Culture of Kissimmee. Places to visit - old town, temples, theaters, museums and palaces

Kissimmee is a young city. The first houses were built here only in 1883. However, a few interesting buildings have survived since then. Walt Disney amusement park was opened very close in 1971. The population of the city began to grow. Unfortunately, hurricanes caused quite significant damage to buildings in 2004. However, everything that could be restored was recreated in their original form. You will not find old buildings or large museums with thousands of expositions here today. However, there are places in the city that both adults and children have to visit.
Kissimmee is not the largest of the American cities. However, you can buy a variety of souvenirs here. If you want to make thoughtful shopping and visit really big shopping centers, you … Open
Old Town can be considered one of the most interesting local attractions. This is a small corner of "Old America", located almost in the modern city heart. There are various attractions such as competitions in shooting a revolver for accuracy or speed, cafes stylized as saloons, and many shops with antique interior items from different years of the 20th century here. You can also see mansions decorated in colonial style," typically American" small shops with a set of products in style of the 80s, and, of course, cars. Old Town can be considered a real mobile car exhibition. You can find rare models that are already over 70 years old, modern sports cars, and pickups and minivans, often tuned and loved by Americans.
You can also admire old cars at a small exhibition near the Silver Spur Rodeo venue. Rodeo is a true tribute to the love of Americans for cowboys and everything connected with them. You can see how the horses were driven in the past during the weekly show. You can understand the peculiarities of American life if you visit Osceola County Stadium. American football and baseball games have been held here for decades. They gather crowds of spectators cheering for their favorite sports stars. Copyright www.orangesmile.com

Be sure to visit the Monument of States. This is a rather unusual monument, which was opened by a local travel club back in 1943. It may resemble an incomprehensible pyramid from afar. However, it is a structure with hundreds of stones from all parts of the world embedded in its walls. They were brought by citizens to Kissimmee. You can look at the labels and read them for a long time. In addition, the monument was supplemented with several commemorative plates after the opening. They are dedicated to certain military formations in which citizens fought for the Fatherland.
Cracker House There is also a monument dedicated to all the soldiers who fought on the fields of World War II in Kissimmee. It is located near the lake. This monument is called the Bataan-Corregidor Memorial. It consists of a rather interesting sculptural group. You can take a couple of pictures and get comprehensive information about the participation of local residents in military operations here, unlike many similar sites. You can see not only descriptions of the battles on the obelisk but also a small schematic map of the movements of American soldiers.

Local monks are ready to answer questions about their religion and tell the story of the construction of the temple.
Kissimmee cuisine is characterized by a large set of dishes found everywhere in the United States and inventions of local chefs. In addition to using Native American cooking heritage, dishes … Open
You can also visit the First United Methodist Church. It is a beautiful building both inside and outside. It has been an active religious building for many years.
