Thinking about visiting Kissimmee, Florida? We are headed to the Kissimmee area this year so I’m on the lookout for inexpensive attractions for my family.
Last time I visited the Kissimmee, Florida area, which is just south of Orlando, I was around ten years old. I’m sure much as changed in those “few” years. I still treasure those memories and I hope my children will too!
First thing I did was check out the Special Offers on the Visit Kissimmee site, which showcases last minute offers, fall getaways and other packages. These offers change often, so you will want to check often.
Lodging: The most economical choice is to camp, of course. Kissimmee has several campgrounds and RV parks to choose from. While it is the most economical choice, I’m not a big fan of camping even if it is luxury camping. This is the reason why the Special Offers page is handy to find deals.
Of course, everyone knows about Disney World but what else does Kissimmee have to offer?
One of the first places on my agenda is the Kennedy Space Center. You can easily spend a whole here with the exhibits, movies, and the new Shuttle Launch Experience Ride as well as the U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame. I know my kids will love this.
Gatorland looks like a fun activity for the whole family. When I was in New York this past fall, I was able to meet up with this lovely creature from Gatorland. Yes, I was a little freaked to be so close!
For Budget Travelers, there are many free attractions in Kissimmee you can visiting including the Old Town Shopping, Dining, and Entertainment Complex. On the weekends, it is a transformed with custom cars, which is a huge hobby of the children’s grandpa. They boys have picked up on the car crazy gene too!
Other Free Places to visit:
One week will probably not be enough time for all the things we would like to do and this isn’t even including the two days we will be visiting Disney World.
What would you do if you were going to Kissimmee? Any suggestions, tips, or attractions we must visit?
