Five Ways To Stay Cool

We might be biased, but we really do think the sun shines brighter in Kissimmee! Lucky for you, we know how to make the most of the warmth while looking (and staying) cool as a cucumber. From high-speed thrills to places to chill, there are tons of ways to stay cool in Kissimmee. Check out our top five here!

Speed Away From the Heat

Kick off a day in Kissimmee with an airboat adventure! This early morning adventure will get your adrenaline pumping! You can expect a journey full of excitement and cool breezes as you jet across the waters at speeds up to 45 mph. Shoot past walls of tall grass and view the gators of Florida from a safe distance. The best time to see alligators is early in the morning (before 10:00 AM), or later in the day when temperatures have cooled. Want to drive the boat with a friend? There’s a tour option for that. Prefer to go at sunset? You can do that too. With many exciting options to choose from, you’re guaranteed to keep your cool.

Feel the Wind At Your Back

Looking for the ultimate thrill? Skydive City Z-Hills offers tandem skydiving – perfect for your first jump! Imagine jumping out of a plane, accelerating to 120 mph, and hurtling back towards earth. Does the thought make you sweat? We promise it won’t last long! You’ll want to remember this forever, so be sure to purchase a photo and/or video package to relive that hair-raising moment as much as you want. When in Florida, live life on the edge.

Park It At SeaWorld

An obvious but smart way to cool off is to head to SeaWorld’s Aquatica Waterpark. Spend your time enjoying extraordinary water rides and slides at the waterpark rated ‘Orlando’s Best’ by the Orlando Sentinel. Take a moment to relax at the man-made ‘beaches’ or burn off some energy at kid-friendly play areas. No matter what you choose, there’s something for everyone at Aquatica. Have lunch and snacks delivered directly to a private cabana to keep even cooler. Did someone say, “Perfect day at the park?”

Water-ski Like a Pro

Make your way over to Disney’s Contemporary Resort marina to experience Sammy Duvall’s Watersports. Sammy Duvall, a former child prodigy, and 80-time professional water-skiing champion is one of the most accomplished water skiers in the world. It’s no wonder his watersports center is the place to go for fun in the sun! Spend the afternoon taking in the best water activities, including parasailing, water-skiing, wakeboarding, wakesurfing, and personal watercraft rentals. Get a workout in and cool down at the same time!

Take a Staycation from the Sun

Sometimes, simple is best. Whether it’s happy hour at a tiki bar, a lazy river ride, or a race down a waterslide, it’s a ‘cool’ idea to enjoy the amenities of your resort or vacation rental. Splash around in your own private pool for the afternoon, prep a big batch of lemonade for the fam, or enjoy a little A/C while you unwind inside.
