Kissimmee Florida Tourist Attractions

Don’t know if you are like me but I like to read …a lot! I always find new stuff interesting but sometimes I come across other stuff that reminds me of the things around me. Over the weekend I came across an article by Thom W. Conroy, an author who lives in Ohio, who was writing about my hometown, Kissimmee.

Take a look…we’re about more than just the theme parks…

Local Kissimmee Florida Tourism Attractions are often overlooked by visitors to the area, mostly because many of them do little in the way of national advertising. The close proximity of Kissimmee to Orlando Florida and the larger theme parks situated there distract from the wonderful attractions of Kissimmee Florida. A city with a population of over 61,000 located in Central Florida, Kissimmee is spring training home of the Houston Astros of Major League Baseball, a baseball umpiring school and a large softball complex. Here are some great local attractions in Kissimmee Florida:

It features a dinner show based on an 11th Century Tournament and Feast, complete with knights, jousting, and displays of horsemanship all wrapped around a theatric story.
