Much more than just a basecamp for the Orlando theme parks, Kissimmee is a town in its own right. So when you’re not enjoying the rides, watching the parades and meeting the characters at Walt Disney World Resort or Universal Orlando®, you’ll have a variety of ways to spend your time. From family-pleasing restaurants and shows to the spills of the rodeo, ziplining through forests and meeting alligators. And if you really want to make the most of your location, the rest of Central Florida is home to the waterscapes of the Everglades, the Kennedy Space Center and sun-drenched beaches.

Find some space away from Orlando’s theme parks at the Kissimmee Lakefront Park. On the shores of Lake Tohopekaliga, it’s an idyllic waterside spot. Browse the antique shops and stop for an ice cream at a local parlour, Old Town Boulevard has a great ‘50s vibe - here you’ll find speciality shops alongside traditional fairground rides. During the weekly Saturday Nite Cruise®, its brick streets fill with classic cars. On the outskirts of town, the Pioneer Village & History Museum is one of the key Kissimmee attractions for  fans of local history.

It’s easy to explore the wild swamps, mangroves and waterways of the Everglades National Park from here. The exhilarating airboat tours on East Lake Tohopekaliga are amongst the top adventure activities in Kissimmee. Alternatively, head to nearby St Cloud (15km away) to see the wetlands at Peghorn Nature Park or ride the zipline roller coaster through the Forever Florida conservation area. Look out for the endangered Florida panther while you’re there. To meet real-life adventurers, touch a moon rock and eat space food, visit Kennedy Space Center. It’s close to Cocoa Beach, about an hour’s drive away, so don’t miss the chance for sunbathing and surfing too.

Packed with places to eat, nightclubs and street performers, the brilliant family nightspot of Disney’s Boardwalk is an easy 23km drive from Kissimmee. You can also see the spectacular Epcot fireworks from here. There are plenty of great places to go in Kissimmee in the evenings, from Old Town’s ferris wheel, to lively themed dinner shows. Some offer costume hire, so dress up and join in with the fun!. It’s worth checking out what’s on the bill at the Osceola Performing Arts Center. The theatre hosts comedians, plays and a variety of concerts.
