We have written about Deland in the past. Recently, we found a little community nestled inside their Historic downtown. Dubbed "Artisan Alley," it is dotted with interesting shops, restaurants and clubs that are in a three block area just off the beaten Path. The sign that says you're in...
So we were on our way to wonderful Wabasso, when we spotted Rock City Gardens on Highway 1 - just north of Vero Beach. It looked fairly interesting from the road, but until we reviewed our "Things to Do," on TripAdvisor, we didn't know it qualified as an attraction. ...
Anyone who follows us, knows we have stayed in many hotel rooms, but recently we had the opportunity to enjoy a condo vacation - at beautiful Anna Maria Island no less. Sandy Hampton contacted us and offered to let us try her condo at the Bradenton Beach Club. Unit...
We were on one of our many forays to Florida's Atlantic Coast when we came across Waldo's at the Historic Driftwood Resort. Located in Vero Beach along the beautiful Treasure Coast, it was a wonderful experience in more ways than one. We first wrote about Waldo's Restaurant...
Recently we visited Maderia Beach and had the opportunity to spend a day at John's Pass Village & Boardwalk. We discovered what many have known for years. This place is a great compendium of shopping, dining and entertainment experiences. In all, we counted more than 100 different...
We were in Deland for their weekly farmer's market and discovered Bake Chop. This probably was the most rewarding dining experience we've had since finding Cafe Evergreen in Nokomis. Artisan Alley is a narrow way just off West Georgia Avenue Don't Blink or You'll Miss...
We had seen the Ron Jon's Surf Shop billboards for years. So when we visited Cocoa Beach, we decided to pay them a visit. Even if you are not a surfer yourself, you have to be blown away. If nothing else, by the sheer volume and scope of their inventory. ...
We found the Ovation Bistro & Bar first while looking for a place to eat near I-4. This one was in Davenport. It was mid afternoon and we ended up having a late lunch. It was a nice place, a lot of dark wood and leather, with an...
It appears the experience you get when you visit the Village of the Arts in Bradenton depends on when you go. We recently visited Cortez and decided to take in a side trip to VOTA as it's called. It was a Friday afternoon about 2:00. It was plenty of time, we thought, for even artists...
We'd always heard about the St. John's River, but never visited. This past weekend changed all that. Earlier we blogged about our trip to Deland. That was a great time and we vowed to return. As we made good on our pledge it led us to the St. John's River,...
