Old Town USA in Kissimmee, ride down the road from Walt Disney World, is always a fun little attraction with restaurants, shopping, and even its own year ’round haunted attraction, Legends: A Haunting at Old Town (read more about it in this article). On Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights things really start hopping with muscle cars that cruise in every Friday, starting at 4 p.m., and classic cars that converge on Old Town starting at 1 p.m. on Saturdays.
If you’re more into motorcycles, they come to Old Town USA on Thursdays, while Sundays are all about show-quality SUVs, trucks, and Jeeps, starting at 4 p.m.
The classic cars are all models from 1979 and older, including hot rods, street rods, and even antiques. The muscle cars are American-made street machines from 1964 and newer, as well as classics from 1988 and older.
Old Town USA also features music and a cruise-in on Wednesday nights, when The Dukes take the stage at 6 p.m. with oldies from the 1950s and 1960s. The entertainment and car shows are all free. It’s rare to find entertainment in the Orlando area that doesn’t have an admission charge, so it’s a great way to spend a little time away from the theme parks and give your wallet a break.
Of course, you might find fun souvenirs at some of the shops, and Old Town USA has a variety of restaurants if you stick around for dinner. Read about a fun dining spot in this article. You might even have a chance to catch Remy Connor’s magic show. See it on video here.

The cars start lining up early at Old Town USA for both the classic and muscle car events. Old Town is located in 192 (Irlo Bronson Memorial Highway), just off I-4, so it’s very easy to find.
Depending on your age, the classic car event might just make you feel a little long in the tooth. I saw cars that I recognized from their original eras. Now they’re considered “classics” and “antiques!”
You’ll love the colorful cars and custom paint jobs that show up for the Old Town USA events. Bring your camera, as you’re sure to want to grab some photos while you stroll the aisles.
Out of the Movies
While I know this car is different, it reminds me of the car in “American Graffiti.” You’ll feel like you’ve stepped into a movie, or at least a time machine back to the 1950s and ’60s, at the classic and muscle car shows.
