Best Summer Ever

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Kissimmee Tourism. All opinions are 100% mine.

When Meagan was 2, we spent a few months with my mom. She was working at Disney World at the time, and we really got spoiled with unlimited access to the Magic Kingdom and Epcot center, like that.

But some of the nicest days we spent were actually away from the hustle and bustle and commercialism of Disney. Kissimmee is just outside of Orlando and absolutely adorable. I was never sure where Kissimmee, St Cloud and Celebration, Florida ended. Together, these 3 cities were so relaxing, so charming. I will never forget the day we sat by the side of a lake having a picnic. Around the lake was an eclectic shopping center with antique shops, sidewalk cafes and even a bookstore.

I've always wanted to go back there. My kids are older now and they love ghost tours. Kissimmee has two ghost tour companies, Kissimmee Ghost Tours and Ghost Tracker. I know we'd have to do both, just for comparison. My must-see attraction would have to be the Forever Florida Zipline Safari tour. There's a 4700 acre wildlife refuge and you can ride a zipline through the entire park. Wouldn't that be a thrill? I can't even imagine what that would feel like- flying, maybe?

We're planning to go back to the area for the winter of 2010-2011, now that we have an RV. I know in November and December the weather there is still so much nicer than here in Washington State, so we'll be comfortable playing outside and a lot of the attractions have off-season discounts.

Anyway- the Kissimmee Tourism website, at http://bit.ly/dlBGMu is where you need to go to check out everything this town has to offer. When we go back, Disney will be a one or two day experience and Kissimmee will get the bulk of our time. I can.not.wait.
