Kissimmee is the soul of the Central Florida area. Known as the main destination for Orlando’s millions of annual tourists, Kissimmee is easily within reach of Orlando’s many thrills and adventures.
The area was originally known as Allendale and was named after Confederate major JH Allen. The Confederate major operated a successful cargo steamboat operation on the Kissimmee River. In 1883, the city was renamed to Kissimmee after the Native American word “Cacema,” meaning long river. Kissimmee’s river, allowed steamboat operations to thrive creating economic growth in the region. By the early 1890s, major abnormal freezing of the river, along with The Panic of 1893 declined production in the area leading residents of the area to resort to cattle ranching.
Today, Kissimmee has turned into a hot real estate market! Kissimmee offers a variety of homes – single-family, condos, and townhomes, not to mention the resort-style amenities available in many communities! Varying communities may offer amenities such as: water parks, restaurants, and spas. All exclusive to residents.
