Kissimmee, Florida, is a tourist destination best known for its proximity to Disney World®, but the city is also a delightful place in its own right. Historic buildings and museums, numerous fine golf courses, and lakefront parks -- as well as Florida`s year-round sunshine -- are just a few of Kissimmee`s enticements. Rent a car in Kissimmee and add to your itinerary some of the region`s famous theme parks and a day or two exploring the beautiful, wildlife-rich landscapes of Osceola County.
Driving Through Kissimmee
If you arrange car rentals in Kissimmee, you`ll find it easy to navigate the city and to head to other destinations throughout central Florida. The major east-west highway passing through Kissimmee is U.S. Route 192, which you can take all the way to the Atlantic coast for a day at the beach. The majority of restaurants and shopping malls in Kissimmee are along U.S. Route 192 and also John Young Parkway, a north-south route. Osceola Parkway, which cuts across the northern part of Kissimmee, is another hub of activity. To travel approximately 25 miles north to Orlando and its wealth of major tourist attractions, use Florida`s Turnpike or U.S. Route 441. Take the latter route and stop along the way at Gatorland, where you can see alligator and snake shows, soar along a zip line, and splash at the water park. For more of the wild side of central Florida, drive south to Lake Toho for a day of boating or fishing, or take an airboat excursion through the remote swamp waters to see alligators and exotic birds in their natural habitat. For families, vacations in Orlando mean visiting at least one theme park. Disney World® is just 10 miles to the northwest of Kissimmee, and Universal Orlando is 18 miles north. And with car rentals in Kissimmee, many other theme parks, water parks, shopping malls, and golf courses are within easy reach.
