Kissimmee is often overlooked as it is close to so many famous attractions and theme parks. Visitors to Kissimmee should take notice of it's architecture as they go through Kissimmee's downtown historic district. A delightful mural in the downtown area shows residents enjoying small town life.
Like many parts of old Florida, the historic tree lined streets are 10 degrees cooler and make shopping at the antique shops and restaurants much more enjoyable.
Nearby Lake Toho, one of Florida most famous lakes, provides sports and recreation activities, and native birds and other wildlife call it home. Fisherman come to Lake Toho seeking trophy sized bass. Almost all bass fishing is done in 4 feet or less in thick vegetation using weedless lures.
There are many community events that are open and free to the public, like Kissimmee's concerts in the park series, which are held at Lakefront Park.
Twice a year, in October & February the Silver Spurs Rodeo comes to town, a tradition since 1944.
