Well known for its many attractions, such as Walt Disney World, SeaWorld, and Universal Orlando Resort, Orange County Florida is a popular tourist destination as well as one of the fastest growing counties in the nation. Orange County may owe much of its success to its excellent decision to change its name. When Florida was originally founded, Orange County was known as Mosquito County. Not being the most desirable name for a county, Orange County decided to take up a new moniker. The area was well known for the production of Oranges, something the entire state is famous for, and the new name stuck.
