    The service is good and quick. They had no diesel cars left, but we could choose from several gasoline cars. The only minus - too many scratches on all doors, roof ...

    It was a little unclear at first after coming through passport control in the arrival hall, but found the rental place very quickly, bus service ok. Service was excellent, very friendly person, taking the time to explain the contract. I knew about the full tank of petrol, which I don't like, but have to accept. Also the insurance was explained. The car hire was very cheap so I wasn't expecting too much, the car had a few marks on it, but was in perfect working order. Tires could do with a renewal soon. The car was clean, radio working,so all in all I was happy.

A Quick Guide to... Kissimmee

Kissimmee is a city in the U.S state of Florida. It has a population of around 60,000 and was founded in the mid-19th century as Allendale. It was renamed as its current name in 1883 when it finally attained city status and its growth mainly stemmed from Hamilton Disston, who based his large drainage company out of the town.

It was around this time that Kissimmee was expanding and enjoying prosperity as a city. The city’s shipyard was operating at full capacity and the South Florida Railroad expanded to incorporate the city, as Kissimmee City Street Railway. However, the prosperity of the city was short-lived, as the steamships produced by the shipyard were no longer needed, thanks to the expanding railway lines across the country. The economic panic of 1893 was terrible for the U.S economy and hit Kissimmee hard when Hamilton Disston closed his operation in the city, making many people unemployed.

By 1950 Kissimmee only had a population of 5,000, with ranching and cattle raising being the main economic drivers. After the 1971 opening of Walt Disney World Kissimmee benefited from the increase in tourism and development in the region, which supplemented the agricultural side of the economy.

In terms of recreational facilities Kissimmee has the Osceola County baseball stadium and the Osceola County Softball Complex. The former is where the Major League Baseball team, the Houston Astros, conduct their spring training every season. The city also hosts the NCCAA men’s soccer national championships every year.
