I relocated to Orlando last year for a job in downtown Orlando. I moved to Oveido because it's fairly nice and a bit more reasonably priced. The commute was horrible, I repeat - horrible! 417 to 408, tolls have gone up, mega-construction, ridiculous traffic, non-stop accidents.Then I found Conway with a 10 minute commute across Michigan St. Streets with sidewalks, lined with Oak trees, lots of neighborhoods with community pools and housing costs that you can almost live with. The drawbacks - right under the flight path, final approach, you can wave to the pilots. Crime is creeping in. Another good option if you have kids would be Vista Lakes in southeast Orlando. Nice but still affordable, good access to shopping, still a reasonable commute. Go north to Maitland, Altamonte, Lake Mary or Sanford unless you work downtown. Huge construction project starting on I-4 in 2013 or 2014.
