What are some of the best Florida foods?

Living in Florida is oh-so-delicious (same goes if you’re just visiting). If you live in Florida, you probably have quite a few foods that you absolutely love. An iconic Florida food, for example, is undoubtedly, oranges and any variation of them, like orange juice and smoothies. Trying to stay cool means a lot more than hiding out in the A/C or jumping into the ocean. It also means treating our sweet tooth to such deliciousness as ice cream cones and frozen yogurt. A cool drink usually hits the spot, too, doesn’t it? Some of our favorites are, undoubtedly, margaritas and mojitos. Both cool cocktails pair perfectly with some of Florida’s favorite foods, (which you can find in the best food towns in Florida).  Which is your favorite – the seafood, barbecue, or a classic Cubano?

What are some of the best things to do in Florida?

If you’re visiting Florida, you’re in for a whole lot of good eating. However, you’ll have to find fun things to do in Florida when you’re not eating. How about a day at the beach? We certainly are spoiled for choices when it comes to where we want to go sunbathing and swimming in the cool ocean water. Florida’s beaches are some of the most beautiful in the world. Avoid the massive crowds by checking out some of the hidden beaches in Florida, including the gorgeous Usina Beach in St. Augustine, St. George Island in Franklin County, and Juno Beach in Palm Beach County. Another fun way to explore the beauty of the state is on a Florida hike. Ocala National Forest is home to the Florida National Scenic Trail, a must follow trail that’s drenched in natural beauty. If you love animals of all sorts, set off on one of the trails that winds through Paynes Prairie Preserve State Park.
