What is your favorite non-Disney destination in Florida, and why?


I've lived in Florida for the past 14 years. Recently, I'm finding more and more "off-the-beaten-path" non-touristy little gems. Where (or what) have you visited in Florida that was surprisingly refreshing and worth recommending?

    Ah yes, my beloved Cypress Gardens - which has since been reincarnated into LegoLand. I, too, loved the laid-back "old Florida" feel of that former legend. Touristy? Yes, but it never seemed hectic like its Central Florida counterparts. May it RIP
