How could you not want to visit a city called Kissimmee? When you come down to Florida, not only can you easily get to Orlando for Disney and Universal while staying in our smaller and much less tourist-packed city—there’s also plenty to do right here in Kissimmee!
People who like the outdoors will love Kissimmee. We’re just below Orlando, so we’re pretty far south, which means we have amazing weather all year round, and there are tons of outdoor attractions. Kissimmee is located right on Lake Tohopekaliga, and the Lakefront Park is a fantastic place to go and picnic or take your boat out onto the water. You can go kayaking, jetskiing, ziplining—there’s no shortage of amazing things to do in Kissimmee.
There are also several wildlife tours and boat tours to get a well-rounded experience of the city and see all kinds of interesting flora and fauna, and there are even extreme tours in helicopters and hot air balloons. You can’t get the same experience anywhere else!
But you don’t have to love the outdoors to enjoy Kissimmee. If you’re traveling with kids, take them to Fun Spot America for hands-on and family-friendly activities, or head over to the Museum of Military History or the Osceola History Museum for a great education on local history and culture. See one of the various dinner theaters around the city. There are plenty of spots dedicated to the history of local Native American tribes as well and the military, so history buffs are sure to love it.
Kissimmee also has great bars and restaurants with all kinds of delicious food. Don’t pass up Kissimmee on your next trip south! And while you are visiting Kissimmee, be sure to stop by and see us at Sun State Ford! We would love to hear about your favorite things of Kissimmee, FL and of course our hometown of Orlando!
