Real estate site Movoto has compiled the top 10 most exciting cities in the state of Florida and Orlando landed at No. 5. To determine this ranking Movoto considered the following:
Coming in at No. 1 on the list was, no big surprise, Miami Beach. Movoto cited the city's bumpin' nightlife, as well as its arts and live music venues as some of the leading factors to the beach city's win. Following closely behind Miami Beach were Ft. Lauderdale, Miami and Sarasota.
Orlando grabbed the No. 5 spot on the merits of our theme parks and the 50 million visitors per year they bring to the City Beautiful. We also landed in the top five for our arts & entertainment scene, nightlife and the age of our population. Orlando would have higher on the overall list if it weren't for our fast food rank (76). Damn you chain restaurants! But, hey, it gives us something to work towards.
