 Kissimmee quick – Orlando’s lip-smacking holiday destination

Imagine a place where the sun shines for 232 days of the year, you’re just a few miles from the world’s greatest theme parks, and you can come face-to-face with some of the most spectacular natural beauty in North America by just stepping outside your hotel. Welcome to Kissimmee, (pronounced ‘ki-simi’) where you can bump into Mickey Mouse around the corner, or hop on an airboat to buzz around Shingle Creek Regional Park and say hi to the ‘gators’. It’s a great mix of charming ‘Mom and Pop’ America, quality entertainment, and raw nature at her very best. You’ll also get that typically warm Floridan welcome everywhere you go, and giant breakfasts that’ll make your eyes pop!

Sure, a lot of people book Kissimmee holidays as a great base for ‘doing the theme parks’, but there’s so much more to this part of Florida than just the Magic Kingdom Park and Epcot. You’ve got retro-style shopping, 1950s American Diners, hiking trails, traditional fairgrounds, and wonderfully-named beauty spots like Boggy Creek (which is so much better than it sounds — trust us). Whether you’re looking for an all-inclusive Florida holiday, a chance to experience the ‘real’ America, or are taking the kids to Walt Disney World Resort for that once-in-a-lifetime experience, Kissimmee is definitely right at the top of our Florida favourites list.

Ready to discover this popular part of Florida? Whether you’re a golfer, theme-park lover or simply looking to soak up the sun, check out our Kissimmee hotels to start planning your getaway.
