Kissimmee is the largest city in Osceola County, with an estimated population of only 60,000 residents. It boasts a legendary steamboat history, and some of the nicest warm weather all year round. You might be wondering why someone would visit such a small place to go on vacation, but it is often the smaller places that have treasures we would never see otherwise.
This post will take you through some of the attractions you should see at Kissimmee for an unforgettable experience.
Enjoy an Air Boat Ride
Getting straight into it with an action-centered activity, opting to try an air boat ride across a boggy creek is certainly one of those things that you do not get to do every day! It is family friendly, which means you can take the kids to hold your hand when the ride gets a little too choppy, and you will get to experience some unique sightings of the gators that lurk among the mossy swamps and other wildlife dotted around. For those who do not want to look down into the swamp (we understand), the scenic route boasts outstanding views of the Everglades – the gorgeous sub-tropical wetlands. Not for the faint of heart, but definitely a unique activity!
Kissimmee Air Museum
Definitely one for the plane and spitfire lovers, Kissimmee Air Museum offers an impressive array of aircrafts and projects to view at your leisurely pleasure. If you’re up for something a little more daring, the Kissimmee Air Museum is also offering the chance for you to fly your very own WWII Aircraft! And for those of you that would rather stay on the ground, there are plenty of scheduled up-and-coming air show. So, be sure to check in advance so you do not miss out.
Among all of this exciting and adrenaline pumping activity, you might wonder where on earth you can have a sit down after. Have a look at a Solara Resort Kissimmee, which boasts some luxury accommodation to complete your trip.
The Disney Wilderness Preserve
For those of you that prefer to be at one with nature, the Disney Wilderness Preserve might just be the place for you.
This stunning conservation showcases some of the best features and treasures that nature has to offer, especially with it being home to more than 1,000 species of animals and plants. This wilderness preserve is an essential part of the Everglades ecosystem, and acts as a significant habitat for both plants and wildlife that are or have been endangered. You get to see all of this first-hand via a trek through the 3-mile nature trail, learning about all of the incredible facts of this magical place as you go.
