Don’t Interfere With The Wildlife

This is a big one, folks! Florida’s many alligators ARE unbelievably cool, but only when left undisturbed in their natural habitats. You shuldn’t ever meddle with Florida’s wildlife in any way. Even if you think it’s an innocent activity, like feeding seagulls at the beach.

It can have a drastic negative impact on the sunshine state’s fragile ecosystem. Instead, you should choose some educational activities that allow you to experience Florida’s wildlife in a conservational context.

For example, at Juno Beach’s Loggerhead Marinelife Center, you can book a nighttime beach walk to view the sea turtles when they come ashore to lay eggs, all while learning about why the animals are so essential to the planet as a whole and what you can do to preserve them.

  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!
