Kissimmee driving tourWhen you're looking to plan an after school activity with your family, time is of the essence! They're bored, they're hungry, they're tired. These four pre-planned tours are a great way to enjoy the community after a long day of school and are educational too. Also great for family or friends visiting Kissimmee or St. Cloud while they're in town and want to learn about our area, Osceola County style.


Take a look at these 4 pre-planned tours you can enjoy in Osceola County, hardly lifting a finger.  

1. Driving Tour of Osceola County

You can enjoy the historic parts and newly built parks on this drive through our beautiful community. Brochures are available at the Osceola County Welcome Center and History Museum. Get directions here!

2. Museum Tours

The Osceola Welcome Center and History Museum as well as the Pioneer Village on Bass Road both have prearranged tours that are fun and educational! Kids can take a selfie in the eagle's next or check out a real blacksmith shop from the early 1900s. There is so much that the Osceola County Historical Society has to offer here.

3. The Sculpture Experience in Historic Downtown Kissimmee

The Kissimmee Sculpture Experience was created in 2006 by Phyllis Ross and is an annual exhibit of outdoor sculptures placed around Downtown Kissimmee. You can pick up brochures for this free walking tour at the Kissimmee Main Street Welcome Center and even vote for your favorite piece at the end! In April of every year, Kissimmee Main Street holds the Sculpture Pub Crawl event where locals and visitors alike can sip and stroll, look at art and enjoy the historic atmosphere.

4. Mural Walking Tour in Historic Downtown St. Cloud

This walking tour through St. Cloud's Main Street District will showcase multiple murals highlighting state and local history. Brochures are available at the St. Cloud Main Street office.
