This part of our Visitor's Guide will cover
another of the popular vacation areas of Orlando -
As part of our collection, we will focus on
this area alone and specifically, it's main artery - US Hwy 192, the 'heart and
soul' of the Kissimmee
One of the truer 'crossroads' of the Orlando
area, many of the roads that are located in Kissimmee converge in and around the Walt Disney
World area, making it that much easier to navigate your way around.
Roads with names such as Interstate 4, US Hwy 192, Osceola Parkway,
Hwy 417, Hwy 535, Hwy 536, the Florida Turnpike and World Drive are
all part of the network here.
In addition to
this, you'll even find a few other beacons to mark the way such as
the sub-areas of West Maingate, East Maingate, and
the US Hwy 192 Mile Markers that are unique to the Kissimmee area -
indicative of the neighborly environment that this area of Orlando
shares with Walt Disney World.
This is all due to the fact that when Walt
Disney World was originally built, it was placed approximately 18
miles from the Downtown area of Orlando and Orlando International
Airport. Because of this the 100 square mile area that comprises the
Walt Disney World resort left much more room for future
development, such as the widening of US Hwy 192 via Kissimmee's 'Beautivacation'
project, and the wide expanses yet to be developed that are located
just north of Kissimmee and south of Orlando's International Drive.
In Kissimmee, you'll find a tourism based economy, rich in diversity and entrepreneurial spirit
with lodging to fit every budget type. Ranging from tourist class
motels to the area's World Renowned Resorts.
It is here in
the Kissimmee area that you'll find most of the Orlando
Vacation Homes and some of the hottest Real Estate markets throughout
the State of Florida.
