Kissimmee, near Orlando in Florida, is a great family friendly destination, as it is so near so many of Florida's most famous tourist attractions and theme parks, including Walt Disney World. In addition to these attractions and a glorious sub-tropical climate, the area presents unique opportunities to spot exotic and endangered wildlife. Whether your family are, roller-coaster fanatics or naturalists, or a mixture of both, you will have a packed time in the area, and you can cut down on the expenses by investigating the wide range of villas and holiday rentals on offer.
Kissimmee is within easy reach of Disney World, Sea World Orlando and Universal Studios, but you can also go for lesser known attractions such as Forever Florida, where you can go on safari on horseback or on a coach to spot alligators, black bears and even the incredibly rare Florida panther. Florida is of course also famous for its swamps, so a trip to Boggy Creek is also a perfect day out, you can take a ride in a swamp buggy out to explore the wetlands and see turtles and various exotic birds. These kinds of attractions provide memories which will last a lifetime, and are great for kids. And for a bit of fun, make sure you go to Medieval Times for a dinner show with a difference, as knights joust on horseback. This is an expensive venue, but could be a highpoint of an unforgettable family holiday, and of course you'll be saving a considerable amount of money by renting a villa rather than forking out for a hotel room.
A holiday full of theme parks can be an expensive business with even a small family. But you can make your budget go further by opting to rent a villa, as prices start around £500 a week for villas for up to six people. With air conditioning, pools, broadband and TVs included as standard, you can make yourself completely at home during your stay, and maybe even spend a day in the villa between theme park trips - with the extra space of self-catered accommodation this becomes a real option, whereas in a hotel kids are generally climbing up the walls within twenty minutes! By renting a villa, you can enjoy a low cost holiday in Kissimmee, and probably get to relax a whole lot more!
