    You might try the Ringling Mansion and Museum in Sarasota... and maybe the Dali museum in Tampa. And what is that odd garden between Kissimmee and Winter Haven? The mega tower with the bells and pipe organ. Looks like something out of LOTR.

    There is also Fantasy if Flight that isn't too far away, can ride in a biplane or hot air balloon along with some exhibits and a rope course. Looks pretty cool

    The odd garden between Kissimmee and Winter Haven is the Bok Tower gardens. :thumbs: It's located off Highway 27.

    Gotta hit up the east coast as well, Kennedy is nice and there are some nice beaches around there as well. (I'd also recommend heading South to my SoFlo but I doubt you want to drive that far. :lol: )

    The Hommossassa Wildlife Statepark to get upclose with manatees.
    Wild Billy's Airboat Tours is fun too.

    I never knew that Arabian Nights closed in Kissimmee. Was it ever mentioned here?

    (tossing this here as it is apparently very old news and this is an old junk thread)

    Yup both it and the dolly Parton one closed quite awhile ago. I think Arabian nights closed first with the whole middle east is evil thing.

    No, it closed 2-3 years ago due to low business. Nothing to do with "Middle East is evil".

    Dixie Stampede closed in 2008.

    Thanks for the correction. I never heard anything else about it after the ball eagle finale and assumed it was shuttered shortly after.

    Idk if you're willing to head to Sarasota, or how off the beaten track you're willing to go but Munchies 4/20 has some pretty incredible food, it's a dive but the food is awesome.

    I always wondered if Arabian, Dixie and Medieval shared resources when they were all open sine they're pretty similar.

    Nowadays things like Pirates and Capones and Slueths are where you go to pilfer various actor types.

    It was a pretty bad show, so it doesn't surprise me it had low attendance. I went once and said never again and I like those types of shows. Would do Dixie again in a heartbeat but both locations I went to closed and I love medieval times.
