Plenty of things to do
Osceola County Welcome Center and History Museum
Discover Osceola County’s rich history at this interactive welcome centre and museum. It showcases the four different habitats found in Osceola County – the swamplands, oak hammock, pine flatwoods and the lakefront. Each of the dioramas is so distinct yet they all work together to support the diverse ecosystem of the area. After exploring the museum’s exhibits, head outside and put your newly learned knowledge into practice at the nearby Shingle Creek.
Museum of Military History
Wild Willy’s Airboat Tours
Get up close and personal with the inhabitants of Lake Tohopekaliga on this hour-long airboat exploration. Along the way, there’ll be ample opportunity to spot gators and turtles, eagles and perhaps even a few deer. Alternatively, if it’s the alligators you’re looking to see, opt for the Gator Experience, where you can meet and even have your picture taken with the area’s apex predator! Afterwards, head to the snack bar and chow down on some gator bites and fries.

Shingle Creek Paddling Trail
The Everglades are arguably the most well-known freshwater wetlands in the world, and it’s in Kissimmee that you’ll find Shingle Creek, the northernmost headquarters of this watershed. The state-designated paddling trail travels from Osceola County’s Shingle Creek Regional Park, all the way to Lake Tohopekaliga, or Lake Toho as it’s more commonly known. As you paddle along the stream you’ll pass scenic views, early pioneer buildings and even the site of a battle during the Second Seminole War.
