Comfort Shoes For Florida Fun

Visit Largo, Florida, and you'll need comfy shoes for exploratory trips on nature trails and long walks on nearby beaches. In the winter months of November, December, January, and February, weather can dip into the 40's at night, so boots are good choices. In June, July, and August days of summer, we have highs in the 90's, and sandals or flip flops are popular with the natives.

McGough Nature Park is located along the Intracoastal Waterway. It includes nature trails, picnic areas and shelters, a playground, restrooms,a butterfly garden, a horned owl enclosure, and a boardwalk.

It's great to discover all the wonder in this park. I also recommend toured nature walks and environmental programs, which are given year round.

Pinellas County Heritage Village

11909 125th Street N., Largo, FL. 33774

Heritage Village, first opened in 1977, is home to more than 28 structures. Heritage Village offers visitors the opportunity to tour buildings, inside structures, and grounds. This 'living musuem' hosts structures from the mid-19th century, and of great historic importance to Pinellas County.

Visitors can tour a school, a church, a railroad depot, a sponge warehouse, many homes, and a general store. Visitors will see documents, furniture, groceries, and other 'accessories' typical of the buildings' history.

Among the historic homes, two incredible structures draw visitors: the McMullen-Coachman Log Cabin, the oldest existing structure in Pinellas County, and the must-be-seen Queen Anne-style House of Seven Gables. (pictured here, from Heritage Village).

Heritage Village hosts year round activities and special events. The Village sits within 21 acres of beautiful Pines. Remember to bring your camera and wear comfortable walking shoes.

This isn't just for tourists. Residents frequently visit, as the Village adds to its collection. I've visited with my son's school, and I loved it so much, I planned his cub scout group tour.

It's magical in a way, to see historic houses and their furnishings, the one-room schoolhouse, the log cabin. Far better than only seeing pictures from a history book. I can't imagine anyone visiting and not enjoying these historic buildings.

Heritage Village reminds its visitors of the importance of preserving our history, while providing an educational and fun outing for all.

Phone: (727) 582-2123

Cost: Free Admission! Donations Welcome.

Hours: Tuesday - Saturday 10 a.m. - 4 p.m.; Sunday 1 - 4 p.m.

in Largo Central Park

Ride a mini train along 1.2 miles of track within beautiful Largo Central Park. The public is invited. The train runs on the first full weekend of every month, from 10 am to 4 pm. Donations are gratefully accepted, as monies are used to maintain the train.

Our family's gone on the train several times. The train runs within scenic Largo Central Park. We always notice something new on the train ride - new flowers, and one time, we spotted hiding bunnies in the bushes. I'd recommend this for a fun and inexpensive activity. Watch your calendars for the first full weekend of the month.

Cost: Free, Suggested Donation

The train is run and maintained by Largo Central Railroad, Inc. club members.

Highland Family Aquatic Center

400 Highland Avenue, Largo, FL. 33770

Highland Aquatic Center is like a mini water attraction. On the shallow end, kids can climb the built-in jungle gym with attached water guns to squirt swimmers. Kids can safely climb the gym, with a floor that gently slopes to the shallow area, perfect for little swimmers or for parents to sit down and watch the action.

Four twisty slides, of different shapes and lengths, splash swimmers into into the deep end of the pool. The pool is large enough to enjoy swimming, floating, or making laps.

You'll soon learn why this center is highly recommended by Largo residents. With fun, interactive activities around the pool, kids of all ages will find something to love.

Protect Yourself in the Sun - Apply & Reapply

You might want a Florida tan to brag to your friends back home. But do it the smart way - use sunscreen for your outside activities.

Oh, and the reapplying part? Yeah, you gotta reapply sunscreen because lobster-red skin doesn't scream 'cool'.

No matter the season, sunscreen is the smartest thing you can wear.

Largo's 4th of July Celebration and World Record Attempt

Let's Do The Twist

The City of Largo celebrated the 4th of July with a world record attempt of dancing to The Twist!

The current record of having the largest number of people twisting in one place was set on April 30, 2004, in England. Largo tried to beat that record number 1,691 participants. Since Largo's 4th of July celebration usually attracts 20,000 people, city leaders were sure that they'll be able to beat the world record.

The city of Largo celebrated its 50th anniversary, just like the 50th anniversary of The Twist. What better way to tie the anniversaries together and make it into The Guinness Book of World Records!

For a little history:Chubby Checker sang his version of The Twist, in 1960. Several hits about The Twist followed. In1962, Joey Dee sang his hit called The Peppermint Twist.

Fantastic news for Largo: Joey Dee lives in Clearwater Florida and headed the 4th of July program.

Registration started at 6 PM on Sunday, July 4.

Participants received a commemorative hat to remember the night. For those with a rusty twist (or those not sure how to twist), instructors were on hand to teach The Twist moves. The participants had to dance five minutes without a break, according to the rules of the Guinness Book of World Records.

Unfortunately, strong lightening storms kept most 4th of July participants at home. For those who braved the wet and stormy conditions, the Twist World Record Attempt continued in the soggy, muddy grass. They didn't have enough people to beat the record, but it was still a fun night for everyone who danced and watched. "C'mon, baby, let's do the twist" was on everyone's mind and feet as they twisted in the drizzle and mud.

      Largo sounds great. I only spent a couple of days in the Tampa area a few years ago, and have been to Naples and Sanibel once, but other than that I am not very familiar with the West Coast of Florida. Would love to go back one day.

      Wednesday-Elf 7 years ago from Savannah, Georgia

      I lived in Florida more than 45 years ago -- and STILL miss it. Just left South Carolina and moved to St. Louis to be near family. As I'm about to re-experience a Midwest winter for the first time in 17 years, I envy you the Florida weather!

      This was a delightful tour of Largo, Florida. My 8-year-old grandson would especially love riding on the Largo Central Railroad, as he is extremely 'train crazy'. If I ever do get back to Florida, I will definitely have to visit Largo. ~~Blessed by a SquidAngel~~

      Thank you so much, Mulberry. I appreciate your comments, especially in hearing you're a long ago, area resident. [in reply to mulberry]

      Come visit, Largo, Ryan. You'll love it!

      Enjoyed your lens, good info, and great pictures too. Actually, I lived in the vicinity for a year or so (a long time ago), in Bradenton.

      I'll be on the next flight! I've been in Orlando, FL and you are not kidding, we landed in between bolts of lightning. I was afraid we'd be fried in the sky. I have fond memories of Florida. 5 star lens as always. Keep up the good work.
