Welcome to Orchid Place in Kissimmee, Florida.  We are from a small community in northwestern Illinois, where the summers are hot, and the winters are very cold! We are both retired elementary school teachers who have enjoyed visiting Florida during the cold months in Illinois. In November 2010, we decided the time was right to purchase our very first vacation home in Florida. We established Orchid Place not only because we wanted a winter getaway but also to share with you. So come on down...and see the orchids!
