Legend has it that Orlando Reeves, a soldier who died in 1835 in the area of the city during a war, was the impetus for the city’s name change from “Jernigan” to “Orlando.” Reeves was acting as a sentinel for a company of soldiers who had set up camp for the night.
Orlando has seen its share of professional football over the years, and is a part of the rich high school football tradition in the state of Florida. It also is a simple drive to other Florida locales such as Tampa (85 miles), Gainesville (111 miles), Jacksonville (141 miles), Miami (233 miles) and Tallahassee (257 miles).
