War Veterans Monument Kissimmee - Monuments and Historic Buildings
When you think Kissimmee, your first thought might be Mickey’s neighbor, but there’s more to this tourist town than just alligators and Disney outlet stores. The Downtown and Lakeshore area have a rich history of landmarks and historical monuments, including the War Veterans Monument.
Located at the west corner of Lakeshore Boulevard and Monument Avenue in Kissimmee, the War Veterans Monument is a large obelisk created to pay tribute to the veterans of World War I, World War II and the Korean and Vietnam wars.
Situated among Kissimmee’s many other monuments, it’s a great visit for tourists looking for a relaxing break from Orlando’s theme park mania. Other notable points of interest include Kissimmee’s Monument of States and the American Legion Home. The monument is open daily and admission is free to the public. Parking is generally plentiful and free, as well.
