Well we'll have a car this time :)
I was thinking we could get a hotel up there for a night or two and maybe hit up busch gardens the following day or something
Certainly could. Or go over and spend some time on the Gulf beaches!Originally Posted by Keith, post: 254201
Tom (... really wants to go back to the Don CeSar!)
great idea, I know someone who'd love that! (and I guess the car has air con for me so I can stay there and internet )Originally Posted by catrancher, post: 254202
Yep! The Don Cesar. Built back in the 1924. The "Pink Lady" played host to all kinds of famous personalities; F. Scott Fitzgerald, Clarence Darrow, Franklin Roosevelt and even Al Capone.Originally Posted by Keith, post: 254207
It's really a delightful place to spend some time. My DW and I went down there several years ago and spent a week. Did nothing but lay around, eat, drink, swim and read. Probably one of the most relaxing vacations I've ever had!
Tom (.... wonder if Uncle Andy's Ice Cream shop is still there?)
Go check the link to the resort back in my post here (click me), Robert.Originally Posted by robertcraig, post: 254208
It's a beautiful, old resort hotel on St. Petersburg beach that has nothing to do in it except rest, eat, drink, sleep, swim and relax. Right on the beaches of the Gulf of Mexico.
Tom (... fan of "The Don"!)
