Memorable Things to Include in a Florida Vacation

Florida is a vacation destination with something for everyone. the best times to visit include spring and fall when the weather is cooler and the tourist crowd has thinned down. If you think Florida is all about the beaches, well, you are not entirely wrong, but there is so much more to explore.
Off the Beaten Path
With so many fun and unique dining opportunities all around you, don’t just settle for fast food or the same few you always choose. For something a little more unexpected, change things up a bit by spending an evening of suspense and intrigue on a Pinellas County Florida theater train ride. Colorful costumes, a five-course dinner and an interactive experience may make this one of the highlights of your vacation.

Oceans Views and Beach Bumming
Of course, sapphire skies and turquoise waters are a huge draw along Florida’s coastline. The white sugar sands on the beaches are ideal for building sand castles and shells of every description are scattered along the shores. Whether you are a sunbather, a swimmer, you want to frolic with the kids or just stroll along the water’s edge, you will enjoy each beach for it’s own unique features.

 Wildlife
Florida is a prime area for bird watching. In the mornings, listen for the twitter of songbirds including blue grosbeaks or scarlet tanagers. Along the beaches, Bonaparte’s gulls, snowy plovers, spot gull-billed terns, American oystercatchers, or swallow-tailed kites and even herons are frequent visitors.
Children may especially enjoy counting how many different kinds and sizes of lizards they see climbing walls and tree trunks or scampering along walkways. It is common to see the Florida scrub lizard and a variety of skinks along the path.
The biggest lizards are not really lizards at all. Alligators are reptiles and there is no shortage of them in Florida. You may spot a few as you drive the Big Cypress National Preserve and in several areas in the Everglades. They may even turn up at a local golf course, so keep your eyes open!

National Parks and Nature Preserves
There is no shortage of scenery in Florida. It is riddled with national parks and nature preserves where you may find a wide range of primitive looking plants in the wetlands and marshes. You may also see groves of Gumbo Limbo trees, royal palm and cypress trees. Again you may glimpse heron, egret, alligators and turtles.

So next time you plan a vacation to Florida, along with your swimming suit, pack some comfy touring clothes, walking shoes and maybe even an old time costume for the theater train because you are in for the ride of your life.

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.
