Is Celebration Florida Your Cup of Tea?

Disney Florida Life Like a Local Travel

For many first time visitors to the Town of Celebration, they aren’t quite sure what to make of it. White picket fences, perfectly manicured lawns, families on evening bike rides, it sounds ideal, doesn’t it? If you like living on a movie set, or as many refer to it, The Stepford Wives. You have to remember though, the Town of Celebration was built by the Walt Disney World Company back in the 90’s, and what is Disney if not the…

Happy First Day of Summer!

Florida Life Travel

It’s not summer without a trip to the beach. And for me, it’s not summer without a trip to my favorite beach: Captiva!

My Staycation at Westgate Lakes

If you are looking for some rest and relaxation, look no further than a stay at Westgate Resorts. ‘Staycation,’ that’s a trending word right now, but how many actually indulge in staying at a hotel or resort in their own home town?  I recently did, and it was amazing. In a way, it can actually be more relaxing than a regular vacation because for one, you don’t have to worry about the traveling by air and two, if you leave…

St. James's Park, London, England

Travel

Going back to my trip to London… If you read some of my previous posts then you know I am a fan of parks, gardens and nature.  Florida provides the perfect setting for all those things, but I seem to find some of the most beautiful parks and gardens when I travel out of the state of Florida. All week as I was going back and forth through London in a taxi, we kept passing by St. James’s Park. I…
