Hi Alfred- The people who live here love it for a variety of reasons. First, the convenience of living in central Florida to the Amusement parks, airport, and beaches. Secondly, it is a "City celebrating Small Town Living"- the motto of St. Cloud. We have our own lakefront, with lovely pavillions, and interactive waterpark for the kids, jogging paths and great fishing. A great public library, an Aquatic Center, A historic village, a terrific historic downtown area, lots of shops and restaurant and community activities. In all a great place to raise kids.
