Just a few pics from our visit to Indialantic, Florida in 2003.
Of course Disney isn’t the only game in town in Orlando – especially these days. Back when we lived there in 2003 the primary competition was Universal Studios. We lived less than 10 miles from Disney World though so we only actually made it to City Walk at Universal once – for our wedding anniversary : )
Here are a few photos from that visit.
Another small gallery from a trip my family made to Anna Maria Island on Florida’s Gulf Coast when we lived in Central Florida.
A few photos from a quick trip my family made to St. Petersburg, Florida when we lived in central Florida in 2003.
One day, while driving around exploring central Florida, my family came across a sign for a “Renaissance Faire” in Clermont, FL. We had never attended an event like this and decided “Why not”? My son had recently started playing the Mandolin and we thought this might be really interesting for him.
It turned out that it was a great event that the whole family enjoyed. I don’t know if this community still holds the event, I believe this was their first year, but I know the band we fell in love with there still travels and performs. Their name is “The Empty Hats” and you can learn more about them at their website: emptyhats.com Check them out!!
Ponce de Leon Inlet Lighthouse [ponceinlet.org] is Florida’s tallest lighthouse (second tallest in the country) and is a designated National Historic Landmark. It’s located close to Daytona Beach and Orlando so you should consider adding it to your itinerary when you visit these locations.
My photo gallery includes pictures of the lighthouse, the famous Fresnel Lenses and the grounds which include a wonderful little museum.
My photos from our families visit to Lake Kissimmee State Park located near Lake Wales, Florida.
One of my favorite places to visit in Central Florida is the stunning Bok Tower Gardens. This is a National Historic Landmark located in Lake Wales.
We lived a few miles from Walt Disney World during the years of 2000 – 2003.
Needless to say, since our family included 2 kids, we spent a lot of time at Downtown Disney. This was our choice for entertainment anytime we didn’t have anything else to do.
