Explore Kissimmee

There’s always something new, explore it!

Kissimmee, Florida is a popular destination for tourists from all around the world. We offer many experiences ranging from beaches to theme parks, but many of our visitors don’t know about the unique places and events (some even free events in Orlando!) that local Floridians get to experience throughout the year. Many of these events are just down the road at Osceola Heritage Park or at various venues in Osceola County that are just around the corner from Flamingo Waterpark Resort! There is a broad range of things to do, see and discover, many of which involve enjoying the wonders of the great outdoors in the lake-filled heart of the Sunshine State.
