Colors of Kissimmee - traditions, festivals, mentality and lifestyle

_DSC1123-Edithdr You will quickly notice that you are surrounded by smiling people while walking through the streets of Kissimmee. However, this is noticeable even at the moment when the newly arrived tourist leaves the airport. Of course, there are many immigrants from different parts of the world here. You can meet a frowning Mexican or pensive Japanese. However, the vast majority of local residents smile almost 24 hours a day. There is no hypocrisy or obsequiousness in this. It is customary to smile at the passer-by, showing that "everything is OK".
It is quite easy to find a hotel suitable for a holiday with a child in Kissimmee. You should simply check whether there is a separate fenced playground, a pool for kids, and the possibility … Open
The love of communication is the second feature of citizens that you need to get used to. Local people can talk to you anywhere - at a bakery, post office or bus stop. If you want to buy flowers, you will be asked who the bouquet is intended for. You will also be given a couple of tips when doing this. It is worth noting that this constant neutral communication is combined with the need not to violate the personal space of others. It is not customary to visit without warning and call even for fairly important questions later than 10 PM here. No one will be breathing down your neck in the queue. It's also unacceptable to come close to coming here.
The locals very often ask tourists where they came from. Every tourist receives a "Welcome" regardless of where he comes from – Moscow, Venezuela or China. Any citizen will try to explain all incomprehensible things as clearly as possible. For example, if you want to buy a SIM card from a local mobile operator, the locals will almost draw a scheme on paper to explain all the necessary information. You should listen to everything the locals say. The rules are strictly observed here. For example, if you leave the car in the wrong place for even ten minutes, there is a high chance that it will already be evacuated. So you should follow all local rules and laws. Copyright
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
Health insurance is an important condition for staying in the country. Of course, there is conditionally "free" medicine here, as elsewhere in America. If you don't have money, your life will still be saved. However, you will pay for medical services for a long time after that. Medical care is just a business here. For example, a complex arm fracture can cost several thousand dollars if insurance does not cover the cost of its treatment.
_DSC1332(Explored) There is a similar attitude to emergency assistance. For example, most often, all the services at once – and doctors, and firefighters, and the police come when you call 911. Each of them issues an account separately. It is interesting that police officers who do not lead the chase do not have any privileges on the roads here. It is customary to give way to police transport here, even if it may damage your car. An American can even completely drive on the curb if it helps to pass an ambulance or firefighters.
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 … Open
The locals love sports. Regular runs in the morning and evening are very popular here. Many Kissimmee residents go cycling in their free time. Broadcasts of baseball, basketball, and American football games attract thousands of viewers. Few citizens don't have a favorite baseball team. Keep in mind that you can often hear a phrase like "well, yes, he was strong, he played football in College" here. In this case, and in general, when it comes to football, the American version of this game is meant. It's more like Rugby. This game requires a lot of stamina and physical strength. The familiar European species is called "soccer" here.
The people of Kissimmee are very patriotic. They love their small homeland and the whole country. Not all locals know where Austria is on the map. However, every local resident will tell you that their city is one of the most environmentally friendly. However, Europe and Asia are of little concern to local residents. They are Americans, and that's all.
Kissimmee is a popular vacation spot for Walt Disney fans, as there are several amazing amusement parks. Disney's Fantasia Gardens is deservedly considered to be one of the most interesting … Open
Christmas is celebrated on a large scale here. You should be ready for the fact that all the stores will be closed on December 25th. Local residents also celebrate New Year, Constitution Day, National Flag Day, Independence Day, Thanksgiving Day, religious Christian holidays like Easter, and once religious and now secular ones like Halloween and Valentine's Day.
