    old town kissimmee is a great place to visit. There are some great shops, if you haven't had enough of rides there are some more. There is the Skycoaster if you want to be tethered 300 feet in the air. Theres also a slingshot reversed bungeee.
    There is on a Saturday evening a car show with some amazing Hot Rods, Custom Cars and Classic American cars. We went one night and there were over 200 cars.
    They also have a bike night.
    I will put on a link when i'm able

    Ooops. spelling never was a strong point. Pretty BIG is indeed what i meant.

    Keith the old town I think is amazing.I love the car night and the bike night they had a crowd of guys from the California west coast choppers over. Wow. There are some good bars in there as well

    Its a bit novelty, not stunningly clean but its got the cars for me on a Sat night. Its a bit scrubby at the end. The haunted house in the middle and the cast was a little freaky as we always go to Florida for Halloween.

    I'll have to have a look, probably lots of cars, mainly on moving pics. Wil have a look tomorrow. Its a great night on car night as they put on live bands. Can't recall the food being great there thoug although from memory theres a western sizzler across the road or Burger King on site.

    :yes: You can view the cars as they arrive and park up too. Lots of them open their bonnets etc beforehand.
