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,...
It has been there on South Orange Avenue in Sarasota for the past seven years - but this was our first time dining at Fresh Start. I must tell you it's a hidden gem. We love Sarasota and generally go for the Saturday farmer's market. But there's also the...
We had the opportunity to visit the Lightfest in Melbourne and what a wonderful experience it was. There were a reported three million lights sprinkled over hundreds of displays - some of them moving and others that were static. The display at Wickham Park is held annually to benefits the local Boy Scout troop - which is just another reason...
For all the years we have lived in Florida I never really knew much about Eau Gallie. I knew it was a town someplace but I never knew exactly where it was. We recently found out when we went to Melbourne and attended their First Friday celebration. Eau Gallie in fact is not a town – but the arts district...
  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...
National Picnic Day is coming up, so we decided to go and have a real Florida picnic in preparation to blog about this blessed event. We had seen an old fashioned hoedown near Bartow - and had planned to attend it. However, after hours of searching (it seems our...
Mosquito County Tours is a business that is going places. We blogged in the past about Mandy Longo's creation when we first discovered it. Since that time we have tried to make a weekend where we could get together and try a tour for ourselves. Earlier this month, the...
We have stayed at a couple of Best Western Motels in the past. There even were a couple of former Best Westerns that had been converted under the Baymont flag. For the most part they were OK, but in the long run were not that great. Our stay at...
We always love the fun and excitement of the Sebring International Raceway. It's hard to beat the sights and sounds of a road race there.  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...
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...
