Just minutes from Orlando, the city of Kissimmee, Florida, is rapidly becoming a prime vacation destination because of its proximity to some of the best theme parks that the U.S. has to offer.
With a variety of outdoor activities and tours, as well as fun dinner theaters and restaurants, visitors can find family-friendly events to entertain kids of all ages.
Aside from the well-known Walt Disney World, Universal Orlando Resort and SeaWorld Orlando, other major attractions include Old Town, Gatorland and the Kennedy Space Center.
Downtown Kissimmee is a 30-minute drive from Orlando International Airport (MCO), and many hotels provide shuttles to and from the airport. West U.S. Highway 192 is the main road used by tourists and is easy to navigate, even in a rental car. Osceola Parkway offers a direct route between Kissimmee and Walt Disney World.
Note: Florida sustained widespread damage during Hurricane Irma in September 2017. Travelers should investigate current conditions prior to planning a visit.
