It's been months in the making. Now, like a butterfly, Seven-The Sebring Raceway Hotel has emerged just in time for Race Week. The place was painted Sebring Blue earlier this year. The entrance sign now beckons visitors. The hotel was christened just in time for the beginning of...
  We had the opportunity to visit Dade City just in time for their Kumquat Festival this past January. There literally were hundreds of vendors and thousands of people packing the streets of this tiny burg for this annual event. City blocks were sealed off for the double rows of 10x10 pop-up...
   Perched along US 27 in the small central Florida community of Dundee, Davidson of Dundee is a wonderful attraction with great citrus candy. It also is a tasty throwback to the roadside stops of the Sunshine State in the 1950s and 60s. It is a simple layout, a single floor with rows and rows of candies, jams and...
For all the years we have lived in Florida I never really knew much about Eau Gallie. I knew it was a town someplace but I never knew exactly where it was.

   If you like garlic, the annual South Florida Garlic Festival is the place for you. As food-oriented festivals go it was as inventive as any and better than most.   We took a Saturday out of the 3-day festival to see the sights and enjoy the cuisine.   By far the most impressive feature was the NBG - or,...
