Family Fun in Kissimmee FL

Trips to Central Florida offer so much more than just the big theme parks. There’s plenty of great natural beauty to take in, as well as adventure and entertainment. This is why choosing FantasyWorld, one of the leading Kissimmee resorts, is such a great idea. It offers vacation villas that are like a home away from home, including a full kitchen, and it has its own water park, plus it’s ideally located to get to the big theme parks, the beaches, and plenty of attractions right there in Kissimmee.

One of the favorite activities for both locals and tourists is taking an airboat ride. Wild Florida is a great place to do just that, riding along Lake Cypress at the headwaters of the Everglades. You’ll get to take in the authentic Florida flora and fauna, as you keep an eye out for gators, eagles and other native animals. There’s also the opportunity to visit the Gator and Wildlife Park where you’ll find more than 200 exotic animals on display, and in some cases, you can even get up close and personal with some of the animals. If you prefer to keep your distance, you can enjoy the views and the animals during the Drive-Thru Safari.

Gatorland is a Florida institution, but it’s still worth a visit after all of these years. They have a showcase featuring thousands of alligators, but you’ll also find a petting zoo, an aviary, animal shows, and more. There’s plenty of fun and interesting information about the various animals. And if getting close to gators isn’t enough of an adrenaline fix for you, you can take the Screamin’ Gator Zip Line that sends you along 12,00 feet of zipline fun over plenty of gators!

If you like a thrill, but at a more leisurely pace, check out the various companies offering hot air balloon rides. You’ll get to see some beautiful views.

Fortunately, if you’re not an adrenaline junkie, there’s still plenty to enjoy in Kissimmee, such as Old Town Kissimmee. This charming recreation of a classic Florida town features a variety of shopping, dining, and entertainment options. Plus, there’s the Saturday Nite Classic Car Cruise each week that is pretty impressive with the range of classic cars on display.

Next door to Old Town Kissimmee is Fun Spot America, great fun for the whole family. This attraction features multi-level go-karts, roller coasters, and the World’s Tallest Skycoaster, a 300-foot ride that lets you experience the adrenaline rush of jumping from a towering arch. For those who like to keep their feet on the ground, there’s also a great arcade.

Don’t forget that if you don’t mind driving a bit further out, there are world-famous beaches to enjoy and you can even head down the coast to the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex. Not only can you see one of the shuttles up close, there’s a wealth of activities and behind-the-scenes info to enjoy, including the Shuttle Launch Experience, a walk beneath a moon rocket, the chance to meet a real astronaut, realistic training simulator rides, and some impressive IMAX® films.

These are just a handful of the many things to do in and around Kissimmee, which is why staying at FantasyWorld, one of the outstanding Kissimmee resorts, is such a great idea. You’re a short drive away from the major theme parks, and you’ve got easy access to a broad range of activities for the whole family. Plus, FantasyWorld has its own water park, games and activities for the whole family, making it a great place for a fun day without having to leave the resort!
