Vinoy Park in St Petersburg

On a recent trip to St Petersburg to catch a baseball game, we came across this cute little park along the bay and had to stop by to check it out.

Vinoy Park is a pretty open, grassy park along the bay that serves as an event and concert venue occasionally. We caught sight of some manatees playing in the bay and heard other guests say that they say dolphins swimming along the shore. It was nice to walk along Tampa Bay and enjoy the Florida wildlife and boaters go by.

There is a playground on the far north side of the park and a beach/volleyball area just on the other side of the bay. I'm not sure if this is still part of Vinoy park but there was a sidewalk leading towards it.

It was such a nice place to stop and stretch our legs, and take in the beautiful bay before heading out of town.

Festival of Fantasy parade at Disney's Magic Kingdom

If you're planning a trip to Magic Kingdom anytime soon, make sure to include the Festival of Fantasy parade in your schedule!

The parade happens daily at 3pm and can be seen on the parade route starting in Frontierland then moving through Liberty Square, in front of Cinderella's castle and down Main Street, USA ending near the front of the park. The parade features some of our favorite characters from Disney classics and newer Disney stories. Maleficent makes an appearance in dragon form and apparently breathes fire although I don't think it was working when we were there. The steampunk inspired float is incredible regardless!

St Augustine Distillery

On a recent trip to St Augustine, my friends and I were really excited to learn about the St Augustine Distillery and had to check it out! We started our day off at San Sebastian Winery and then made our way over to the distillery which was only two blocks away.

We ended up walking in through the Ice Plant door which is the bar/restaurant attached to the distillery and made our way into the distillery gift shop. We will have to go back sometime and check out the Ice Plant but we were more interested in the distillery on this trip! There are free tours and tastings offered every 30 minutes until 5pm so we wandered around the gift shop until it was time to line up for the tour.

Marlow's Tavern Waterford Lakes Orlando

Marlow's Tavern recently opened their newest restaurant in Waterford Lakes Town Center which is now the third location in Central Florida. I  had the pleasure of attending a media preview with the Central Florida Lady Bloggers group and was impressed with the laid-back atmosphere, fresh food, refreshing cocktails, and warm, genuine hospitality.

The restaurant features plenty of seating for groups of all sizes if you're looking for a relaxing date spot or looking for a place to catch up with friends inside or outside. There are cool, misting fans on the outside patio to keep you cool on those hot summer Florida days/evenings. The tavern opens at 11:30am daily however there are no set closing hours as the owners want you to be able to relax without feeling like you have to rush to finish up.
