Welcome to the Florida Aquarium.

Forever Florida is a beautiful working ranch that keeps increasing in size. About 45,000 acres currently. The owners have a serious knowledge of Florida's biodiversity and are continually working to restore the land to its original condition. Fantastic comparisons. Home to various animals including Cracker Cattle and a Petting Zoo. You'll also find a nice restaurant, gift shop, horseback riding and buggy tours. Whooping Cranes are now located in the vicinity- this is a great day trip.

Central Florida's East Coast Beaches from the Orlando Sentinel's Calendar.
New Smyrna (just south of Daytona) and north of Titusville was our most recent beach destination and they have really invested in the waterfront over the last few years. Once reaching the resort area the road bends to the right to parallel the ocean. From there you can turn left to reach Flagler blvd. where you'll find unique shops, a public parking area, bathrooms and a sort of mini-boardwalk or continue your course to 27th street where there is a parking area, picnic tables, bathrooms and showers to rinse the sand off before the return trip. A new Boston's Fish House just opened. Made famous in Orlando's Winter Park for good reason. The food and price are rarely matched.

A short cruise (5-7 miles out) is yours free, compliments of Florida's largest casino ship Sterling Casino. We are told that a two dollar roll of nickels allows free eats and drink. This is a great primer for those longer trips which reminds me. A tourist remarked that the stewards on Disney's ship Wonder represented different nations 'cept "there wasn't any American representation". She was wrong of course, it's just that the Americans are all in the boiler room.

Adults and kids alike love the innertube (or boats for those that don't swim well) trips down Ichetucknee Springs. Located just outside of Gainesville. The State Park stretches along the spring fed Ichetucknee River, about fifteen miles north of High Springs which is rated as one of the country's friendliest small towns. Watch your timing as the gates close early when the park reaches capacity.
