Lakefront Park and downtown Kissimmee
Print Leave a comment
Kissimmee town has had better days. The main strip, Broadway, is pretty dowdy with some basic diners and antique shops. If you walk from there down Monument Ave you will see a very cool monument that stretches up to the sky. It is made of rocks from different states and countries. Continue on a few steps and you are in Lakefront Park on Lake Tohopekaliga. There is a great playground here, with a space age big-kid playground and next to is a colorful playground for little kids plus a ladybug bouncy and swings. A waterfront promenade borders the lake and leads to a splash pad and another playground. There are several piers, some with covered picnic tables, and a cute miniature lighthouse. The scenery is fairly barren and plain, even though it's a waterfront.
Don't go out of your way to visit this area, but if you're here anyway, you might enjoy a stroll and your kids will enjoy the playground.
If you're hungry there is a counter-service cafe, Susan's Courtside Cafe, in a cute historic house just off Broadway, south on Orlando Ave (see address below). You can walk there from the park. The food is typical American food with plenty of mayonnaise, but the house is sweet.
