Quaint, Old Florida Atmosphere and Antique Shops in Micanopy

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.

Things to do in Orlando Florida: Jungle Adventures Animal Park

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.

Third in my series about North America's "oldest city", St. Augustine, FL. Interesting photos from around town with historical tidbits such as the Love Trees, Ripley's Believe It Or NoT!, the Freedom Trail from the Civil Rights Movement and shots of charming cobblestoned streets.
