The City of Arcadia is the county seat for DeSoto County. It is centrally located between Orlando, Ft. Myers; Sarasota and Lake Okeechobee at the crossroads of US 17 and State Route 70.

Originally a frontier gateway to Southwest Florida, Arcadia has survived turbulent wars, disastrous fires, and boom town expansion. The area has preserved its 19th century architecture and Old Florida charm from early colonial settlements along The Peace River Valley. The Peace River provides a number of scenic walks and canoe trips for those who can appreciate rushing rapids and complacently clear ponds. Arcadia is located in DeSoto County and has an approximate population of 7,621 (2012).

The median household income $25,025, and the median income for a family was $29,593
