A majority of people who live in Orange County live in Orlando and contrary to popular opinion OC is NOT a crime infested rathole.
Orange County residents who dont live in Orlando live in places like Winter Park, Maitland, Eatonville, Apopka, Ocoee, Winter Garden, Windermere, Belle Isle, or Christmas.
The rich can be found in Winter Park, Maitland, Windermere and Belle Isle.
The poor can usually be found all over Orange County (they all ride the Lynx bus all day cause they have nothing better to do)
Also home to some of the coolest people you will ever meet, extremely diverse and not segregated
And unlike Orange County, CA it is cheap to live here. Plus traffic isnt nearly as bad. We're also way better then our southern neighbor Osceola County which is full of inbred rednecks and wannabe gangster puerto ricans.
We have an endless amount of things to do besides theme parks (Awesome malls, downtown nightclubs, art museums, theater, the Orlando Magic)
Most of Orange County's shrinking white population live in Winter Park, Hunters Creek, Dr Phillips, or Windermere, any rich neighborhood in Orange County is mostly white.
Pine Hills, Parramore, Washington Shores, Rosemont, and Oak Ridge are all crime infested.
I-4 is not as bad as people say, though it can be when there is a car accident.
We also have one of the best school districts in the state of Florida
The only downside to Orange County, Florida is all the tolls on the other expressways.
Husband: And live with those inbred hicks and spics? No way, I'd rather live in Orange County.
Wife: Good point honey, Orange County it is.
the oc with typical streets, houses, and mountains right next to it
Also, the best Mexican food in California can be found in Santa Ana. And the best Vietnamese food outside of Vietnam can be found in Little Saigon of Westminster.
"For the same reason I can't get decent Mexican in NYC!", says proud Orange Countian.
There are places like Coto de Caza where the annoying CEOs live, but a majority of people living in Orange County don't have that much money..it all goes to their rent or mortgage, so even if they have a higher level job, once they pay the bills there isn't much left (an example of which I can attest wholeheartedly to).
Orange County is a bubble, once you look past the gangs in both counties, as a great deal of it is master-planned and gives you the feeling of never stepping into reality.
North person: ..No. How can it be ghetto when it still costs so much to live here? What, is it 'the ghetto life of a car designer'?
South person: I don't think so. South county isn't just comrpised of the used-to-be-artsy, now-super-expensive Laguna Beach or Coto de Caza. There are other communities with people who go paycheck to paycheck because of the cost of rent.
Annoying idiot: OH WHATEVER. You're just bitter because you don't live in Newport with Ryan and Marissa!
me: Orange county?
Idaho: I went there a few years ago. It's beautiful.
Me:Yeah, you'll have to come down again so you can join our beach bon fire. It's great.
