You're Going to Love Kissimmee

Located right in the center of Florida, Kissimmee is what the sunshine state is all about. A wealth of attractions, dozens of great outdoor areas, and hours of sunshine almost every day of the year makes it the perfect choice for short stays and long vacations.

Its proximity to those world-famous theme parks is a plus. Kissimmee is exactly half way between Disney World and St. Cloud, while other parks like Universal Studios and SeaWorld are within easy reach of the city.

And, Kissimmee has lots of attractions of its own to shout about. Try the Screamin Gator zipline at Gatorland, or take the plunge on the tallest sky coaster in the world at Fun Spot America.

There's more to Kissimmee than theme parks, and you'll love exploring the city's beautiful parks and gardens, visiting local museums and galleries or shopping for the latest fashions at its malls and boutiques.

The fantastic Florida climate makes Kissimmee a great option at any time of year. There are three high season periods: spring break from March to April, summer break from June to August, and winter break from December to mid-January. The city tends to be busier at these times and attractions like Disney World are packed. October is one of the best months for a vacation in Kissimmee. It's still warm, the city is less crowded, and there are Halloween events at Universal for adults and Disney World for children.
