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

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....
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...
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...
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...

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....
There are lots of fun specialty shops along the Gulf coast. One of our great finds is the Ukulele Place. We discovered it tucked in behind the Breakfast Cottage in Nokomis. The first time I tried the door the place was closed. But the webpage has a warning...
We have just learned that Florida Fun Travel has topped 200,000 views since our inception three short years ago. It was at the end of last year that we hit another milestone - 100,000 unique visits. Both those numbers are for us both huge and humbling. When we started...
