Central Florida is often dominated by Orlando and its acres of theme parks. However, just south of Orlando in Osceola County, Kissimmee offers a variety of recreational opportunities that don’t include roller coasters or Disney characters. Enjoy some of the lakes and parks in the area, take a boat or helicopter tour, or get to know the local food flavors. And, if you need your Space Mountain fix, Orlando is about half an hour away.

Seek Inner Peace at Wat Florida Dhammaram

One of the most unique Kissimmee destinations for residents and visitors is Wat Florida Dhammaram, a large Buddhist temple with gorgeous buildings and an inner peace vibe that’s hard to ignore. It’s a working temple that invites people of all faiths or no faith to observe and participate in the daily meditation and chanting practices that are the base for the world’s fifth-largest religion. The shrines here are replicas of India’s most sacred Buddhist sites.
