Orlando, Florida

Orlando, Florida is a popular international tourist destination, attracting over 51 million visitors per year. City officials and local legend believe the name Orlando originated from a soldier named Orlando Reeves who died in 1835. There are many conflicting stories, however, as in-depth reviews of military records in the 1970s and 1980s turned up no record of Orlando Reeves ever existing. The legend grew throughout the early 1900s; particularly with local historian Kena Fries' retelling in various writings and on local radio station WDBO in 1929, but the tale is still highly debated even to this day.
