What a treat to return, after 13 long years, to the Dali Museum in St. Petersburg, FL and find it in a new, striking building designed with Dali's life in mind. This picture is looking out from the museum onto Tampa Bay.

If I were walking blindfolded, I would still know when I'd come within ten feet of the Savory Spice Shop in St. Pete. The seductive scent of the store's treasure chest of spices escapes out the door every time it is open. It lingers to entice...

Two broad snouts snuffle up from the water at the edge of the walking path along Coffee Pot Bayou. A manatee and her baby drift over to the storm drain to drink fresh water coming down from nearby Lake Crescent. The baby cuddles close. A small...

Set in a beautifully restored building on Central Avenue and named for the street in the 14th arrondissement on which the family grew up, Alésia serves French, Vietnamese, and Chinese cuisine with a discrete modern flair. Here the dishes are more...

If this breakfast sandwich picture doesn't make you want to visit Pinky's, I'm not sure what else I can tell you. But how about this: even if diners aren't your thing, you should visit Pinky's. They have cheap Cuban breakfast sandwiches and...
2117 E 7th Ave, Tampa, FL 33605, USA

609 S Howard Ave, Tampa, FL 33606, USA
It may seem oxymoronic, but healthy fast food is the name of the game at Evos. There’s no more guilt when stopping for fries when they are organic, air-baked, and environmentally sound. The fact that it's a chain should not dissuade you from...
4103 W Kennedy Blvd, Tampa, FL 33609, USA
A family-owned Tampa staple for some 42 years, Jimbo’s Pit Bar-B-Q is where hungry locals go to get saucy. Try the chopped pork sandwich platter, crispy hush puppies (some say they are hands down the best hush puppies), and the self-service pickle...

Simply put, Bern’s is a Tampa institution and probably the one place you should plan to eat if you only have one night in town. The stark, rather dull facade of the building in the heart of South Tampa doesn’t prepare you for the...

Lettuce Lake Park is located just 20 minutes northeast of downtown Tampa. Here, 240 acres of swamp, forest and floodplain are crisscrossed by about two miles of paths lined with pine needles and dirt. The hum of the nearby highway is almost...

More than 1200 people attended the grand tasting at the Forks & Corks Festival this year. I was really impressed with how well-organized the event was. The wine and food vendors were nicely interspersed and it wasn't too crowded at all. Smart move...

Sarasota is perhaps best known for its beaches, particularly the Siesta Keys, but the Marie Selby Botanical Garden is just as impressive. The gardens span 14 acres in which thousands of exotic plants thrive. A large majority of these plants were...
