About two hours from Tampa Bay or Orlando, Micanopy's numerous antique shops reside in a quaint, old-Florida neighborhood under a canopy of Spanish moss. A couple of nice places to eat and a stroll amid whatnots from days gone by is a nice break from the hubbub of the big city and the amusement parks.
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).
