theater and many great restaurants! There's Lake Eola Farmers Market every Sunday with Yoga at 8 and 11am. There's the Stadium, Citrus Bowl and Concerts every week! The best restaurants with the most rare spices all here for everyone to share. I never get tired of my town, it's impossible when the possibilities are endless.
Orlando is my home. I've lived here 12 years now, and despite it's ever present issues and annoyances, it's still a place I cherish. I love that there's always something to do in Orlando. A new restaurant, a new records shop, and even if it's not new to you perhaps, it's still new adventure because there's always something to discover here. Not only that, but it's so diverse. There are speakeasy's downtown, as well as an Indie bar, even a Christmas themed bar! Having the theme parks practically at your doorstep also offers year-round fun for adults and children.
