How safe do you feel while you are here on vacation

I am planning my next trip to a destination in Spain that has way too many discussions on pickpockets and scam artists targeting tourists.....and the local police basically doing nothing about it, which is making me think of other destinations.....since there are so many repeat visitors, I have to assume you feel comfortable with your surroundings in Orlando and the rest of the Sunshine State, so how do your feel, are we making you feel safe and secure?......:)

I feel as safe in Orlando (probably safer) than in many UK towns. You just take normal precautions and have to be aware of what is happenning around you.

I feel pretty safe in Florida and especially the Orlando area but I am also careful in dark parking lots,hotel elevators,the usual places. Just keep your eyes open and if you feel unsafe,ask the store/hotel for an escort. Don't carry a lot of cash and although being at Disney tends to make people friendly and talkative-watch how much personal information you share with strangers.

Thanks for the feedback on BCN, still plan on making the trip, haven't been to that part of Spain yet. Glad to hear you feel relatively safe while in Florida, and the only place to take extra precautions in my opinion, is Miami, the driving is scary enough, let alone the unusual cast of characters roaming the streets......and agree with the Rio comment, had such an awful time, I didn't even include it on my TA trip map (just want to forget the whole thing)....they truly dislike Americans........:)

Bubba may i give you an idea:

why dont you go the costa durada and stay at maybe salou or even a town called "Tarragona" which is just south of BCN now in tarragona you will see the locals at the festival of "Castells" where there are teams who compete tomake the highest possible human tower, this is absolutely amazing to see and be part of the atmosphere, and in salou there are all sorts of trips to BCN, camp nou etc etc etc and at least you will be more safe that way ;-)

Cheers ;-) wullie
