  • We Took A Southwest Florida Everglades Road Trip In A Toyota Sienna

    Minivans aren't sexy or cool... right? Well not exactly. While minivans of your youth were more focused on utility than comfort, technology and design, today's current generation of minivans - especially the 2022 Toyota Sienna are a different breed. While utility is still paramount, minivans are truly my top choice of vehicle for long road trips where you'll be riding only on paved roads. Just because the roads are paved though doesn't mean you can't have a great adventure though and that's what we did while exploring Southwest Florida Everglades with a Toyota Sienna.

  • Wooten's Airboat Tours Southwest Florida's First Airboat Company Is Still Going Strong

    Airboat tours are THE iconic way to explore the Florida everglades and frankly I learned a lot more about the environment than I expected from the tour during our time flying across the water and weaving between clusters of mangrove trees.

  • Sirene At JW Marriott Marco Island Is More Than Your Typical Beachfront Resort

    There are many beachfront hotels along Florida's Gulf Coast that offer amazing views and easy access to the region's famous sugar-like sand and calm crystal clear waters. Our stay at JW Marriott Marco Island though was clearly a step above if you are looking for a luxury escape at a resort featuring the latest technology to enhance the existing high quality of service.

  • Oceanfront Dining In Deerfield Beach, Florida At Oceans 234

    I'm a sucker for dining with views of the water, I'm addicted to sand, palm trees and the sound of waves crashing on the beach while I eat. Heck, even in colder areas without sand and palm trees I still love oceanfront restaurants where you can smell the sea breezes. Oceans 234 in Deerfield Beach delivers all of that in a chic but still chill, laid back and relaxed environment with some of the best food I've had in a long time.
