Family Travel Fun in Kissimmee, Florida

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Kissimmee Tourism. All opinions are 100% mine.

Kissimmee, Florida is a family travel destination with many attractions often overshadowed by popular area theme parks. I know that my family (my son in particular) wants to visit Universal Orlando’s Wizarding World of Harry Potter, which officially opens June 18. However, there are so many other places to explore while spending a holiday or vacation in the Kissimmee area.

I went online to the official Kissimmee website to see just what other activities were around and I was surprised to see just how close Kennedy Space Center is located. Kissimmee is also only a two hour drive to Gulf Coast area beaches.

I love planning family vacations and we all get involved in the process. My husband finds golf and fishing relaxing while I’m a spa fan. Fortunately, Kissimmee offers choices for both of us. The kids have asked to return to Discovery Cove to swim with dolphins now that they are a bit older and barely remember their first experience. It seems like this destination is a family-wide pleaser that will keep every member happy.

Where would you go if you went to Kissimmee? Have been there before? We’d love to hear about your favorite places or that spot you’re dreaming of going someday for your family vacation or holiday. Share it in the comments.

  1. Great write-up! Years ago, a Lebanese colleague and I traveled to south Florida to attend a convention. We had a lot of laughs over the town of Kissimmee’s unique name as it sounds a lot like a really crude anatomical word in Arabic. Lovely city. Funny name. 🙂
