Where is Kissimmee, FL?
Kissimmee sits just 23 miles south of the bustling metropolis of Orlando, but the atmosphere that you'll find in this quaint and charming town is remarkably different from Orlando's more lively city vibe. Although you won’t see any skyscrapers, downtown Kissimmee’s unique shops, restaurants, and historic Old Town are ideal for travelers wanting to experience a piece of the action while enjoying the quiet neighborhood and the comforts of home!
Old Town Kissimmee
Arts, culture, and entertainment come alive in Old Town! The outdoor shopping mall and amusement park offer 18 amusement rides (including both a merry-go-round and roller coasters), 10 restaurants, and upwards of 75 specialty boutiques. The brick streets come alive every weekend with a parade of hundreds of hot rods and classic cars during the Nite Car Cruise.
Old Town is home to an arcade, laser tag, and even a shooter alley so you try your luck at some classic arcade games! Brave travelers can visit the haunted house and ghost tours at the Legends Dark Amusements, while those hoping for a more family-friendly experience can crash into each other at Happy Days Extreme Bumper Cars. With something for everyone, Old Town Kissimmee offers fun - with a little flair - for the whole family!
Day Trips from Kissimmee
Our diverse selection of vacation rentals in Kissimmee vary in size and included amenities, but each home boasts a location that is conveniently close to well-known family attractions like Walt Disney World Resort, SeaWorld, and Universal Orlando Resort!

During your stay, make sure to take some time and explore the surrounding area!
