Don’t Forget To Pause For That Sunset

There’s nothing like a golden hour in Florida, but the sunset itself might just beat out everything else. Locals across the state love to quote famous Floridian Jimmy Buffett when it comes to quitting time: “It’s 5 o’clock somewhere!” So why not do as the locals do?

At the end of the day, slow down to enjoy one of life’s greatest pleasures. Five o’clock is Florida’s unofficially “official time” to kick back and relax with a cold beverage and await the splendor of the setting sun.

So be sure to leave some room in your itinerary to soak in this simple yet stunning Florida treasure.

  1. Opa resturant in Orlando near the convention center , usually requires reservations, but the food is so great, be a mistake to miss.

    We came here the first time in August 1970. WE came back in December then relocated the following year.The two best choices in my life were marrying my wife and having a family and moving to Florida! I am retired now and have been in heaven on earth most of my life!

  3. Siesta public beach on Siesta Key Sarasota is a great place to go,
    but stay away during Spring Breaks and major holidays. The traffic
    comes to a complete halt on Midnight Pass Rd and in Siesta Village.
    The Gulf water is a little too warm from June thru Sept. but very nice
    the rest of the year. The white sand on Crescent Beach is like nothing I’ve seen before. There are so many great places to see
    and restaurants to eat at in the Sarasota area you will surely enjoy
    your stay.

    My husband and I wintered in the Florida Keys for several years until we got too old to drive down and back from Minnesota. Make sure you go south and spend some time going through the Keys. What a beautiful trip that is!
