Orland is too big to make the list, but this small suburb offers access to the largest collection of theme parks in the world while still providing enough distance to visitors to feel like you can get away from the house of the mouse when you leave the park.

While most people see Kissimmee as the jumping off point for Walt Disney World, it actually has its own charm away from the touristy area. Historic downtown Kissimmee is the real "Main Street, USA" with a collection of antique stores, music stores, coffee places, wine bars, doctors offices, and a good selection of restaurants. While it doesn't have the upper-class appeal that areas such as Winter Park offers, it has its own unique charm that is slowly being found out about.
Play Trivia on Tuesdays at the 3 Sisters Speakeasy - a restaurant and full-service bar (located at 226 Broadway Ave). Participate in wine tastings next door at Vintage Vino - a cute wine bar that also serves artisanal cheese and craft beers (14 East Dakin Ave). Browse the 18,000 sq ft antique showroom (and get lost doing so!) at Lanier's Historic Downtown Marketplace (108 W Broadway). See a different side of Kissimmee on a Kissimmee Ghost Tour (http://www.hauntedkissimmee.com/).
Or see the real diversity of Kissimmee at the monthly Food Truck Bazaar. This family-friendly event is held the first Friday of each month on Dakin Ave (near the Civic Center and Library). Bring your chairs, picnic blankets, kids and dogs to this tasty event! Sample food from about a dozen different local food trucks - everything from Korean Bar-B-Q to Swedish Meatballs, gourmet cupcakes to savory crepes - and everything in between.
