Things To Do Beyond Florida’s Beaches
Not all of Florida’s top destinations include beachside condos and sandy shores. Located southeast of the Panhandle, Kissimmee is situated inland near the center of the state. For those with an interest in eco-systems, this town is known for its swamp tours and also offers quick access to the subtropical wilderness of the Everglades. There is a good chance you’ll get your share of gator sightings, as well as birds, water moccasins and turtles.
Kissimmee offers an abundance of nature areas where biking, hiking, and zip-lining can be done, and there are plenty of golf courses for those wanting to spend time unwinding on the links. How about an evening out with dinner and a show? You will have plenty of dinner theater options in the area complete with themes.
And, of course, vacationing in Kissimmee means you and your family have quick and easy access to Disneyworld. With only a 30 minute drive to the town of Orlando, you can be close to the big mouse without paying the same prices. You can also easily get to other family friendly destinations such as Discovery Cove and its sister theme park SeaWorld Orlando and Aquatica. For film fanatics, get a behind the scene glimpse of film production with a visit to Universal Studios.
