Check out the New Clubhouse with Pool and Gym
Summer 2017 saw the opening of the brand new clubhouse with resort-style pool, children’s splash pool and play area, fully equipped gym and a lounge area. All guests staying on Veranda Palms have full access to these facilities, free of charge.
Visit Downtown Kissimmee and Take a Trip Back in Time
Most people associate holidays in the Orlando area with Disney World, shopping malls and diners. Of course there are plenty of those things to visit, but there is also a lovely part of Kissimmee that many people do not realise is there. The Historic downtown area looks like a sleepy town from 100 years ago, with antique shops, cafes and a beautiful waterfront park. It’s well worth a visit to escape the crowds.
Shingle Creek Nature Reserve
Shingle Creek Nature Reserve it just 50 metres from Veranda Palms, and is accessible through a gate at the rear of the resort (behind the clubhouse.) Over recent years this lovely nature reserve has had lots of investment in it and it now has a ‘Pioneer Village’ you can visit to discover more about how Kissimmee residents lived before modern times. It is also a great place to run, walk or kayak around its peaceful waterways. Kayak can be hired in the park.
Restaurants within Walking Distance of Veranda Palms
Unusually for an Orlando resort, Veranda Palms is within walking distance of a handful of restaurants and diners on Highway 192, so if you want to take a stroll out for breakfast, lunch or dinner and leave the car at home you can enjoy typical American fayre in these local restaurants.

When you think of holiday villas, you probably think of lying by the pool soaking up the sunshine. However, villas can also be great places to get cosy and relax in the cooler, winter months. If you travel to the Canaries or Florida over winter you may actually be spending your days soaking up the warm sun anyway! Here is our pick of great villas for a winter getaway, whatever the weather.
If you are staying in Kissimmee its very likely that you won’t stray much further than the theme parks and Highway 192 for an abundance of shops, bars and restaurants. However, if you drive just a few miles east down the 192 you will find historic Downtown Kissimmee that offers a much slower pace of life.
