Kissimmee, Florida | RTX Traveler Magazine Issue 12 | Florida

The Center of Excitement in Central Florida

It’s no secret that much of Central Florida is a playground for families, with countless theme parks, attractions and nonstop entertainment. Just south of Orlando and only minutes from the famous mouse ears that everyone knows and loves is Kissimmee, densely packed with more shopping, dining and fun than any visitor could cover in a week.

In the Florida Family Fun issue of RTX Traveler Magazine, we take you to Kissimmee’s I-Drive, where attractions like the SeaLife Aquarium, Madame Tussauds and Wonderworks await. We’ll also spend the day at a theme park that is truly as much fun for parents as it is for the kids: LEGOLAND Florida. While it’s impossible to cover all of the attractions and activities available in Kissimmee and the surrounding area, we hope you enjoy reading about these highlights and experience them with your own family on your next Central Florida vacation with RTX.
