Finding New Ways to Grow

City of Kissimmee, FL

The City of Kissimmee is Osceola County’s crown jewel and county seat, and, while this is one of Central Florida’s favorite tourist destinations, there is much more to this well-organized city than first meets the eye. From being the first city in Florida to run all of its City-owned facilities on solar power, to being home to one of Florida’s most remarkable airports, the City of Kissimmee means business.

Welcome to the Family

City of Auburn, AL

A walk down Auburn’s main thoroughfare is a nostalgic stroll back in time, to when families stopped at the corner drugstore’s soda fountain and neighbors knew each other’s names. Today, locals still enjoy camaraderie and cold drinks at Toomer’s Drugs, which set up shop on the corner of Magnolia Avenue in 1896. Located across the street from Auburn University, the beloved landmark is also a favorite with students, who are welcomed as part of the community during the school year. It is this mix of small-town charm, southern hospitality, and student culture that creates a thriving local scene for both young and old to enjoy.
