Key West: A Great Weekend Getaway!

Truman Hotel

There are so many great weekend get-aways in Florida.  I took a quick trip to Key West this weekend for a historic tour.  Most bed and breakfasts require a two night stay, but the lovely and updated Truman Hotel, two blocks from Duval Street, did not. 

 
We watched the sunset, did the tourist Conch Train Tour, ate a couple of really nice meals (dinner at Pisces was particularly delicious) did some shopping (really cute towels and gifts at Towels of Key West) and enjoyed the trip both there and back.
 
Next time I go down, I am going to focus on the water activities!  We really are lucky to live in South Florida.

Things To Do In Miami: Visit A Farmers’ Market

Fresh! Keys Gate Carrots

Well, normally the weather has cooled down enough by mid-December for to thoroughly enjoy the local Farmers’ Market that pop up in the fall and last through spring.  Even though temperatures are still in the 80’s, head over to one of the markets for a fun day out and a chance to purchase produce straight from the farm.  Many also have great gift ideas and live plants for your garden.

Laurenzo's Italian Market Holiday Wine Tasting

Lots of wines, people, food and fun!

For years, my dad trekked up to North Miami Beach to shop at Laurenzo’s Italian Market and I go by every time I visit my sister in Aventura.  Last night hubby and I decided to make the drive to attend their annual Holiday wine tasting.  I had never been to one before and am so glad we ventured out of our neighborhood for an evening out.  So many wines were poured there was no way to try them all, even with a designated driver!  Picked up a bunch a great food on the way out, so we will be eating wonderful Italian food this week.  If you have never been to Laurenzo’s it is worth the trip.  They are holding wine tastings through the holidays on Saturdays, from 1-4 p.m.

Liberty Caffe In Coral Gables – Last Week's Where's J Wo Answer

The entrance to the Liberty Caffe, located in the historic Country Club of Coral Gables, is last week’s Where’s J Wo answer.

The Country Club, recently restored by the Liberty Group out of Toronto, was originally the Merrick family’s vegetable garden.   Designed by Hampton and Reimert, it  was the first public building in Coral Gables.   When it opened on January 15, 1923,  it rapidly became an important part of the social scene as well as  in promoting Coral Gables as a place to buy real estate.  It was often used by George Merrick to entertain prospective buyers for his single family homes.
