If you have ever wanted to have dinner in the treetops - dining at Norwood's is for you. Having found this gem in New Smyrna Beach several years ago, we'd wanted to get around to blogging it. But seeing as how this year will mark there 75th anniversary, we just couldn't wait any longer. The location has been one kind...
We found Oscar Scherer State Park almost directly across the street from Bentley's Boutique Hotel in Osprey. We'd seen the signs on previous visits, but hadn't had the time to visit. It was not our first Florida state park. In the past, we explored Highlands Hammock State Park - a sprawling facility in Highlands County. However, at almost 1400 acres...
While looking for a great breakfast in Venice recently, we rediscovered the Original Word of Mouth. Actually, we'd found this place once before - the first time we visited "The Sharktooth Capital of the World." And just like the first time, we had a wonderful experience. The Restaurant The Venice location is the second Original Word of Mouth, causing me to...
When looking for fun things to do in New Smyrna Beach, a trip to the drug store was not high on our list. Then, we found the Little Drug Company - and that all changed. We found tons of cool things and a vintage soda fountain to boot! The Little Drug Company has been in business for nearly a century. ...
We always are looking for a good breakfast and we found one in Osprey at A Good Day Cafe. Their slogan is "A Good Day Starts Here" and as far as we're concerned, they're right. Actually, we found this little gem tucked in the corner of the Blackburn Point shopping center just off Tamiami Trail. It's the kind of place...
Down in Nokomis is the Gulf Shores Beach Resort Motel - this is not your typical lodging. We found it a delightful throwback to old Florida in many ways. The Motel To our delight, Gulf Shores Beach Resort actually boasts dual waterfronts. There is a private beach along the Gulf of Mexico and a...
So we were in Crystal River when we had our first BubbaQue's experience. Actually, we were shopping in the Heritage Village section when we saw the brightly colored "BubbaQue's - Real Pit Grillin' "sign encouraging us to stop by for lunch. And we were ready for some lunch (it was way past time). So we decided...
We have been to some of Florida's fun and funky shopping areas in the past. For us, Crystal River's Heritage Village is as good as any. As we pointed out, our lodging at the Crystal Manatee was a great place to start. It is close to King's Bay and the Three Sisters Springs as well...
When we read the reviews of The Biscuit Barn, little did we know we were about to be treated to the best biscuits in Florida. We have read rave reviews before, however, upon our arrival the food was good but not great. This time we were more than pleasantly surprised. It was on our recent...
I must say, the Retreat at Crystal Manatee is one of the most comfortable and accessible lodgings we've found since we started traveling. We literally were two blocks from Kings Bay and only a few more to the Crystal River Historic Shopping District. Plus it had great creature comforts In addition, the Retreat at...
