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.

We landed in Florida during unusually cold January weather (courtesy of "the Bomb Cyclone"/Polar Vortex) so when we'd read about a "Friday Night Bonfire" at Wekiva Island we incorporated it into an afternoon visit to nearby Wekiwa Springs State Park. Wekiva Island is fascinating and...MoreThank you for coming and visiting us! Wekiva is known for showcasing the "real" Florida. Our locals enjoy getting an escape from the hustle of central Florida.

Red Cypress Brewery

At Red Cypress Brewery, every decision from the beginning is guided by one principle: is it going to make our beer better? Fueled by a love of craft beer and desire to bring the beer culture of the West coast to Orlando, Red Cypress opened its doors in October of 2015 and we're proud that our founding members and management comprise Central Florida natives and UCF alumni. From brewing with locally-sourced ingredients, such as Florida orange peel in our Fruit de la Terre Saison, to branding our beers as homages to the eccentricities of the Sunshine state, like Devil's Chair IPA, Red Cypress is proudly Florida born and brewed.
