Ocoee is a city located in Orange County, Florida, just to the northwest of Orlando. Ocoee was settled in the mid-1850s by a group of men suffering from malaria, who were hoping that the clean waters of Starke Lake would restore their health and prevent future outbreaks. With sunny weather and a location just 12 miles west of Orlando, Ocoee is a great base from which to enjoy both the natural beauty and recreational fun of Orange County.
Touch down at Orlando International Airport and you`ll find yourself just 25 miles southeast of Ocoee. To get to hotels in Ocoee from the airport, take Bus 11 from the airport to the LYNX Central Station, then switch to Line 105 to reach the town center. Alternatively, take a taxi or rent a vehicle from one of the on-site agencies, located on the Ground Transportation level of Terminals A and B.
After you`ve checked into one of the Ocoee hotels, go visit the Withers-Maguire House, a beautiful Southern Gothic Stick Style home dating from 1888 and listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places. Later, jump back in one of the available Ocoee rental cars and head over to Lake Apopka, one of the state`s largest bodies of water, to hike or bike the Loop Trail or enjoy other recreational activities. If this whets your appetite for the great outdoors, walk, run, or bike along the 22-mile West Orange Trail to enjoy the lovely scenery and a little fresh air.
