My husband and I are always excited to see each monthly edition. We’re taking a road-trip from around Cocoa Beach to St. Augustine on A 1A for our 33rd wedding anniversary. Always open to suggestions.

Thanks a lot. Judy and John

As a Florida resident my entire life, I truly enjoying receiving these in my inbox for news ways to see my home state. If you ever start donations to support your work, I would be glad to help. Thanks again.

Just to let you know how much I enjoy these posts. I cannot make every park or suggestion ( from title walks to canoe trips) but I try to write down on an index card for my next adventure when in the area. Your comments and recommended places to go are most welcome to a traveler like myself! We frequent the panhandle every one or two years and sometimes central Florida for Florida kin visits
