Kissimmee is a city in central Florida’s Osceola County, just south of Orlando. It’s defined by its proximity to the region’s multitude of amusement parks, including the massive Walt Disney World Resort complex. The city lies along the northwest shore of Lake Tohopekaliga (nicknamed Lake Toho), and its verdant Kissimmee Waterfront Park encompasses walking paths, playgrounds, and a fishing pier.
St. Cloud, a family-oriented city near Orlando, was founded April 16, 1909, as a retirement community for Civil War Union veterans who paid $50 for five-acre lots.
The city now boasts 2.5 miles of beautiful lakefront and an extensive parks program. Historic Downtown St. Cloud attracts visitors and residents alike with its charm and beauty. Located on the south shore of East Lake Tohopekaliga, the city’s original grid pattern is still a primary housing area for the city. This area is bounded on the north by the lake, on the south by 17th Street, Mississippi Avenue on the east and Columbia Avenue on the west.
