You want Florida? REAL Florida? Arcadia. It doesn't get any more real (and not a tourist in sight) than that!
It's a small town (can't really call it a village) and boy is it old school Florida. Can't imagine getting there without your own car though.
Tarpon Springs is nice, heavy Greek influence, but it's still touristy...
Mount Dora is nice. We visited last August on a Sunday. had lunch in a nice cafe and lots of Harley cycles came and parked up and had a brief meeting and then went off again.
We love Celebration. It's a bit twee but in a nice way.
I've heard St Augustine is beautiful and I believe it's the oldest town in Florida? Our villa is a St Augutine model
doesnt st augustine have a fort, where the spanish first settled in florida? it was on a house in florida series and looked really nice. when we are doing the visiting thing away from the orlando area, which we dont do much at the moment will defo go to st augustine
They also blow out paper leaves in Market Street during the Fall Mick.Originally Posted by ukwdwnut, post: 220174
Like others have said, we used to love visiting Mt. Dora, taking in dinner at a lovely lakeside restaurant called Pisces Rising.
We returned a couple of years ago and we were really saddened at how the economy has taken its toll on many of the local businesses.
If you haven't been go, it's a lovely spot, one of our favorite places to visit as a matter of fact.There's another fort on the Tampa side, Arrgh, brain freeze, can't think of the name, beautiful beach and I think it's a state park. Tink?Originally Posted by ukwdwnut, post: 220224
