We could all use a break from the sun after a long day at the theme parks or lounging around by the pool. So, what's the best way to keep cool? Frozen treats, of course! In honor of National Ice Cream Day, here's a list of top five places in Kissimmee to beat the heat.

1. Abracadabra Ice Cream Factory

From liquid to creamy goodness right before your eyes! Abracadabra located in Downtown Kissimmee, is one of the most popular ice cream stops in the area. Using liquid nitrogen to freeze your ice cream creation within seconds, temperatures reach -328 degrees below 0. Choose a flavor or create your own and watch your flavor of choice flash freeze right before your eyes.
