We love to find hidden gems - and The Florida Air Museum certainly is one of those. Tucked in on the grounds of the Lakeland Linder Airport, it is a small complex with a wide array of aircraft. When you first arrive, you'll note the area is dotted by...
We had read about Bob's Train. It is a restaurant in a railway car, tucked away in a Sarasota industrial park. I must admit, it was no small feat to find the place. We had been cautioned some GPS might not be able to find it - ours was one of them.
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...
Recently while at the Sebring Regional Airport, we decided to catch breakfast at the Runway Cafe. Yes, we have heard the stories of airport food. Obviously, those folks have never stopped at this quaint little place. The Sebring Regional Airport might not be the largest in the Sunshine State,...
Deep in the heart of Hardee County lies Solomon's Castle. The complex of buildings is the dream of one man - Howard Sanford Solomon. There have been lots of blogs about this place. Some call it "odd" or "weird." However, we are here to tell you that those words do not begin to do justice...
Recently we blogged about our trip to Delray Beach and their Green market. The experience inspired us to go back to the Sarasota Farmers' Market for what we think is probably the best of its kind in the State of Florida. At 40-years old, it certainly is one of the longest-lived in the Sunshine...
We were shocked and saddened when we heard the news. Osceola County's Desert Inn had been demolished in an accident. Word reached us while we were vacationing in Boca Raton. Apparently it happened in the early morning hours. A tractor-trailer rig, ironically carrying orange juice, left the road and ran head-on into the building. ...
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.
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...
When we vacation we go to a lot of places that have funky and fun themes, but the food does not live up to the atmosphere. However, the Island Cow on Sanibel Island is an absolute exception. Sanibel is one of the Gulf coast communities that is just...
