Attractions\Activities for Grandparents??

Hi, we're planning on staying in Kissimmee in November. My mum\dad do NOT want to visit parks with us & wondered if there were alternative attractions? They normally holiday in Europe and enjoy the leisurely walks and speciality shops.

Thank you.

Well, grandparents = grandchildren so I'm surprised they don't want to join you at all for the sake of seeing them having fun. The parks aren't all thrills and there is plenty for them to enjoy too. But, outside of that, if they like walks and shops, Celebration, Winter Park, Mount Dora, St. Augustine, Leu Gardens, Bok Tower are some options

Chiara and Zack,

IMHO there is lots more to life than leisurely walks and specialty shops. If your parents are physically capable, there are many outdoor activities that might be of interest. Ocala has horse farms that open to the public certain days of the month. There are eco-adventures by boat, horseback and swamp buggy. Birding season is just starting and Orlando's Mead Gardens has free tours by Audubon members every Saturday.

if they don't mind a drive, they can combine the leisurely walk with beach specialty shops and a very nice beach at Clearwater Beach. You can make a day of it and take the whole family to the Clearwater Aquarium and see Winter, the dolphin with the prosthetic tail.

The weather should be exquisite in November. They should get out and enjoy the bounties central Florida has for those who take the time to look off the road.

Yes how about taking an adventure aboard an airboat. It's a great way to see the natural wild unspoiled area's of Central Florida in the Swamps. Highly rated reviews here on Trip Advisor with Orlando Airboat Tours. It is a fun, educational, exceptional tour on premier comfortable airboats with highly skilled USCG licensed Captains. Reservations from over there are very easy to make. Thanks again for visiting with us, come back and see us again.
