People who live in Oak Ridge really don't live here; they live in Orlando. Pssst... don't tell anyone! Because Orlando is just 20 miles away, much of life in Oak Ridge revolves around tourism. The city is home to countless theme parks, restaurants, attractions, hotels and more. The population here is young and just starting out, so once you make your billions, you'll want to look somewhere else for a new home. Still it'll be fun while it lasts.
To live here, you have to have a car. The only really dependable way to get yourself into Orlando is to drive, and it'll also come in handy to take advantage of everything your area has to offer. You can get to other parts of the world and the country via Orlando's huge international airport or its smaller regional one. But to get there, you'll want to be able to drive.
If you're an outdoors or golf lover, Oak Ridge could also be a good place for you to call home. The area has tons of lakes and lagoons around, so you can fish, swim, boa or more. Orlando has some of the best golf courses in the country, so its a great place to learn to play or go out for a round of golf.
