a quiet farming town in 1970, now has more visitors than any other place
in the state. The reason, of course, is Walt
Disney World, which, along with Universal
Studios Escape, Sea

along Hwy-192, fifteen miles south, or International Drive, five miles
southwest. Despite enormous expansion over the last decade, the town
itself remains free of the commercialism that surrounds it.
