Reviewed By Anne M - West Simsbury, Ct

We had a family outing and loved the raptor center. Lots to see , demonstrations, up close viewing of birds by handlers. Good for kids and for all walking abilities. The people working at the center are knowledgeable and friendly. Great morning adventure, easy access, easy parking and family friendly prices. Bathrooms too.

This museum was an unexpected gem! We traveled to Winter Park to see something at Rollins and then had time and looked into this museum. It is a museum of American decorative arts and so there is pottery and other paintings as well (a Singer Sargent, for example) But it is most impressive for its Tiffany collection! From the World’s Fair CHAPEL INTERIOR to the many items, including porticos and jewelry and drawings.
If you have a moment, watch the short video, at the entrance, about the Morses and how this museum came to be. It’s very informative and it makes you appreciate the museum, and its importance, even more.
Free parking and a very reasonable entry price.

Nice park with playground for the kids, perfect spot for picnic, just staring at the lake, or walking for exercise. Fun nights when the food trucks visit.

We enjoyed our visit to this lovely park and we especially enjoyed touring the historic home there. Our docent guide was very knowledgeable not only about the house but also the history of the area.

We had been for a half day shooping tour and recommend to stay longer. It was not crowded at all and the selection of shops is fantastic. I highly recommend this mall instead of going to the very crowded outlets near the Disney resorts!

The Hourglass Brewery

Hourglass Brewing is about creating world class beer and turning outlandish ideas in delicious and nuanced craft brews. As proud recipients of the 2017 Florida Brewery of the Year winner at the New York International Beer Competition, we take pride in the craftsmanship of our work. We believe in doing things the right way, no matter how difficult that may be. That means we never use just any kind of malt, hop, or flavor extracts. If there is a specific flavor or aroma we want present in one of our beers, we will search high and low to figure out how to make it work, using only natural ingredients. Each and every aspect of each and every beer is hand selected from trusted suppliers, both locally and internationally. We are obsessed with finding the perfect ingredient for our beer every time - from locally grown tropical fruits, to Indian and South American herbs, hops from Africa and Japan, or malt from Chile and Scotland - ensuring you always get the best glass of beer possible.

We are definite beer lovers who try lots of styles so we wanted to see what they have to offer. First visit was on a Sunday afternoon so not very many people there. Lots of seating options from chairs/sofa , booths, tables both high top & regular. Finally figured out you have to go to the bar to actually get any service - no wait staff. Very slow to get beer, but they had a good selection for a local brewery & it was great beer. Not many good food options nearby on a Sunday but we did go a few doors down to the wing place which was decent. All in all good experience. Relaxing place to enjoy a great beer. Will be back.

Lake Lotus Nature Park

Reviewed By Nancy U - Altamonte Springs, Florida

We stopped by for a nice afternoon walk with the family. We parked on property as it wasn't crowded at all. We spend about 90 minutes walking the boardwalk (some closed for repair) and mulch paths. It is quite with signs giving you info about nature. It has a small playground and places to picnic and grill. Just a nice place to get away from the city.
