In the past we have stayed at many chain hotels. Most of the time we had flags we trusted where we also could earn points. However, lately we have tried some boutique hotels. The latest is the Inn at the Beach Venice - which proved to be a wonderful experience.
We were in Cape Coral recently and stumbled upon the Wicked Dolphin Distillery. This is not the first distillery we have visited in Florida. We have taken a tour through the St. Augustine Distillery and also have visited Timber Creek in the Panhandle and the fledgling Sugar Sand Distillery near Lake Placid.

So we were on our way to wonderful Wabasso, when we spotted Rock City Gardens on Highway 1 - just north of Vero Beach. It looked fairly interesting from the road, but until we reviewed our "Things to Do," on TripAdvisor, we didn't know it qualified as an attraction. ...
