Fall in Love with Florida's Scenic Beauty, Wildlife and Attractions

I thought that Florida must be over-hyped, but then I moved there and found out for myself how fabulous Florida really is. Browse through my list of pages and see for yourself all the fun things to do and see in Florida.

Besides the many man-made attractions, the state has its natural beauty going for it and warm winter weather as well. No wonder it tops the list of vacation destinations and draws new residents like a magnet.

I'll share some of my photos of fabulous Florida for you to enjoy.

Fun Flicks about Fabulous Florida - Short videos from YouTube

I hand-picked these for your enjoyment.

Fantasy of Flight (Central Florida/Polk County)

This is a superb museum. I particularly liked the WWII bomber. As you walk inside, you hear the engine sounds and feel the vibration to get the feeling that the crew had while out on a bombing mission.

Pilots can actually take some of the planes from Fantasy of Flight up in the air. All the time while I'm out on the patio or out golfing, I hear the sound of vintage aircraft going overhead.

Gatorland (Kissimmee)

Plan to spend half a day (minimum) here. Lots to see and learn. It's not just to entertain children. I found it quite informative and the demonstrations of alligator wrestling was fun. They feed the alligators so you can watch them leap from the water for food.

There's a zipline, a train ride through the alligator infested swamps and much more to see.

You'll find lots of opportunities for photos, so bring your camera.

Arabian Nights Dinner/Horse Show (Kissimmee)

One of the best of the themed dinner shows in Kissimmee/Orlando area. The horses perform marvelously. We too a visitor there and the meal was tasty and the entertainment top-rate.

The Show at Medieval Times Is Fabulous

Jousting and feats of derring-do on horseback with special lighting effects entertain you while you eat your medieval style meal. Wonderful!

      I'm thinking FL is in my retirement plans - somehow. I love that there's not state income tax.
