Kissimmee: the heart of Florida
There is no other vacation place quite like it. A charming, distinctive area that’s part of one of the world’s most popular vacation destinations and just south of Orlando, Kissimmee deserves your exploration.
Kissimmee puts within easy reach all different types of activities and attractions — a rich treasure chest of fun and excitement that creates endless possibilities to make vacation memories.
A day that starts in Kissimmee can become anything you want it to be. The area’s authentic small-town charm evolves into theme park thrills, outdoor travel adventures, challenging golf, tranquil beach landscapes, and any other vacation escape you dream of. It’s all right here and it’s all waiting for you. Kissimmee … the heart of Florida.
Before theme parks, Kissimmee’s thrills came naturally in pine forests and wetlands. Explore the wilds on an airboat tour, zip-line safari or horseback ride.
Pick a guide or pier to fish for bass on Kissimmee’s rich waters, known as the Chain of Lakes.
Golf, or learn how, at one of Kissimmee’s courses or academies.
Board a classic biplane or hot air balloon to combine the area’s natural and manmade amusements in one spectacular view.
In historic downtown Kissimmee, walk through galleries and an outdoor sculpture display; join a walking tour; and browse shops. Grab lunch and an ice cream cone before heading to Lakefront Park to view Lake Toho, the headwaters of Florida’s Everglades.
Reserve a Friday or Saturday night for Old Town, when bands provide a rocking soundtrack for classic car cruises. Seven days a week, you can ride go-karts, a Ferris wheel and merry-go-round, as well as shop and eat.
