Civic Center EATS – a Benefit Gathering of Food Trucks in Denver

Civic Center EATS is a gathering of food trucks near Denver's Capitol and courthouse. Each summer you can get your gourmet lunch from one of more than 20 food trucks parked in Civic Center Park Tuesday through Thursday. It's hard to choose only one cuisine: BBQ, Korean, Peruvian, New Orleans, coffee, ice cream, desserts, Columbian, Thai, Chinese, you name it! The event benefits the Civic Center Conservancy and you can't find a more delicious meal in Colorado.

Denver Botanic Garden and Spring Plant Sale

I visited the Denver Botanic Gardens next to Cheesman Park in Colorado on a lovely spring day. They were having their spring plant sale and I got a hint of all the wonderful western, international and water gardens there.

Things to Do in Tampa Bay Florida: Cypress Point Park Plane Flyovers

Kids will love an outing to Cypress Point Park on Tampa Bay Florida. It's right in the approach path to Tampa International Airport and the planes fly quite low and directly over this park. It's a great picnic venue with built-in entertainment, plus it's on the water in a fairly quiet area (if you don't count the jet engine noise).

Things to do in Orlando Florida: Jungle Adventures Animal Park + Lemon Mousseline Dessert How-To

Another in my series of what to do with out-of-town visitors near Tampa Bay, Florida. In Christmas, FL, Jungle Adventures is a little farther afield than most of my destinations, but well worth a visit. Live gators, panthers, peacocks, tortoises - you name it. The staff is enthusiastic and the building is unforgettable.
