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

So we were on our way to wonderful Wabasso, when we spotted Rock City Gardens on Highway 1 - just north of Vero Beach. It looked fairly interesting from the road, but until we reviewed our "Things to Do," on TripAdvisor, we didn't know it qualified as an attraction. ...
Recently we visited Maderia Beach and had the opportunity to spend a day at John's Pass Village & Boardwalk. We discovered what many have known for years. This place is a great compendium of shopping, dining and entertainment experiences. In all, we counted more than 100 different...
As you may, or may not, know - September is Bourbon Heritage month. And there's still time to celebrate! When it comes to Bourbon whiskey many folks don't know that the Sunshine State offers you a lot of options.  We have had the opportunity to visit some...
We had seen the Ron Jon's Surf Shop billboards for years. So when we visited Cocoa Beach, we decided to pay them a visit. Even if you are not a surfer yourself, you have to be blown away. If nothing else, by the sheer volume and scope of their inventory. ...
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...
We can hear it now - "Where's Wabasso?" Nestled between Sebastian and Vero Beach along the fabled Treasure Coast is the hamlet of Wabasso. 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,...
Over the course of our travels, we've found the beaches of the Suncoast are difficult to beat. From Fort Myers to Sarasota there's a nearly continuous stretch of white sand and blue water. The beaches are teeming with shells, sharks teeth, fun and sun. On a recent trip,...
