Davenport

Davenport is a city in Polk County, Florida. As of 2010 the population recorded by the U.S. Census Bureau is 2888, which has increased 18.66% since the bureau of 2000. While the city of Davenport itself is very small, the area north of the city close to Interstate 4 and US 27 is experiencing explosive growth, due mainly in part to the continued growth of the areas worldwide tourist attractions and easy accessibility to all parts of Florida.

The first white settlement in the area now known as Davenport was in January 1839 when the U.S. military set up Fort Cummings as a place to negotiate with the Seminoles to end the second Seminole War. In spite of their efforts, the fort only lasted a few years.

The area around Davenport in northeast Polk County used to be centered around the remote Circus World amusement park. It was redeveloped in 1987 into Boardwalk and Baseball and included a minor league baseball park that would attract spring training and minor league baseball teams for the Kansas City Royals, earning the area the moniker “Baseball City”. The amusement park failed in 1990, and the Royals left for Arizona and the Cactus League in 2003. The Baseball City name is extinct, and the area around the stadium (which was demolished in 2005) has been redeveloped into Posner Park, a large outdoor shopping center.

With its location immediately adjacent to the Walt Disney World resort, it could be renamed as the “Vacation Villa” capital of the world due to it’s unprecedented growth since 2000. Walt Disney World Resort is the world’s largest and most-visited recreational resort with 16,972,000 guests being recorded for 2010. The resort covers an area of 30,080-acre or 47 square miles and includes four theme parks, two water parks, 23 on-site themed resort hotels (excluding eight that are on-site, but not owned by the Walt Disney Company), including a campground, two health spas and physical fitness centers, and other recreational venues and entertainment. It opened on October 1, 1971 with only the Magic Kingdom theme park and has since added Epcot (October 1, 1982), Disney’s Hollywood Studios (May 1, 1989) and Disney’s Animal Kingdom (April 22, 1998).
