While it may be well-known for the popular attraction, Disney World, Orlando stays busy with conferences, conventions, and everyday opportunities for residents who prefer it warm year-round. Neighborhoods in this city range in temperament from Lawsona with its active nightlife to the quiet community of Lake Mary. There are plenty of Orlando apartments in Oveido, near Central Florida University, or put down roots in Winter Park, known for its all-inclusive appeal.
