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

We have visited Melbourne twice. The first time was on a whim when we decided the Space Coast was calling our name. On that foray, we discovered Eau Gallie - much to our delight. The second time, we went to attend an Easter Sunrise service at Hightower Beach. We...
For the past few years we have tried to search out a great place to celebrate Easter. We have been to several Sunrise Services, but none have paralleled the one we attended on The Space Coast. Celebrating the Resurrection of our Savior on the shores at Satellite Beach was...
National picnic day is coming up, so we decided to go and have an outside lunch in preparation to blog about this blessed event. We had seen an old fashioned hoedown near Bartow - and had planned to attend it. However, after hours of searching (it seems our satellite...
No, we didn't go to a seafood restaurant, we took some time to venture down to Port Charlotte. Where we saw the home opener of the Charlotte Stone Crabs minor league baseball team. We have seen the Florida Firefrogs, the Jupiter Hammerheads and the Lakeland Flying Tigers. So...
Most Polk County residents know Bartow as the county seat. Some travelers may think that Bartow is the section of town where Florida Highway 60 and US 98 come together. However, just off that main thoroughfare is a quaint little section of town that is rife with interesting little shops and delicious eateries.
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. We recently found out when we went to Melbourne and attended their First Friday celebration. Eau Gallie in fact is not a town – but the arts district...
  As the summer ends the annual baking of central Florida, action heats up at the Sebring International Raceway - but it won't all be on the track. Oh, there will be plenty of cars on the circuit over the next 120 days or so, but officials at SIR have at least one festival for those who just want...
