When visiting Anna Maria Island there are certain places you need to visit. Of course there's shopping on Pine Avenue, a meal at Ginny & Jane E's and the iconic Rod & Reel Pier. We found it highly recommended by locals and reviewers on TripAdvisor alike. It is...
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.
