ShoreTrips says...

Leave the ocean behind for a while. There's lots to see in Florida's interior. Really, there is!

Your trip away from the beach begins with a stop at a local farm for a delicious breakfast pastry.

Let's move on to Coral Castle, a marvel of engineering and a building mystery. There is much speculation and intrigue surrounding the construction of this impressive limestone edifice by just one man, Ed Leedskalnin. This truly unique place is a real Florida treasure! Even if you haven't figured out the mystery of how Ed built Coral Castle, it's time to head to a very interesting tropical park, showcasing hundreds of varieties of fruits, vegetables, tropical trees, spices and nuts. Sample some uncommon varieties of bananas, starfruit and sapote and learn about many of the plants that are grown here.

Moving from fruit to flowers, we visit an orchid farm, boasting several hundred of varieties of these exotic beauties. Take a break with a fresh-squeezed tropical treat.

With all the sampling, make sure you save room for lunch. We are headed to a Jamaican/Haitian restaurant specializing in homemade food. This place is getting great reviews!

Our next stop, a tropical market, will dazzle you with the sheer variety and number of tropical fruits and vegetables. Don't leave without trying one of their famous tropical fresh-fruit shakes.

Last but not least, we'll tour a family winery estate. See the process of turning grapes into their divine end product and enjoy a tasting (or, if you're not into wine, choose a craft beer instead).

As you head back to the city (and the beach) reflect on your day visiting the wonderful places in Florida you didn't know existed!
