When we visited the old Cypress Gardens, one of our most memorable experiences was watching the ski show. But after the Gardens became Legoland in 2011, we were saddened that the show would "never be the same." However, as fortune would have it, the Cypress Gardens ski team lives on.
When last we visited Anna Maria Island, we were at Bradenton Beach and found Joe's Eats & Sweets. It's an absolute destination location and Joe's is as much fun on the inside as it is on the outside. They are quick to tell you at Joe's...

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...
