ABOUT ORLANDO

Living in America’s most popular tourist destination has its perks, but there’s a lot more to Orlando than theme parks and thrill rides. From our dynamic downtown to our eclectic neighborhoods and wide-open nature reserves, Orlando offers more reasons to explore than you can imagine. And with 236 days of signature sunshine to enjoy, Orlando creates a perfect environment to live, work and explore.

Live

Make yourself at home in one of Orlando’s many neighborhoods. The Orlando region is rich in history and character, and living here means seeing your money go significantly further than it would elsewhere. Orlando has more reasons to explore than you might think, from our vibrant downtown to our unique neighborhoods and wide-open nature reserves. Orlando has been dubbed one of “the next great boom cities in the United States” by Forbes magazine. The city itself has a population of over 280,000 people, while the metropolitan area has a population of around 2.5 million.

Work

There’s a whole side of Orlando that most people don’t know about. It’s much more than a worldwide tourist attraction. Life sciences, medical innovation, as well as the creative, technology, and hospitality industries, are all centered in the city. Plus, the region has the country’s fastest-growing job market and population, outperforming other fast-growing metros such as Dallas, Atlanta, and Austin and propelling innovation forward. From its beginnings as a university town created to win the space race, Orlando has remained at the forefront of new technological developments, ushering in a bright future not only for the region and its citizens, but for the entire world.
