Just about every family trip to Central Florida involves a visit to one or more of the popular theme parks, yet there’s a lot more to see and experience in the area. A great place to call home during your visit is one of the vacation villas in Kissimmee FL, such as Fantasy World. Not only are they ideally located to visit the theme parks and other major attractions, but they also provide you with an opportunity to discover some of the lesser-known, yet enticing attractions and points of interest in the area.

Florida is known as the Sunshine State and all of that glorious sun results in some mouth-watering citrus fruit. For a tasty and entertaining side trip, head to the Showcase of Citrus. This 2500-acre family owned estate grows more than 50 varieties of citrus, as well as berries and grapes. You can taste and buy some of the resulting jellies, jams, marmalades and more that are made with the fruit, as well as try some other local favorites that include boiled peanuts and alligator meat. In addition to the citrus groves, there are farm animals to pet, some fun (and funny) photo ops, and even a swamp safari in the world’s largest 4×4 monster truck.
If you don’t have time for the Showcase of Citrus, you can make a quick stop at the iconic Orange World roadside attraction located at 5395 W. Irlo Bronson Memorial Hwy in Kissimmee. Not only can you buy oranges to take back to one of the vacation villas in Kissimmee FL, but you can also pick up lots of great Florida souvenirs.
