Maxwell Groves

View this post on Instagram I started my morning at Maxwell Groves, a citrus company with a lovely country store. I'd tried the ice cream back at Highlands Hanmock State Park, and wanted more, this time, direct from the source. As it was early, I took a large Orange and a large Key Lime to go. The free sample of …

Avon Park Walmart

View this post on Instagram I was planning on heading home after Sebring, but there was too much to see in Avon Park. I needed one more night in the area, so I Wally-hopped to the Walmart just a few miles up from last night's spot. It looks new, was ridiculously clean and tidy, and is situated right next to …

Sebring Soda & Ice Cream Works

View this post on Instagram Right on the circle in Sebring, you can find Sebring Soda & Ice Cream Works. They have a wide variety of fizzy sweetness, and a hot dog menu that compliments them well. I kept it simple, really simple, with a Plain Jane – but what an artistic ketchup presentation they have! I was also won …

Sebring

View this post on Instagram We rolled into Sebring a little late, knowing most places would be closed, but also knowing where I wanted to grab a bite to eat.

Lake Placid Mural Society

View this post on Instagram If you don't fancy walking, or would rather see all the artwork in air conditioned comfort, the Lake Placid Mural Society, inside the Chamber of Commerce, has a mural gallery with miniature versions of every piece. There's also a short film giving you a bit of the history. Don't forget to pick up your guide, …

Lake Placid

View this post on Instagram For anyone wanting a little less "wilds of Florida" and a little more "downtown small town fun", you're about to be spoiled rotten! Remember the sign I drove by not long after I started the trip? The one declaring Lake Placid the "Town of Murals"? Well, by golly, they weren't kidding! The must-buy $4 Mural …
