Arcadia - Outdoor Wednesday


Arcadia is a city in DeSoto County, Florida, United States. It is just beautiful town.
I felt I was in a magical city, like a dream, everything I saw was like a typical American movie.
There are a lot of antiques fairs, with wonderful pieces. On October 27, 2009, President Barack Obama visited Arcadia, He became the first sitting president to do so. The city was devastated by Hurricane Charley on Friday, August 13, 2004.
The Rev. James Hendry named the town in honor of Arcadia Albritton, a daughter of pioneer settlers who baked him a cake for his birthday. He appreciated it so much he named the city after her.



Arcadia es una ciudad en el condado de DeSoto, Florida, Estados Unidos.
Es una hermosa ciudad.
Yo sentí que estaba en una ciudad mágica, como un sueño, todo lo que veía era como una típica película Norteamericana.

Hay muchas ferias de antigüedades, con piezas maravillosas.
El 27 de octubre de 2009, el Presidente Barack Obama visitó Arcadia, se convirtió en el primer presidente que lo hizo. La ciudad fue devastada por el huracán Charley el Viernes, 13 de agosto 2004.
El reverendo James Hendry nombro a la ciudad en honor de Arcadia Albritton, una hija de colonos pioneros que le hizo una torta para su cumpleaños. El valoro mucho esta atención y nombró a la ciudad en honor a ella.
