Reptile World Serpentarium

Reviewed By Traci I - Saint Cloud, Florida, United States

Florida once had a number of family-owned and operated attractions, most have made way for pricey theme parks run by multinational conglomerates, this is one of the few places left that mirror the attractions of yore. You wont need more than a few hours to see the property. The main draw is the daily show where visitors can see how venom is obtained. The long-time owner - missing several fingers from past bites - makes most of the anti-venom for the state. Theres an impressive exhibit of snakes and a gator pond on site. Dont expect fancy, expect authenticity and you will enjoy the vjsit. If you plan the trip for a Sunday , visit the local farmers market almost directly across the road for more local culture. And if you are bitten by one of Florida's many dangerous snakes while vacationing, well you will know who to call and thank for the life-saving venom.
Word of advice -no matter where you are, do not swim in our natural waterways at dusk and dawn, those are the hours gators hunt. Do not swim with pets and never let your child swim alone, gators give preference to prey that's smaller or the same size as them.

Deseret Ranch

Reviewed By MaeHem50 - Merritt Island, Florida

Our group spent about 30 minutes in the visitor center, an original restored historic home with the most amazing wrap around porch learning about the history of Deseret Ranch along with a short video. Afterwards we hopped on a comfortable air-conditioned bus and took a tour of the property. Just amazing and we learned so much about this fantastic central Florida gem. Looking forward to returning again, this time bringing my family!

Lake Runnymede Conservation Area

Reviewed By cndirector1 - New Holland, Pennsylvania

Looking for a place to hike after another activity we found Lake Runnymede Conservation area. There are 2 hikes, both flat and easy to do. We did the Live Oak Trail and were in awe of all of the Live Oaks. They are covered with Spanish Moss which adds to the beauty of the area. We found a seating area and fire pit which was an Eagle Scout project. This hidden gem is a must do!

Peghorn Nature Park

Reviewed By Frank d - Winston Salem, North Carolina

I guess this place is more of a garden than a farm, but it seeks to illustrate the historical farming and gardening practices as they were conducted years ago. Very educational and informative about the way things used to be. There's a reconstructed one room school house, a canning barn, walking trails, and even an informative playground for the little ones. I found this place peaceful and delightful.

Premium Peach

Premium Peach, LLC is an agrotourism, u-pick peach farm. Opened in 2014, Premium Peach welcomes families from across the state of Florida every weekend during "picking season." Our picking times are regularly updated on our Facebook page. Our typical season is from April to May.

Reviewed By CaraMiaRN - Orlando, FL

Found Premium Peach through another local farm. Never had been peach picking before though. The owners were so nice! He took me around on my own tour showing me which ones were good and answering all my crazy questions. They have a couple different kinds they grow there and the fruit is low enough to the ground to reach. If you didn't know as I didn't, Florida Peaches are smaller and more firm. They weigh them after you pick and charge by the pound. I picked about 6 pounds and made a wonderful peach cobbler with them! I have not perfected an easy peeling process yet but it was worth all the work of peeling them. If you give your email they send you a very nice recipe book. Looking forward to going next year!

Crescent J Ranch

Reviewed By Linda C - New Smyrna Beach, Florida

For all the gals except Linda, horseback riding was a recent adventure. 40 years for Linda. Dressed in cowgirl garb, but lugging pillows and sleeping bags, all arrived on site and were paired with their horses. 3 1/2 hours later, our new guide finally found our campsite, but not before going through a swampy creek up to the belly of the horses, and in and out of all but vaguely discernable paths through the brush, observing feral pig trails and a slow autumn evening softly folding into a pink and blue sunset. Smelling the campfire, we hunkered down, layered up and enjoyed the warmth and crackle of our camp. The prepared 'chuck wagon' dinner, served with a western flair out under the stairs rivaled any gourmet meal to be found anywhere. Dark settled over us pretty quick and by 7:30 some were yawning, but finally at 9 p.m.
we crawled into our little tent, mounted up and broke camp, rounded up some cows and had a wonderful time. We've raved to friends about our adventure often, extolling the glories of being out on the 'prairie' and enjoying God's creation.

Silver Spur Rodeo

Reviewed By waylander h - London, United Kingdom

Great fun, if a little (to British eyes at least) strange - wild cow milking anyone?

The bucking bronco competition is amazing (and looks painful!), and some of the roping and 'branding' (using chalk!) shows real skill.

This really is an interesting event to visit and well worth it as an antidote to the whole theme-park thing. I guess it's obvious but if you're any easily offended vegan/vegetarian stay away as the signs promoting eat beef are *everywhere*!

Osceola County Stadium

Reviewed By wbullseye - Windermere, Florida

I attended a minor league game between the local Florida Fire Frogs, High A affiliate of the Atlanta Braves, and the St. Lucie Mets. This is the inaugural season for the Fire Frogs being in Kissimmee, FL and they play their home games at the Osceola County Stadium. The stadium is part of the Osceola Heritage Park which also includes an arena, exhibition center among others. Parking for the stadium was in a large grass lot and costs $5. It looks like parts of it get muddy after rain and could possibly pose problems trying to drive through those affected spots. Fortunately I had no problems the night I was there.

Tickets to the games are affordable. If you purchase tickets prior to the day of the game the prices are from $10-$12. However if you purchase them the day of the prices are slightly higher at $11-14, which is still cheap in my opinion. They also have weekly promotions for discounted food and drinks (both alcoholic and non-alcoholic). They also have various food stands throughout the ballpark. However I did not order any food and didn't notice the prices.

The stadium has a capacity of approximately 5,300. The seats, and prices, are separated into various sections. However there are no seats with a bad view as I saw no areas with any obstructions. Two things to keep in mind. First, the majority of seats are in the open and you will be in the sun most of the time. Most of the games are in the evening, however it still is hot. Secondly make sure to be aware of foul balls. The netting behind home plate only extends a few feet along each side of the field. Hard balls hit will fly into the stands and if you are not careful can easily get hurt. You will also be able to see the scoreboard from every area. They show detailed information for the home team, and just the picture and name for the visiting players.

If you are looking for something to do and like baseball, I would recommend attending a game at the Osceola County Stadium. You don't need to be a fan of either team playing to have a good time. Games go by quicker than they used to with the implementation of a time clock and they have activities between innings to entertain the fans.
