Great Things to Do
Hit the attractions of Orlando, take an airboat ride across the lake or explore the Old Town with its classic cars, retro rides and diners - it’s your call!
Ride the Antique Carousel
In the middle of the stylised Old Town you’ll find an antique fairground which will take you on a nostalgic trip down memory lane. Ride the carousel, smash it up on the dodgems, look out for miles at the top of the Ferris wheel and shoot ‘em up at the retro arcade! A refreshing change from the vast Orlando themeparks.
Check Out the Classic Cars
On Friday nights, classic muscle cars roll into town, and on Saturday evenings, it’s the turn of the pre-1975 retro classics. On arrival they rev their engines and cruise along the main road through the Old Town, so you can admire and photograph these American motors. There’s even live rock ‘n’ roll music as a backing track!
Grab a Burger at an Authentic Diner
Where better to order an all-American burger, with all the trimmings, than in one of Kissimmee’s All-American diners, such as A&W in the Old Town? Grab a booth and wash down your burger with a signature shake. Or hit Denny’s for a classic American breakfast – try the bite-sized Pancake Puppies, but be warned, they’re addictive!
Milk a Cow at Green Meadows
This petting farm is a perfect place to go if you need a break from the high-octane excitement of Orlando’s theme parks. There’s plenty of hands-on experience in store, including learning the art of milking a cow, plus pony rides, hayrides and a petting zoo. There’s also a picnic park, so you can eat outside in the sun.
