Gene and I dream all the time of taking our kids on a big vacation. Somewhere warm, sunny, and full of things to do. Kissimmee, FL is one of the places we dream of going! Right next door to Disney World, Universal Studios, and Sea World, there are a bazillion things to do. But, even more than all of those things, there are some really awesome free things to do in Kissimmee.
I am a History buff, and I love things that focus on the Civil War era. In Kissimee, you can visit the historic Courthouse, the oldest in continuous use in the State of Florida. St. Cloud would be another stop. St. Cloud is dubbed “The Friendly Soldier City” for the thousands of Civil War veterans who relocated there in the early 1900s. There are tons of antique stores, shops, waterfront parks, and restaurants. Sounds wonderful, doesn’t it? Oh, how I’d love to take the kids and let them learn while having FUN!
Now, if we could afford to splurge, you know we’d go all out – time at all the Disney Parks, a visit to Universal Studios, and a trip to Sea World would be top on our list. Oh, we also have to play mini-golf. Lots and lots of mini-golf! And, since we’re going all out, I’m taking along a sitter so that hubby and I can enjoy a romantic dinner – without 5 kids.
So now that you have seen all there is to do in Kissimmee, you’re ready for a care-free vacation yourself! Luckily, Kissimmee is giving away three (3) weekend getaways (3 days/2 nights) for two (2); and two (2) week-long vacations for four (4). Drawings will be held on or around 5/1/09 and 6/1/09. The best vacations are free, so go enter to win one for yourself!
