"Visit Old Town during the weekly classic car cruise, when the streets fill with vintage automobiles and the atmosphere is electric; but come early to grab a good viewing spot, as it can get quite crowded. Also, check out some of the lesser-known shops tucked away in the corners for unique souvenirs that aren't available in the more prominent storefronts."

History of Old Town

The inception of Old Town dates back to 1986 when it was conceived as a re-creation of a classic Florida town at the turn of the century—intended to evoke the nostalgia of a bygone era. Over the years, it has evolved, retaining its vintage aesthetic while at the same time adapting to new trends and the demands of its visitors. From the classic car cruises that have become emblematic of Old Town's culture, to the refurbishments that have updated its facilities, this attraction has remained a timeless piece of the region's history.

As someone who's seen Old Town transform yet maintain its distinctive character, I can tell you that it's not just a tourist spot—it's a place where memories are made and where local tradition thrives alongside tourist attractions. With each passing year, it continues to be a staple in Kissimmee's community, preserving the heritage of a Florida that once was while welcoming the future with open arms.

Why is Old Town Important?

Old Town holds a special place in the hearts of locals and tourists alike for its ability to transport visitors to a simpler time. It acts as a living museum, showcasing the architectural styles and leisurely pace of early-20th-century Florida. Yet, its importance goes beyond aesthetics—it is a hub of continuous activity, from weekly car shows to seasonal festivals, illustrating the vibrant community spirit that thrives here.

Moreover, Old Town serves as an anchor for Kissimmee's local economy, with its shops and attractions drawing crowds and supporting local artisans and business owners. It provides an alternative to the more grandiose theme parks of Orlando, offering a more laid-back and affordable form of entertainment, which is why many families choose to visit year after year. The preservation of this enchanting spot ensures that traditional Florida culture and entertainment are accessible to all generations.

Things to Do & See at Old Town

Visitors to Old Town can revel in a plethora of activities. The weekly classic car cruise is an absolute must-see, where pristine vintage cars roll down the streets evoking a sense of nostalgia. For shopping enthusiasts, there are numerous boutiques and specialty stores that offer everything from handcrafted souvenirs to retro memorabilia. And let's not forget the various dining options, from classic American diners to international cuisines, ensuring that there's something to satisfy every palate.

If you're after thrills, the family-friendly Fun Spot America amusement park is adjacent, with its Ferris wheel providing panoramic views of the surrounding area. Old Town also hosts an array of festivals and events throughout the year that celebrate various holidays and themes. And for those who enjoy the spookier side of things, the haunted house is notorious for leaving visitors with thrilling chills.

As we stroll down these streets, I always enjoy pointing out the lesser-known spots: the hidden corners where local artists display their work, the tiny ice cream shop that's been serving handmade scoops for decades, and the quiet spots where one can sit and appreciate the gentle hum of nostalgic tunes from the outdoor speakers. These, among other treasures, await those who take the time to explore every nook and cranny of Old Town.
