Some of the drinks are really good and other are just too sweet for my liking. The best one is the painkiller and the runner up is the French drink Britany had with the gin. The best thing about this place is the truffle fries. The sauce is THE best and you get A LOT!!

Parks
Small but nicely updated park. It is mostly fenced in and has a cute butterfly garden as well. Ours girls like this one because of the large climbing apparatus and the different types of swings.

This is a very small park with some foliage and benches. What makes this place so beautiful is that is site next to the waterway that goes into the river. There is a let in for kayaks and so a quite and free area to explore.

A great small theater! Tickets are always affordable and most people who in these plays are volunteers. It's a great way to support the arts but also get a great show!

This place has is all for not just children but the whole group! If your kids are interested In space, you can spend hours here and still have more to do. (We recently went and a few things weren’t working) The cost is reasonable but it can add up when you have a group. They often have a company support a free day or a discounted rate a few times a month. It changes often so you'll have to check it out.

This is one of our favorite places to just walk and see what we happen upon. The area is very artsy and eccentric. It has a mixture of vintage/historical and modern. You can browse a vintage "junk" store, end up at a local restaurant, the Cummer Museum or the river. We always enjoy our time here.
