We have been in Frostproof before and when we heard there was a Valentine's street dance going on, it called for a return visit. This tiny hamlet in Polk County is known as "The Friendly City and it's easy to see why. When we arrived, the sun had set, Wall Street was blocked off,...
As we turn our eyes to the advent of St. Patrick's' Day, Irish cuisine is on the horizon. On a recent trip to Melbourne we spotted Meg O'Malley's Restaurant & Irish Pub - it may well have been the highlight of our downtown experience.
We had the opportunity to visit Dade City just in time for their Kumquat Festival this past January. There literally were hundreds of vendors and thousands of people packing the streets of this tiny burg for this annual event. City blocks were sealed off for the double rows of 10x10 pop-up...
Krazy Good Greek In amongst the orange groves of central Florida lies some of the best Greek food you will ever taste. The restaurant itself is tucked in a single bay of a strip shopping center along Cypress Gardens Boulevard. It would be easy to miss unless you...

The display at Wickham Park is held annually to benefits the local Boy Scout troop - which is just another reason...

This week, the Historic Sportscar Racing Classic 12 Hour at Sebring, Pistons and Props, presented by the Alan Jay Automotive Network will return to the track there for the third straight year. Pistons and...
This Thanksgiving we ventured to Tarpon Springs. It is the Grecian capitol of Florida and the Sponge Capital of the World. As most people know, the restaurant world virtually closes to the public on Thanksgiving day as the bulk of the population gathers for family time and football.
