Quick Off-The-Road Clearwater Adventure

Clearwater Memorial Causeway Side Trip With ample waterfront, there are great stops just off the road in Clearwater, Florida that are easy to miss if you’re not looking for them. This trip was a Christmas morning excursion when we decided to take a leisurely drive down the beach before joining family for festivities. We decided […]

Juniper Springs (Ocala National Fore...

Tucked away in the Ocala National Forest is Juniper Springs. Is it better than the beaches? I would say so! Juniper Springs is a slice of paradise away from the touristy beaches and is a hidden treasure. Juniper Springs is a must-see when visiting Florida. Entering the Park There is a minimal $5.00 per person fee to enter the […]

The Belleair Cause...

Universal Studios Orlando

Universal Studies Orlando If you are a fan of movies, Universal Studies will likely have something to suit your fancy, especially if that movie you like is Harry Potter.

Camping at E. G. Simmons Park

Getting Started My family decided to have a family camping trip to E. G. Simmons Park in Hillsborough County, Florida over Easter. It’s a less popular campsite so we didn’t have to make camping reservations months ahead of time and as an added perk, it’s dog friendly. We arrived on Good Friday, early in the […]

Maximo Park, St. Petersburg, Flor...

After picking up coffee from Kahwa, we decided to explore Maximo Park, a quaint waterfront park located in St. Petersburg, just before the Sunshine Skyway Bridge. At first, we were debating not even getting out of the car. Our first impression was that the park was going to just be a few shelters with a […]

Dog Bone ...

Dog Bone Run

Tucked behind a plaza just off of Seminole Boulevard is Dog Bone Run. It’s a quaint fenced-in dog park in a quiet neighborhood that is open to both big and small breeds, so long as they are friendly. This is especially nice if you have both a small and large breed, like we do! Dog Bone Run […]

Honeymoon Island State Park

First Visit – Marine Biology  The first time I went to Honeymoon Island I was with my college marine biology class. We made the trip for a “lab” assignment (clearly our labs were terribly difficult) and the class met up to take a hike. Literally. We took a hike. While waiting for the everyone to […]

Philippe P...

Philippe Park 13 May 2015 Philippe Park is an exquisite departure from the usual parks in Pinellas.  It’s tucked away in Safety Harbor, Florida, on the waterfront, almost like a well kept secret that the locals would rather you didn’t know about. Pinellas County has a lot of parks. While some are larger and have […]
