Cool and fascinating travel locations to enjoy in the Sunshine State including attractions, interesting spots and natural phenomenon

The city of Arcadia has positioned itself as center for antiques in Florida. We found a lot of quaint little shops there, but the Bizarre Bazaar is an antique store with an unusual atmosphere. We discovered it on the second floor of the Arcadia Opera house. Those who follow us know we like the fun and...
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...
We were looking for fun things to do in Vero Beach on our last trip there. In our past visits we'd seen McKee Botanical Gardens but never had visited. This time we vowed to give it a try. At 18 acres, it's a lot smaller than we had anticipated. Apparently, it originally had been much...
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 may have found one of the best Florida tourist attractions just south of Clermont. Oh yes, we had seen the Showcase of Citrus countless times as we have driven on Highway 27. But we stopped in recently and realized how much we had been missing. This place is a look at the real Florida and...
Whether or not you have a gun - or are a shooter - the Center Mass Gun Range in Okeechobee may be the best shooting range in Florida. And we recommend it for young and old alike. Those who follow us know we like the fun and funky. This place may not be...

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."...
We have seen the Visit Central Florida posts on our Facebook feed for years. Recently we had a chance to visit the actual Visit Central Florida Visitor's Center itself. We discovered the rustic brown visitor information center just off Highway 27 in Davenport. Located half way between Tampa and Orlando off I-4, it's a handy...
Several months ago we were making arrangements to take one of the offerings of Discover Sarasota Tours. Then the Coronavirus outbreak took hold and things came to a screeching halt. All tours were put on hold until further notice. However, it now appears further notice finally has arrived. We have learned...
