Those wishing to spend a Saturday in Sarasota can have quite a bit of fun. We found a myriad of different things to see, do and experience. And, at relatively low prices.   Mrs Funmeister and myself recently packed up the wagon and headed out to the city by the Gulf for a bit of shopping and relaxation. The Farmer's...
  During the winter months, a trip to Siesta Key can be a bit of a pricey affair. But in the off season, it can be a nice little trip. Especially if you don't mind being back from the beach a bit and traveling in for your Gulf Experience. Unless you have booked a beachside resort, condo or hotel room,...
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, It was one of the most...
In our many visits to Sarasota we had driven by the Marietta Museum of Art & Whimsy. But we never had stopped in to see it. When we did, we found it was fun at its best. When you look up the word eclectic, this is the picture they would show you. The Outside The...
Like the title says - you know citrus season is here when the oranges arrive at Maxwell Groves. In the sleepy little hamlet of Avon Park sits a small packing house known as Maxwell Groves. It is one of the hidden gems of Central Florida and one of the last vestiges of the old-time citrus...
We have visited many man-made places since we "stopped waiting for when." However, one venue we never really experienced is God's creation - Florida's great outdoors. Recently we solved that with a visit to the Highlands Hammock State Park. Located just west of Sebring, Highlands Hammock is the first state park created by the Civilian...
There are lots of fun specialty shops along the Gulf coast. One of our great finds is the Ukulele Place. We discovered it tucked in behind the Breakfast Cottage in Nokomis. The first time I tried the door the place was closed. But the webpage has a warning that the owners might well be...
  It had been nearly six decades since I had been to Weeki Wachee Springs to see the mermaids. So when we saw that they were having a special Christmas presentation that made up our minds for a return visit.   Those who follow us know we like to take the back roads when we head out. That generally means...
We always look forward to December. It's when the Alan Jay Classic 12 comes to the Sebring International Raceway. Those who follow us know we like airplanes and Sebring also is one of our favorite sports car race courses. And we're not alone. The 12 Hours of Sebring recently topped the 10best list as the Number One...
When visiting Anna Maria Island there are certain places you need to visit. Of course there's shopping on Pine Avenue, a meal at Ginny & Jane E's and the iconic Rod & Reel Pier. We found it highly recommended by locals and reviewers on TripAdvisor alike. It is the essence of AMI - that...
