Orlando is the sixth largest city of Florida and is also known to be its largest inland city. History shows that Orlando got its name in around 1836 after the death of a soldier named Orlando Reeves who died in this area during a war against the Seminole Indian tribe. This city is said to welcome around 52 million tourists every year and hence is also the second largest city in Florida for the number of hotel rooms. Orlando is located in the citrus fruit and farm area and was settled near Fort Gatlin during the Seminole war.
