- The Tourist Attractions are Attractive
While tourist attractions are far from all Orlando has to offer, they are a huge part of the local economy and make the Orlando area the most visited part of the United States. With nearly 60 million visitors every year the city is without a doubt the largest destination in the country, if not the world.
- American Beauty
Whenever one thinks of the American dream, there is no more fitting image than that of Orlando. With scenic views and amazing weather year-round, makes Orlando one of the most desirable places to live in the US.
The idyllic Harry P. Leu Gardens, and the scenic Lake Eola Park are just two examples of the vast natural beauty that is found in the Orlando area.
- Growing Industry
The burgeoning tech and financial industries are yet another reason Orlando is such an attractive location. Deloitte Consulting, Paylocity, SMRxT, and the International Consortium for Advanced Manufacturing Research seem to think so.
Orlando also has one of the largest Tech MeetUp communities in the country, and a strong talent pipeline with the University of Central Florida (the nation’s second largest university), Valencia College (the nation’s top community college) and more. The region’s top-notch schools produce more than 4,200 graduates with tech degrees each year.
- More than a tourist attraction.
While the tourism industry is the bedrock Orlando’s economy, and the Disney and Universal Studios parks are indeed a major attraction, there is much more to Orlando than family entertainment. There is an entire city full of culture, somewhere most visitors never experience outside the walls of the Magic Kingdom. There is the Orlando Museum of Art, the Orlando Science Museum, the Orlando Ballet, and the historic Enzian Theater, as just a few examples of the city’s thriving cultural scene.
- The Real Estate Market
According to realtor.com, the Orlando Metro area ranks No. 7. On the list of most promising real estate markets in the country for 2017. While Orlando is not perfect, the pros outweigh the cons, and these are a few facts to consider when deciding to move to this magical place.
