The Perfect Girls' Getaway in Kissimmee Florida

Foolproof Tips for a Trip You Won't Forget

Kissimmee Florida

I had the pleasure of joining Experience Kissimmee recently to learn about all the area has to offer visitors. As a frequent guest to the area, I already knew that Kissimmee was an ideal family vacation spot. Meeting up with good friends and making new ones on this trip though brought about a very fresh perspective for me.

Kissimmee is the also the ideal place for a girls' getaway.

What makes it so? Well how about practically guaranteed weather for starters? They don’t call it the sunshine state for nothing my friends. Add on to that a seemingly endless array of activities, events and destinations and you’ve pretty much got the long weekend of a life time with your besties.

I don’t want to send you in blind though because there is so much to do, it might be a little overwhelming. Arm yourself with these foolproof tips for the Perfect Girls' Getaway in Kissimmee, Florida.

Don’t be predictable. Sure you could go shopping and relax drinking around a beautiful pool but why fall into all the stereotypes of a “typical” girls vacation. Pfft, you need something to brag about. Think outside the mall. Why not try ziplining over alligators and crocodiles at Gatorland!

Be predictable. Fine, fine. Sometimes stereotypes are a good thing and if you fit into the mold of the woman born to shop, then you absolutely can’t miss the Orlando Premium Outlets. Luxe stores like Burberry, and Prada await, and if you’re more like me then the Gap Outlet is also there too!

See Disney through an adult’s eyes. There is no question that Disney is a wonderful place for your family, but you really must check out Epcot and the World Showcase with your girlfriends and enjoy food and drink from around the globe. If you end up there from late September to mid-November you’ll have really lucked out with Disney’s International Food and Wine Festival. Also don’t miss the country of Cheese. Yes, that’s right, cheese. Cue the choir of singing angels.

Chill in style. Reserve your own private oasis with Global Resort Homes. Homes are available from 2 to 8 bedrooms. Everyone can have their own room, no worrying about shared washrooms and don’t even worry about the cooking. Global can hook you up with your own private chef.

Create bonds that will last a lifetime. Sure, you’re close, you've probably held each other's hair back once or twice, but get dropped 300 ft from the world’s largest sky coaster at FunSpotUSA and you will feel the love forever.

Cross something off your bucket list. For many a hot air balloon ride is a once in a lifetime event and there is no better place to do it than in Kissimmee with Orlando Balloon Adventures.

Enjoy a perfect evening in Downtown Kissimmee. Start your evening at Savion’s Place. Chef Savion is an up and coming star in the culinary arts, featured as part of Emeril’s Florida. Do not miss the pork rib eye or tostones. For a special treat ask Vintage Vino next door to do your wine pairing for you. After dinner move over to Vintage Vino and enjoy the cool vibe of the area while relaxing in its funky atmosphere.

Act like a kid. Go ahead and throw on your mouse ears and ride the attractions at Disney. Race your friends around the track in a go-cart at FunSpotUSA. Make your own custom chocolate bar at the Chocolate Kingdom.

Be one with nature. Florida has a unique natural landscape. Take an airboat ride with Boggy Creek Air Boat rides and marvel at the beauty of this fantastic state. Worth noting, Boggy Creek is only 20 minutes from the Orlando International Airport. I can't think of a better way to end your perfect girls' weekend. Can you?
