He doesn't like SF, either?

This is a bafflingly obtuse remark.

I can't think of anything that interesting to see in a whole lot of places, but that doesn't mean they don't exist, it means I don't know about them.

Unless you can say you know a place well, from having lived there or visited frequently and for long periods of time, blanket statements are meaningless.

Interesting is relative though. For example, there are plenty of interesting things here in Buffalo but if I didn't live here I wouldn't make a special trip just to visit.

But no one's talking about making a special trip to Buffalo. The OP--long gone, of course--was asking about making the best of an affordable warm weather getaway in Orlando, one of the most touristed cities in the world.

Lol. No. He’s here to tell us it’s cold, expensive, dirty and full of shifty vagrants.

Just my opinion, dont get your head in a knot. I spend enough time business wise travelling in the area, not saying its horrible, just saying that its not that special, at least to me, doesnt mean there's nothing there, but that I havent found it, or my interests are different.

They seemed to be interested from an ADULT point of view. If you have children then obviously this is a major destination point, but as an adult I'm not so interested as compared to other nearby destinations.

And as for marvelous mouse, as someone who travels all over the US, yes I think SF is dirty with vagrants all over the place begging for money. I always stayed at the CLIFT and even there you cant cross the street without panhandlers yelling at you, spitting, whatever....SF has gone downhill over the years and I'm not fond of it anymore. You dont see that stuff in NY, TO, MIA or any other comparable city to the extend you do in SF. LA is bad too, terrible whats happened over the years. Obviously you dont travel there and dont know it at all if you dispute this. Don't know why its gotten so bad, but its bad enough I just pass on it now and stay in NAPA.

I don’t know why I’m bothering...slow day at work maybe...but yes, I’ve been. Not significantly worse than LA, Seattle, or Portland. Or not even much worse than where I live. I’ve rarely had a vagrant yell or spit at me; maybe they’re just drawn to your wonderful personality. Passing up on SF or LA because of the panhandlers is like passing up on Italy because of pickpockets. Missing the forest for the trees, man.
