It appears the experience you get when you visit the Village of the Arts in Bradenton depends on when you go. We recently visited Cortez and decided to take in a side trip to VOTA as it's called. It was a Friday afternoon about 2:00. It was plenty of time, we thought, for even artists...
We'd always heard about the St John's River, but never visited. This past weekend changed all that. Earlier we blogged about our trip to Deland. That was a great time and we vowed to return. As we made good on our pledge it led us to the St John's River,...
In the past, we had seen numerous posts about the charming fishing village of Cortez. So when we went to the Gulf coast recently, we decided to make a stop there and have a look around. According to the latest census, there are fewer than 5,000 people in...

Although it seems small as you drive through the single stoplight at the intersection of US Highway 1 and State Road 510, the area considered Wabasso covers quite a bit...
When in Punta Gorda, we found that a stop by Fishermen's Village is a must. In short, it's a resort, marina, shopping area and entertainment complex rolled into one. We have visited Punta Gorda in the past, but only have blogged about their wonderful historic section. That being said,...
So I was scrolling through my Facebook page and one of my friends had posted they were at the TooJay's Deli and Restaurant in Orlando. Earlier, we did a story about First Watch as a go-to place for breakfast. In that same way, TooJay's is our go-to place for go to deli food.
