Kissimmee

Kissimmee – This area was originally named Allendale, after Confederate Major J. H. Allen who operated the first cargo steamboat along the Kissimmee River – the Mary Belle. It was renamed Kissimmee when incorporated as a city in 1883. The etymology of the name Kissimmee is debated, apart from general agreement that it is Native American in origin.

On the northern shore of Lake Tohopekaliga (Lake Toho) a perfect place to spend of an early morning just wandering the endless paths and trails that abound around the lake and historic part of the city.
