When we found Pane E Vino, we didn't know it would be one of the best restaurants in Melbourne. In fact, it is one of the best restaurants we have encountered. Certainly it is the best Italian cuisine we have come across in our travels. It all started when we were looking for someplace new to...
You know, we all scream for ice cream. And recently we had an opportunity to make a sweet stop for some ice cream in Englewood. It was a place I'd wanted to visit for a while. Made in the Shade Ice Cream was one of our first followers on Instagram and always has been faithful in...
We were sitting around planning our next adventure when we started to consider what we love about Florida. And the answer is - quite a lot. At first we tried to prioritize our list. But that turned out to be a fool's errand. So instead, we thought we'd present them here in no particular order. Sunrises...
This is the start of Tourism Week in Florida. It is also the first time in two months the restaurants have been open for sit down dining. We decided to celebrate both occasions with a trip to Winter Haven to enjoy Bistro Pizza. We have blogged about this place in the past. It was...

Drive-in theaters are enjoying a renaissance. Heck we even see drive-in churches popping up. The governor has closed all the restaurants and bars to...
While the Coronavirus has just about everything shut down, we decided to take a look at Florida Tourism. It appears to us that a lot of it is planes, trains and automobiles. Over the course of our travels, we have visited a number of places that fit this bill. We thought you'd like to look back on...

We have several go-to places when we want to dine in Sarasota. One place we always know we can get a great lunch is at Newk's Eatery. Nestled in University Park - it's one of only three in the Sunshine State. The others are in Clearwater and Palm Beach Gardens respectively. What attracted us was...
