I've lived in Kissimmee for about 14 years now and i'm ready to go out and leave! Haha, although its not bad, its just not what i'm looking for. Nothing is ever in walking distance, the people here aren't always the kindest, and the traffic here is horrible! My oh my, the traffic is one thing I would want to change for sure. The prices are pretty reasonable so that's something I enjoy and I've met some of my best friends here so i'd say that definitely counts for something. Kissimmee is filled with such diversity it makes me proud to be here from time to time. Diversity is key.
For the most part Kissimmee is a rather unappealing place, though most people can catch a glimpse of the Magic Kingdom fireworks. The light show can only distract soo much, but outside those walls you can find yourself in a rather unpleasant circumstance. From the roads covered by an array of pot to the angry drivers driving on it, speeding by and giving you the finger. Though the people here may not all be so amazing, the food here is a topic that is unmatched. You can find a multitude of plazas servicing countless amounts of restaurants and diners, with meals that could tickle the taste buds. So staying in Kissimmee is definitely more on the bitter-sweet side of Florida, but not everything here has gone off the rails.
