As you cross off dates until the coming national championships held in Kissimmee at the end of the year, make sure you to begin planning your dream vacation in the Gateway to Fun! With new attractions and must-see family entertainment, there’s always something to enhance your getaway. Pair that with our endless sunshine and off-the-beaten-path adventures and Kissimmee has it all, no matter what you want to do or what your schedule looks like.


Here are a few fan-favorite half-day thrills in Kissimmee:


1)      Feel the heart-pounding thrill of soaring high above the clouds: Home to the world’s tallest Skycoaster standing at 300 feet, Fun Spot America Theme Parks provides the thrills for you and your family! And from way up there, you’ll be able to spot the Old Town Slingshot, hurdling riders high into the sky above Kissimmee and Highway 192. Those who are truly brave cannot miss out on these rides!


2)      Float under towering moss-draped cypress trees at Shingle Creek: Discover a land where alligators roam freely and exotic birds mingle above tropical foliage. The Paddling Center at Shingle Creek offers guided tours and rents kayaks, canoes, paddleboards and bikes. Experience some of the most scenic and remote places in Florida and enjoy the fascinating flora and fauna of area waterways that feed into the Florida Everglades.


3)      Put yourself in the driver’s seat, hold on tight and get ready to get muddy: Relax, fish, practice archery and go wild on an ATV at Revolution Off-Road. This 240-acre outdoor preserve will lead you through tracks and trails to the ultimate adventure! You can also experience Mucky Ducks—8-wheel amphibious vehicles that seat four and can run on land and on water. Keep your eyes peeled for gators in the lake, white-tailed deer, armadillos, raccoons and turtles!


4)      Get back to basics with a history lesson on Kissimmee: From the historical to the downright quirky, Kissimmee has several noteworthy sites to visit. Travel back in time to the Pioneer Village at Shingle Creek and walk through the old Cracker house, the citrus packing house and the blacksmith’s shop. Or visit the Monument of States at the Kissimmee Lakefront Park and gaze upon the 562-pound concrete eagle that sits on top of the offbeat monument.
