A stone’s throw from Central Florida’s world-famous theme parks is a city with an unusual name you’ve likely heard of.
Located just south of Orlando, Kissimmee has a rich history that spans more than 150 years. In the mid-19th century, settlers established a trading post and a steamboat landing which would become the center of town.
Kissimmee went on to become a hub for cattle ranching and citrus farming. With the opening of Walt Disney World nearby in the 1970s, the city experienced a huge influx of visitors from all over the world. Souvenir shops, hotels, and attractions of all types came to dominate Highway 192.
Today, Kissimmee is a thriving city with a population of nearly 80-thousand people. It is known for its beautiful lakes, historic downtown area, and proximity to the many theme parks and attractions in the Orlando area.
On this episode, we’re exploring the 10 best things to do in Kissimmee.
