"You are from NY, what are you worried about! FL has bad neighborhoods like any other place. I wish I could offer a better answer, (I am not familiar with that neighborhood) but I would say Kissimmee is pretty safe."

"After living in the Orlando, Kissimmee for over 65 years, I can tell you a little about Kissimmee. If you fish, there's a chain of lakes all the way to Lake Okeechobee that are full of large mouth bass ans speckled perch, crappie, that'll keep you very busy. Kissimmee has it's bad spots as any town. After you're here for a while you'll be able to spot them. Highway US 192 is the main East/West road going to Disney. Have fun and Enjoy"

Which hotel in Kissimmee is the best to stay in? I stayed in the Days Inn Maingate East and the Master's Inn Maingate East. Are there any hotels that are as nice as these that aren't too expensive?

"Check out BestWestern Eastgate."

"We stayed at the Seralago Hotel in October. We got the reservations through Expedia and got a great deal. The hotel was clean. They have a laundry room and swimming pool. They also have a free, mediacore breakfast buffet, which really helped on saving money. The staff wemt above and beyond with my special needs daughter. I would definately stay there again."

"Absolutely. Two of my favorites in Kissimmee are the Best Western Lakeside: and the Lake Suites: Both offer complimentary shuttle service, are close to the parks, have great pools, etc... the lake suites are condo style with a full kitchen and their prices are very low in the off-peak seasons!

A man and his wife are on vacation and decided to drive to Pensecola. Along the way they enter the town of Kissimmee, Florida. The wife asks her husband how to pronounce the name of the town and he says that he doesn't know so he guesses. Due to the spelling the couple argue about how the name of the town is pronounced until the man says he'll ask somebody. He proceeds to pull over and walk into a building before walking to the counter. "Ma'am, my wife and I got into an argument and I was wondering if you could pronounce the name of this place slowly for me." The man asked the lady behind the counter. The woman's eyes went wide and she replied "Bur-ger King."

Tyrone S. :
