Each and every Winter I find myself fantasizing about taking a vacation some place tropical. I can’t even count the amount of times I’ve put together sample trips and itineraries to Jamaica and cruises to the Bahamas. We’ve had such a mild Winter in The Midwest which leaves me a bit suspicious, but I’m filled with gratitude.
See, I had reached the point where I knew I would not be able to make it through another Winter with all of my sanity intact. We thought about moving, but the idea was too lofty for 2015. In the Fall, I started my annual fantasizing about escaping the Winter for a warm vacation. What’s the easiest way to get to Bahamas? Mexico? A cruise, perhaps?
All of the destinations on my wishlist have several obvious things in common; warmth, sunshine, palm trees, but also in order to each of the destinations, we’d have to arrive in Florida first. So why not just stop there? Florida is just as beautiful and honestly a whole lot easier to budget for. Every now and then, I’ll catch a commercial for Kissimmee, FL and I must admit I’m really curious to check it out. I like the idea of being in close proximity to theme parks without being right on top of them.
Kissimmee is located next to world-famous theme parks including Walt Disney World, Universal Studios Orlando, LEGOLAND Florida and SeaWorld Orlando. In addition, Kissimmee attractions include plenty of outdoor adventures from hot air balloons and thrilling airboat rides to ziplining to hiking and kayaking for an authentic Kissimmee nature experience. Eco-tourism is my jam.
I love exploring the quaint parts of new cities, so strolling through the historic Downtown Kissimmee for good eats and trinket shopping is a must. The selection of Vacation Rentals in Kissimmee are pages and pages long so I’m sure we’d find a cozy spot to lay our heads. I like the idea of renting a home versus a resort or hotel. Oftentimes the prices of rentals beat beat typical lodging, so it’s a win being able to feel at home for less.
Thankfully, I’m not needing to escape the cold… as in my sanity isn’t dependent on it. Our weather’s been really mild, however, I’m still itching to travel somewhere I can wear a sundress. I definitely see Florida in our near future.
