Florida: Discover Kissimmee and its surroundings

Written on : 24 October 2017

Kissimmee: Ideal for a family vacation

The state of Florida offers a multitude of attractions all more exciting than the others. In the heart of this Southeastern region of the United States, the charming city of Kissimmee is far less known than Miami, Orlando, or Tampa, but is also worth visiting.

Despite its glamorous name, Kissimmee is certainly more discreet than its neighbour Orlando known for its Walt Disney World Resort, but contributes in its own way to the tourist popularity of its state.

The city located on the North shore of Lake Tohopekaliga has a range of recreational facilities that will delight young and old alike. An example of this is the old quarter of Old Town, located to the West of the city, which is a giant fair filled with amusement rides, gambling kiosks and souvenir shops.

Endearingly friendly, it is also regularly animated by open-air shows and is a delight for racing enthusiasts thanks to its collector car shows.

Live the magic of the Everglades

If you're used to renting a North American villa, but you do not know the city of Kissimmee yet, do not hesitate to visit it with your family. To the North of this agglomeration, the amazing Gatorland Park awaits you to share their passion for alligators and reptiles in a playful, spectacular and educational setting.

A few miles away, in Kenansville, another wildlife park called "Wild Florida" also invites you to contemplate the beauty of Florida's wilderness. More than 200 animal species including the African servals, lemurs, lynx, tamarinds and others, are to be discovered by means of pedestrian walks or by hydrofoil.
