    Orlando This Weekend

    We're going to be attending some free concerts in downtown Orlando this Saturday. I've never been to downtown Orlando so I need some input as to what to expect. The concerts are outdoors near City Hall and will probably be over around 10PM.

    What's downtown Orlando like at night? Can I carry at the concert? Is there security?

    I appreciate any input.

    Can't speak for the security at the concert, but there are many places in downtown Orlando that I would not get caught in at night without a sidearm, and it can go from "good" neighborhood to "bad" pretty quick.

    Anywhere.......

    around 'downtown' Orlando is risky in my humblest opinion, day or night. I do not know about security, but the concerts are outside, correct? I would not be without my carry, were I to attend. Just walking to and from the concert area will be a risk. The local hoodlums will certainly be around. Orlando has a notoriously high murder rate. Sure, it is mostly dope related in the 'hood', but downtown Orlando is definitely the 'hood'. Many homeless persons are in the area as well. Good luck, keep those senses sharp!

    I would definitely be armed if I were going. I am a college student at UCF and never go to the downtown clubs because downtown is too dangerous at night (or during the day for that matter). As far as at the concert, if you decided to carry, be aware of people trying to pick pocket you and accidently grabbing you firearm.

    Orlando is a 'two extra mag town'...when I go there, I have my Glock and extra mag...plus two extra mags!

    WOW

    These descriptions of Orlando make me feel extremely safe about living in the Detroit area.

    but, seriously, check out the Orlando murder rate for the last few years. And then, figure 'per capita', and you will see a city on par with most of urban inner city America these days. Sad........

    Wow. Makes me wonder if going to see Creedence Clearwater play in Orlando is going to be a wild adventure.

    Hard to do. Tom Fogerty died almost 20 years ago and John Fogerty thinks he's a country singer now.

    I'll tell you how bad Orlando is. My far-left liberal, Obama supporting, anti-gun, anti-capitalism, anti-everything ex-wife lives not far from downtown and told me the other day she bought a handgun and has applied for her CHL!

    Orlando is a nice place to visit, but there are some real bad areas that border the real nice ones. I'd carry, but in the concert I don't know if this falls under the same heading as a public sporting event would where by state law you cannot carry.

    Downtown orlando has degraded greatly the past years. Used to never be as bad as it is these days.

    Greetings. I have been "browsing" this site for sometime now, just joined tonight and have to agree with the others about Orlando. We are 35 miles away at the coast and there is nowhere in Orlando proper that I would go without my EMP and multiple mags. The area around downtown, especially the Bob Carr Ampitheater and other venues borders the Paramore district. Per captia I believe they have the highest crime numbers in the state.
    Our last event in that area finished up a little after ten and the thugs were out in force in the parking lot. My wife and I were both armed with non-lethal due to the venue but very aware and "on."
    The concert will be well worth the effort, but stay aware.
