The center of Ocoee Florida is located about 9.6 miles West-Northwest of downtown Orlando. Starke Lake is very near the center of the city. Commuting both to and from Ocoee to just about anywhere is fairly easy. Going east or west I usually will take W Colonial Dr. if I have to pick up anything before I get where I am going. There is no shortage of shops and stores etc. on West Colonial. If you are in Northern Ocoee you will be taking the 438 also known as Silver Star Rd. Going north and south will be the Daniel Webster if you are on the west side or I take South Apopka Vineland Rd if I am on the eastern side traveling north or south.
Ocoee is named by its' founder Bluford Sims . He named it after his favorite River in Tennessee. The name itself is a Cherokee Indian word meaning "Apricot Vine Place". The city was founded in the early 1880's and the primary industry was, you guessed it oranges. The Florida Midland Railroad was available to give the industry a boost when it came into the area in the late 1880's. At this point Ocoee was selling trees to farmers both in the local area and all of the way into California. This was all well before Dr. Phillips made his contributions. It was 1959 when State Road 50 connected Ocoee to the then booming city of Orlando.

Modern Ocoee is about to get even more modern. The city's master plan calls for a massive renovation of the Downtown Ocoee area. Not that the area really needs it. I like it already. However when I see what Horizons West has stirred up in Windermere and Winter Garden Florida I can see why the city would want to move forward.
