Located in Central Florida along the shores of Lake Tohopekaliga, Kissimmee and its vacation rentals are just minutes from Orlando and its amusement parks, but offer more than just Mickey Mouse-themed attractions.
At the Kissimmee Prairie Preserve State Park, more than 160 kilometres of trails allow hikers, bicyclists, and horseback riders to experience prairies, wetlands, and shady hammocks, in addition to Florida’s night sky (its remoteness makes it one of the state’s premier locations for stargazing). Lake Tohopekaliga provides some of the country’s best big bass fishing for anglers, and bird watchers will be well served with the ornithological opportunities on the Great Florida Birding Trail.
Kissimmee’s historic downtown features a quaint waterfront, art exhibits, concerts, and live theatre performances. The city regularly hosts classic car shows, rodeos, and cattle auctions, as well as the annual Silver Spurs Festival—the largest rodeo east of the Mississippi, and a Kissimmee favourite since the 1940s.
Kissimmee offers a vast array of natural and cultural attractions, as well as a variety of facilities and rental accommodation options, and is less than a thirty minutes’ drive from Orlando.+ More
