Osceola County FL Real Estate
Traveling through Osceola County is a journey back in time to the Caloosa Indians' "land of long waters." Unspoiled prairie lands, sandy ridges, many lakes and very few towns still characterize more than 90 percent of the county and offer outstanding fishing, hunting and water sports. Cattle ranches and citrus groves represent the prime industries in this vast, wonderfully scenic region. Osceola County is a natural domain for Florida's true cowboys!
The northernmost part of the county provides quite a contrast! Florida's major tourist attractions are clustered in south Orange County, just across Osceola County's northern border, bringing tremendous growth to Kissimmee and St. Cloud. Tourism has become a major factor, and now banking and light industry are making their marks. Many planned communities, complete with their own business districts, schools, health care and recreational facilities, are quickly making their appearance.
The Houston Astros conduct their spring training in this area of Central Florida. Osceola County's own contributions to the Attractions are Splendid China, A World of Orchids, and the exciting Silver Spurs Rodeo, Florida's oldest professional rodeo.
