Florida Was Named One Of The Best BBQ Destinations In The Entire U.S.

When you think of the places with the best barbecue, a few states probably come to mind, like Texas, Tennessee, and the Carolinas. Florida probably never crossed your mind, right?

We did a little investigating, and it turns out TripAdvisor released a list of the states serving up America’s best barbecue last summer.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
