Kissimmee’s Off the Beaten Path Activities

Kissimmee is a popular location as a home base for exploring Central Florida. As well as the close proximity to the big theme parks, Kissimmee lets you get out and enjoy many of the region’s other activities, some which may take you off the beaten path on everything from ATVs to hang gliders. Of course, there are other activities that will appeal to those looking for a more leisurely adventure. No matter your plans, start your vacation in comfort and style at FantasyWorld, one of the outstanding Kissimmee vacation rentals.

Water water everywhere – and there are plenty of water-related activities to enjoy. One that plenty of locals will recommend is a trip on an airboat. It may be a bit noisy at times, but it’s a fun thrill and a great way to see some of Florida’s stunning nature and wildlife. Boggy Creek Airboat Adventures is nearby and provides a fun way to see a range of animals, including wild hogs, bald eagles, egrets, and other beautiful birds, and of course, alligators. Your trip along Headwater of the Everglades can also lead you to the Native American Village, where you get a chance to learn a great deal about the first villages in the area and you might start to recognize some of the Native American words that are still quite prevalent in Florida in one form or another – including Kissimmee, which stems from the word for “long water” in the language of the Jororo people! The village also offers plenty of interactive activities with archery, mining for gold, and dining on some mouth-watering barbecue.

For a more tranquil exploration of the local waters, head to the Paddling Center at Shingle Creek. On the way, you’ll pass plenty of local Kissimmee attractions, including Old Town and Medieval  Times Dinner & Tournament, but once you reach the paddling center, you’ll think you’re in another world. Here, you can rent kayaks and either head out on your own or take a guided tour. Either way, you’ll be floating blissfully along waters covered by an umbrella of tall trees. This is an adventure for all ages and the guided tour is a great option, because you can learn more about the flora and fauna as you paddle along and you might be more likely to spot some of the creatures when they’re pointed out to you.

If the beautiful birds that you’ll see inspire you, there’s a way for you to take to the skies with them. Wallaby Ranch is the place to go if you want to hang glide 2,000 feet in the air. Your guide – don’t worry, you won’t be left hanging – will take you across the beautiful scenery around Kissimmee and even let you eventually “fly” once they’ve given you a few tips. Imagine free-flying for around 15 minutes and feeling the freedom that those birds get to experience. It’s sure to be an event of a lifetime.

If you prefer to stick closer to the ground, and don’t mind getting a bit dirty, then Revolution Adventures could be perfect for  you. With 230 acres surrounding a lake where you can fish and boat, there’s plenty of space for a range of outdoor activities. One of the popular options is heading out on an ATV to explore the trails and zip among the trees. There are other types of rides, including the Mucky Duck that gets submerged in the lake, and if you’re looking to get dirty, you can ride side by side in a Buggy that takes you all over the property, including a few muddy dips. Even if you’re not up for any of these particular adventures, you can simply sit back and relax in a rocking chair and take in the views of the lake and have some time to yourself while the rest of your friends or family are getting their adrenaline rushes.

These are just a few of the many activities in Kissimmee. You can always make the most of the full kitchen in the FantasyWorld Kissimmee vacation rentals and create your own picnic and head to the Kissimmee Lakefront Park or enjoy some of Big John’s BBQ there at the park. No matter what your interest, you’re bound to find some amazing experiences that could even outshine the theme parks.
