Swimming

Opportunities for water based activities abound during your visit to the Kissimmee area. Here we will provide a general overview of Water Parks, State Parks,  Florida's Beaches (to be added at a later date) and many other activities related to water and/or swimming.

Naturally, with the beaches of both the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean only 45 miles West and East of Kissimmee, there will be opportunities for some water-related fun

Whether it's choosing from the natural water ways of Florida or from one of the many Water Parks that abound e.g. Typhoon Lagoon, Blizzard Beach, River Country, Wet N' Wild & Water Mania.

Let us tell you about the lesser-known 'swimming holes' that remain firm favourites among local residents.

Starting with Wekiwa Springs

Located approximately 45 minutes north of Kissimmee, this outstanding spring is accessible by exiting Interstate 4 East at the Altamonte Springs exit.

Wekiwa Springs pumps nearly 42 million gallons of 'crystal clear' spring water each day and has always been a local favorite. Camping, Fishing, Hiking, and Canoe Rentals are all to be enjoyed here.

Its cool and refreshing waters offer a most inviting retreat for the young and old alike, especially during hot summer periods. 


In the same direction a little further north is  -
Blue Springs State Park another gem within the Florida State Park system.

Several exhibits can be found here, as well as swimming areas for all age groups.

Though there are literally thousands of springs and lakes throughout Florida, very few offer a swimming beach.

One of the exceptions to this is in the quaint community of St. Cloud, located just east of Kissimmee on US192. With a beautiful "tree-lined" Lakefront Park it is well worth taking the short drive to enjoy a picnic lunch overlooking the water.

---  ---

Don't miss the City of Celebration, just east of I-4, and across from Water Mania on US192. Drive down to the lakefront in Celebration and let the kids romp through the Lakefront Fountain which was built for that sole purpose.

Take a break during a two week holiday, go visit some of the Real USA.
