First Time Kissimmee Visitors Guide

Kissimmee is a great place to stay when visiting Central Florida, as it is ideally located to give you easy access to so many of the popular destinations. Plus, when you stay at FantasyWorld Resort in a Kissimmee vacation villa, you also have the benefit of all of the activities and entertainment we have available year round. What you may not know is that Kissimmee is home to plenty of great attractions that are worth a visit, from shopping to adventures, there’s something for everyone in Kissimmee.

We’ve all heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day and if you have an active day ahead of you, a big southern breakfast may be just what you need to keep you going. In that case, make sure you head to Kissimmee Diner, which does more than just breakfast. Southern hospitality and southern cuisine classics are staples here, but you’ll find other popular cuisines, including Mexican. Whatever you order, the portions tend to be big so you’ll have plenty of energy to keep you going on your Kissimmee adventures or refill after an active day.

You can’t visit Kissimmee without experiencing an airboat ride. This exhilarating adventure is something you’ll remember for years to come. The highest-rated airboat company is Spirit of the Swamp, right here in Kissimmee. The airboats – essentially boats with huge fans behind them – are a fantastic way to take in the stunning natural scenery that is such an important part of Florida. As well as the variety of plants, trees, grasses and more, you’re sure to see plenty of local wildlife on your ride, too, including a few alligators! If you’re in a group of four or more, you get your own private boat through the swamps and marshes where you’ll also see beautiful birds and other fascinating sights. Take a 1 hour, 90 minute or 2 hour airboat ride and make the most of the high-tech headsets that allow the captain to easily point out any interesting flora and fauna, as well as let you ask the captain questions while you’re out exploring.

If you want to see more gators, a trip to Gatorland is a must. This iconic landmark has been open for decades, letting people learn more about fascinating gators, as well as other animals. There are reptile shows, gator feeding, a petting zoo, nature walks, fun shows, and even a zip line. There’s something for everyone to enjoy here so don’t miss this beloved Kissimmee favorite.

If you’re looking for something a little less adventurous – though opinions may vary – there’s always the fantastic shopping at The Mall at Millenia. Home to more than 150 retail stores and dining spots, this is definitely an adventure for your wallet! You’ll find a variety of price points, but you’ll definitely find some amazing luxury brands that include Gucci, Tiffany & Co., Chanel, and more. A little retail therapy is a wonderful way to cap off a fantastic vacation.

These are just a few of the things to do in Kissimmee. There are also hot-air balloon rides, a variety of dining options, Pirate Island Adventure Golf, not to mention the regular golf courses near FantasyWorld Resort. So if you’re looking for a Kissimmee vacation villa to call home while you explore Central Florida, be sure to book one of our spacious villas, complete with full kitchen, as well as on-site activities, crafts, pools, sports, and much more.
