Greater Orlando: all about Greater Orlando

The Greater Orlando Area

Orlando, the city where magic happens, where dreams come true. For many, it is this enchantment with the land of Mickey that brings the desire to own a home in Orlando and to be able to live near the beloved parks. What many people don't know is that geographically Orlando is a very small portion of what they actually believe it to be.

Orlando is the county seat of Orange County and was incorporated into the state of Florida in 1875. The most remarkable fact for its development was, without a doubt, the construction of Walt Disney World, which boosted the growth of the surrounding cities. It was this great economic leap that made it soon become an important metropolitan area in Florida.

The famous Greater Orlando (translation: Greater Orlando) is an area that encompasses many other cities near the center of Orlando's development. Cities such as Kissimmee, Winter Garden, and Windermere are among the best known.

Although Orlando is known as the land of theme parks, only Universal Studios is located within the city. Some of the major outlet stores, Disney Parks and Sea World have their properties within Lake Buena Vista. The International Airport and International Drive are also part of the city.

Those looking to live within Orlando can choose the neighborhoods of Dr. Phillips, Lake Nona, Hunter`s Creek. These are very well-regarded places with excellent housing options. The others are part of the metropolitan area and very important for the economic and cultural development of the city.


Metro Orlando Region

Greater Orlando is the third largest metropolitan area in Florida and the twenty-second largest in the United States. The following counties are part of Greater Orlando: Lake, Orange, Osceola, and Seminole. In 2019, it was estimated that its population is around 2.6 million.

Metropolitan regions are defined as having a high population and economic density. They can include several urban areas, satellite towns, and even rural areas, but which are somehow connected to the central urban part. In this case, the cities share industries, infrastructure, and housing.

What makes a region such is the fact that all the cities have a certain integration between them, be it economically, culturally, politically, or even as a community. The Greater Orlando area is very well structured for this. Even the more rural areas such as Oviedo and Occoee also play a very important role in the region's growth.
