If you speak to a car enthusiast about a visit to Central Florida, they'll most likely direct you to visit Old Town to see the weekly classic car cruises.

Live music sets a tone for the cruise down memory lane with oldies bands appearing on Old Town's main stage.
In addition, Friday nights are home to the All American Muscle Car Cruise featuring show-quality American "muscle cars" and classics from 1988 and older.
But the cruises aren't the only fun found here, as any day of the week is sure to please as you explore this slice of Americana, discovering kid-friendly rides, go-karts, a haunted house, themed restaurants, an arcade and a mix of shopping that is sure to deliver a variety of souvenirs to take back home.
For a thrill, take on Old Town's AMPventure Experience, a state-of-the-art adventure course with a four-story ropes challenge course, a zipline and a 35-foot rock climbing wall. Those truly brave can't miss out on the Old Town Slingshot, hurdling riders high into the sky above Kissimmee and Highway 192!
