    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...

    I can't say that I get around Florida much but I have visited St. Augustine. Absolutely beautiful. I know it can be touristy but there really aren't many places that aren't.

    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

    They also blow out paper leaves in Market Street during the Fall Mick.

    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?
