Down in Nokomis is the Gulf Shores Beach Resort Motel - this is not your typical lodging. We found it a delightful throwback to old Florida in many ways. The Motel To our delight, Gulf Shores Beach Resort actually boasts dual waterfronts. There is a private beach along the Gulf of Mexico and a...
So we were in Crystal River when we had our first BubbaQue's experience. Actually, we were shopping in the Heritage Village section when we saw the brightly colored "BubbaQue's - Real Pit Grillin' "sign encouraging us to stop by for lunch. And we were ready for some lunch (it was way past time). So we decided...
We have been to some of Florida's fun and funky shopping areas in the past. For us, Crystal River's Heritage Village is as good as any. As we pointed out, our lodging at the Crystal Manatee was a great place to start. It is close to King's Bay and the Three Sisters Springs as well...
When we read the reviews of The Biscuit Barn, little did we know we were about to be treated to the best biscuits in Florida. We have read rave reviews before, however, upon our arrival the food was good but not great. This time we were more than pleasantly surprised. It was on our recent...
I must say, the Retreat at Crystal Manatee is one of the most comfortable and accessible lodgings we've found since we started traveling. We literally were two blocks from Kings Bay and only a few more to the Crystal River Historic Shopping District. Plus it had great creature comforts In addition, the Retreat at...
Those who follow us know we like to explore the Sunshine State for the fun and funky. However, sometimes we just want to take a safe Florida vacation where we have some old favorites and don't have to worry. Such was our last foray over to the Gulf. We booked a couple of nights at...
On our most recent visit, we found that Cafe 66 is a wonderful option for breakfast in Vero Beach. As always, we turned to the experts and asked our friends at Vero Beach Foodie for a recommendation. I have to tell you, the responses came quickly. We reviewed them, did a little online review and...
Over our last few visits, we have found there are lots of things to do in Vero Beach. So, recently we decided to return. After no small amount of research, we decided again to stay at the Prestige Hotel. Although their ocean view rooms were a bit past our pricepoint, we were able to get a room...
We always like to find new experiences and Nokomo's Sunset Hut in Nokomis was a very pleasant surprise. Actually, we discovered this place during our stay at the Bentley Botique Hotel. We were looking for a late night snack in the area and this was the only place that still was open at the time. I...
As we travel to different areas, we try to find out a bit about the region. On our most recent trip to Vero Beach we discovered the Indian River Citrus Museum - a great little place that was fun and jam-packed with information. The official name is the "Heritage Center and Indian River Citrus Museum."...
