Christmas in Florida

Wednesday, December 15th, 2010

Christmas is a wonderful time to visit Florida, be it in Amelia Island or Key West, Tallahassee or Naples. Florida Bed and Breakfasts across the state welcome old friends and new during this special time.

There is snow in Orlando (only in designated areas of course) and a holiday light show at the Miami Seaquarium. There are walking and garden tours in historic Naples, and a St. Nick Open Golf Tournament in St. Petersburg. Historic St. Augustine is lit by more than two million tiny white lights each night – the perfect place to stroll with the person you love.

Christmas means beach parties in Key West and dancing in Miami. It means karaoke and theatre performances in Sarasota. Christmas means tours of festively decorated holiday homes in Ormond Beach and Deland, and ice skating with Santa in Daytona.

If you’re looking for something different this holiday season, head to Florida for Christmas. Instead of plowing the driveway on Christmas day, take a long walk on the beach. Instead of skiing, swim. Give yourself a gift this year: vacation in a Bed and Breakfast Florida.

SeaWorld is amazing.

There are a number of quiet towns on the outskirts of Orlando, in Central East Florida. When planning a trip to Orlando bed and breakfast, consider one located outside of town; it’s a wonderful way to experience all the Orlando area has to offer.

And that is plenty. SeaWorld presents incredible shows that display the intelligence and beauty of orca whales, sea lions, dolphins and a variety of other animals, from pot-bellied pigs to tropical birds. It features thrilling rides and numerous restaurants, and is something to experience, at least once in a lifetime. The same goes for DisneyWorld and Epcot Center. If you have never been, go. Spend a day marveling at these theme parks. Then return to the luxury and peace of an Orlando area bed and breakfast. (more…)

Central Florida Wineries

Thursday, June 3rd, 2010

Spanish settlers who first came to the Florida region were struck by the abundance of wild grapes. It seemed to them that this place must be perfect for cultivating wine. Word spread, and more settlers came from Spain and France, with the intention of making wine. They were successful, and the first wine was consumed in 1565.

Today there are only a handful of Florida wineries throughout the state. It can be hard to find these wines, but trust me, they are worth seeking. Most Florida wines include some of the native grapes that first enticed the French and Spanish settlers to produce wines in the first place, such as the Muscadine, Noble and Scuppernong. Ask the innkeepers at your bed and breakfast Central East Florida if they have ever tasted Florida wine. (more…)
