Whether you’re stuck in the gray tundra of the Midwest, buried under a snowstorm in the heartland, or tired of the rain on the west coast, odds are you’re looking to escape to somewhere warm right about now. With year-round beautiful weather, Kissimmee, Florida is the perfect winter escape for families. Just minutes from the theme parks, families can soak up the sunshine on an airboat ride through the Everglades, zipline over alligators at Gatorland, or learn about space travel at the nearby Kennedy Space Center. Whether your family loves theme parks, shopping, or outdoor adventures, Kissimmee will be the perfect winter escape.
Why Kissimmee, Florida is the Perfect Winter Escape for Families
I don’t know what the weather looks like where you are, but outside my door it is gray and brown. ALL. THE. TIME. I would rather be in Florida enjoying the sunshine. I’m ready to pack my bags and leave my coat, hat, and mittens behind.
As you can see, there’s not much I want to explore outside right now. Seeing the nature of Kissimmee, makes me want to get on the next plane. Did you know you can kayak, fish, and even take an airboat through the Everglades? I admit the alligators scare me, but I’m sure they’re amazing to see.
3. Outdoor Adventures
Kissimmee has a lot to offer when it comes to outdoor adventures and attractions. The ones we would love to try include riding a zipline safari, taking an ATV ride through the wilderness, and going on a horseback tour of the Orlando countryside. We might even throw in a hot air balloon ride for good measure.
4. Endless activities for families
Kissimmee definitely isn’t lacking when it comes to activities for families. There’s Arabian horses, ghost tours, water parks, escape games, and go carts. Parents will never hear kids say they’re bored when there is so much to do!
5. Theme Parks
Did I mention Walt Disney World, Sea World, LEGOLAND, and Universal Orlando? I know I probably don’t need to, but these are definitely a highlight for many families visiting the area.
