St. Cloud, FL - Fun, Sun, the Best City to Live

I just recently moved to St. Cloud, FL; and I love it here. Although it gets confused with Kissimmee and Orlando, St. Cloud is more homey and a great suburban area to raise a family. My family and I have been here for a year and love the fact that we can enjoy the calmness of our community; and not deal with the hustle and bustle of Orlando and Kissimmee from the theme parks and vacationers. Another great feature is that if needed, we have easy access to the major airport.

Some of the neat things for family to get into include the Reptile World Serpentarium and the historical side of St. Cloud. My family and I often go through the Main Street area and reminisce of the olden days. Main Street is like going back in time, it is a great way to encourage your children to learn more about history. Another great feature of the city is its location, the East Lake Tohopekaliga is great for a family outing.

The unique stores are great for Saturday morning shopping. If you are into antiquing, St. Cloud has a lot to offer. Besides shopping and the exciting things to do in St. Cloud; I have really enjoyed going out to eat with my family. There are so many different types of delicacies to choose from, your stomach and head will spin. We really love eating at Crabby Bills; you have a great view, sometimes entertainment, and great food. Everyone should get a chance to enjoy this wonderful city.
