Beautiful Seminole County, Florida is home to a plethora of blossoming new industries and several growing towns with plenty to offer.
Established in 1913, Seminole County focused on the growth of celery farms and eventually real estate as the century progressed. However, like much of the country during the 1920s and 30s, the county was affected by the Great Depression. During WWII, Seminole County became home to the Sanford Naval Base, McCoy Air Force Base, and the county’s major airports were established as well: Orlando International Airport and Orlando Sanford Airport.
Seminole County is centrally located in Florida and offers multiple ways to enjoy the outdoor beauty that Florida has to offer, including conveniently quick trips to several beaches, lakes and rivers to kayak and canoe through, natural springs to explore, and a variety of nature trails and hikes to enjoy. The Seminole County Natural Lands page offers a full list of outdoor options available to the public.
Once part of the thriving Orange County, Florida, Seminole County is comprised of several cities with different appeals to each one:
- Altamonte Springs
- Lake Mary
- Winter Springs
