Kissimmee is one of Florida`s top tourist destinations, catering largely to families visiting nearby Disney World® and other theme parks. But you can also relax at Kissimmee hotels after days of shopping, playing golf at local courses, and enjoying the sunshine in the great outdoors. History buffs, too, will find Kissimmee an interesting place to explore, with hundreds of historic buildings and a couple of interesting museums.
The journey from Orlando International Airport to the hotels in Kissimmee is approximately 25 miles. You can get to your destination by taxi, pre-arranged shared van services, rental cars, or public transport. There are several car rental companies at the airport, as well as several others in the local area that offer free shuttles to passengers landing at the airport. Central Florida Regional Transit Authority`s Lynx buses will take you from the airport to Lynx Kissimmee Intermodal Station. Upon arrival, stroll around the Kissimmee Historic District with more than 180 properties listed on the National Register of Historic Places, or learn about the heritage of the city and region at the Osceola County Welcome Center and History Museum. Pioneer Village is a living history museum featuring a one-room schoolhouse, citrus-packing house, blacksmith`s shop, and the circa-1889 Ross Lanier House. Cheap hotels in Kissimmee also put you close to the city`s Old Town walking district, where you`ll find many shops, restaurants, and entertainment venues, including go-kart racing and a haunted house. Book the best hotels in Orlando that fit your budget so you`ll have enough money left to go shopping at some of the region`s many retail centers. Among them are The Loop, an outdoor shopping mall; the 70-acre Crosslands Shopping Center; and Plaza Del Sol, an indoor mall inspired by a Latin American town square. If you prefer to spend time outdoors, visit Lakefront Park on the shore of Lake Tohopekaliga with its fishing piers, playground, and trails for walking and biking.
