Each time we visit DeLand we find some new and really fun places. This time it was a cool little restaurant called Dick & Jane's. Like many of the fun and funky places The Lord sets across our path, this is more than an eatery, it's also an artsy curio shop with a great...
On a recent trip to Anna Maria Island we were looking for a good breakfast. Everyone pointed us to Ginny & Jane E's. Our stop there vaulted it into the next round for our top Florida breakfast locations. Officially, it's known as Ginny & Jane E's at...
So we first tried Dimitri's on the Water in Tarpon Springs last November when we were there for Thanksgiving. This time however, we were staying off site as we'd been invited to a reception for the Tampa Boat Show. With all due respect, we didn't want to stay in The Big Guava - and Tarpon...

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. ...
