Kissimmee, Florida Travel Guide

Complete Vacation, Recreation and Tourism Information

Much of Kissimmee's economic stability is derived from their chains of cut-rate hotels that serve as accommodations for tourists out to see Orlando and the surrounding attractions. Its focus on commercialism detracts in many ways from a sense of urban dignity and this is reflected in the overall structure of the town itself. Its drive to push cheap hotels, chain restaurants, and strip malls into the view of passing traffic tends to create a haphazard and chaotic effect. Despite this, there is one thing that's for sure, Kissimmee is close to everything.

Although Kissimmee is a bedroom community for other towns' tourists, there are a few attractions that it can claim as its own. Old Town presents free live entertainment amid a re-creation of an antiquated main street that houses dozens of shops and restaurants. Gatorland, which demonstrates how alligators are bred and nurtured, is particularly interesting and educational to children. Splendid China has fascinating exhibits of the Temple of Confucius and the Great Wall of China, amongst other Chinese structures. The Flying Tigers Warbird Restoration Museum has a splendid display of aircraft that are worth seeing. Perhaps the best attraction in Kissimmee is Disney Wilderness at the Nature Conservancy. In this 12,000 acre preserve of swamps and pine wood, nature lovers can spend quiet time strolling through the 7-mile path, observing and enjoying a oneness with the surroundings.

All the usual sports prevail here including golf, tennis, and fishing. There is a slight twist to sporting in Kissimmee. One of the more popular activities in the area are rodeos at the Kissimmee Sports Arena. With a full bar and concession stand, gift shop and live music, it is bound to please cowboys and cowgirls alike. Friday night at the Arena is an exciting change from run of the mill spectator sports.

Kissimmee is 20 miles from Orlando, 70 miles from Daytona Beach, and 80 miles from Tampa on SR-192.
