The Florida Summers can be quite brutal. Make sure you wear sun screen when out on the beach.

Florida Food Eat local for the best of the tropics!

There is more to Florida than surf and oranges. The Sunshine State is a seafood lovers paradise. Enjoy southern cooking, fusion and island specialties. And yes, key lime pie and stone crabs when they are in season. Enjoy the fantastic Cuban cuisine!

Ceviche
Ceviche is a cold salad of sea food where the fish or shrimp has cured in citrus lime rather than being cooked. The flavors are amazing and mixed with a variety of other things such as avocado and cilantro this is much better than a simple shrimp cocktail.

Stone Crabs
These crabs provide huge chunks of delicious meat. Try it at Joe’s Stone Crab in South Beach.
