When most of us consider Florida as a destination location, we automatically consider Disney to be on the top of the list. However, Kissimmee offers the best of both – you’re within good proximity of Disney if you want to visit there – there are plenty of things to see and do without going to Disney!
Where to visit
Old Town offers a themed entertainment park for everyone who visits Kissimmee. Here you’ll find things like car shows, a 1437 foot roller coaster, a 60 foot Ferris wheel and a go cart track. If you’ve got little ones with you they will be delighted with the “Fun Town” area where they’ll find merry go rounds, tea cup rights, and kiddy sized roller coasters. Old Town also offers a variety of restaurants – whether you’re looking for a family style restaurant or something a little more exotic you’ll find something here for you. They even offer a night time singing and dancing nightspot at the Blue Max Tavern or Sun on the Beach where you can find karaoke every night. For the shoppers, Old Town offers everything from sports wear to souvenirs at the 75 shops you’ll find there! Enjoy having your picture taken, learn how to pull taffy, head for a day spa, get a tattoo, rent a car or visit a petrified rock forest while you’re shopping!
If you’re looking for more excitement than a theme park why not consider a swamp buggy ride with Boggy Creek Airboat and Swamp Buggy Rides for an up close and personal look at turtles, alligators, exotic birds and more as you glide through Florida’s wetlands or you can get a special guided fishing trip for a relaxing day of bass fishing.
Golfers will have trouble choosing from the more than twenty world class golf areas in Kissimmee. From beginners to pros, Kissimmee offers public golf courses to attract everyone with their pristine courses.
For an unusual dinner and entertainment, head over to Medieval Times – you’ll be enthralled with the pageantry you’ll find as your entertainment is provided by Knights in full costume, shattering lances and the thunder of horse hooves. Another option is Arabian Nights where you can dine and be entertained with the fairy tale drama of the black stallion. Or if you like something a little less intense, head over to Capone’s Dinner & Show and enjoy the speakeasy theme heading back in time to Chicago! This musical comedy will delight everyone! These are definitely an adult entertainment event that is sure to please everyone!
If you are looking for an Irish Pub, Karaoke, a magic show or any other type of hot spot, you’ll find them all here in Kissimmee. You’ll thoroughly enjoy the nights regardless of how you spend them or how tired you are from a busy day of sightseeing!
