This museum was for many year one of the best in the United States. Possibly because of a remodelling program, many of the aircraft exhibits, some of which are unique, are not now accessible to visitors. This reduces the quality of the museum's appeal and interest.

Reviewed By Ar0und_the_planet - London, United Kingdom

Stayed at the Southern Dunes Golf resort over the Christmas & New Year. Very quiet resort which is well looked after. The resort is gated with 24hr security. We stayed in a 3-bed house with a pool. The house was clean and tidy with all the usual amenities. There is a small communal fitness room and swimming pool available for use; the security code for the door is available from security at the entrance gate. There is a bar in the clubhouse. The resort is approximately 30 minutes from Disneyland, 40 minutes from Universal and 60 minutes from Downtown Orlando (all times dependant on traffic).

Close by are a few fast food outlets, restaurants and grocery stores.

Captain Fred's is such a lovely day trip.The whole staff was warm and welcoming. Our captain Wayne was frendly and reassuring us ladies that the airboat ride we were about to take was not like the screaming coming in sideways kind of ride you see on TV. Being leary of this put my mind at ease. Our party of four really enjoyed ourselves seeing lots of wifdlife which didnt seem to mind us being there at all. Lots of fun!

Circle B Bar Reserve

Reviewed By J_travelB - Guelph, Canada

Nice visit. The folks at the volunteer centre are friendly and helpful with identifying birds and turtles in the reserve. The walks are not long. One can do a loop in about 2 hours and there are more trails so you could walk probably 5 hours to see every possible trail. Lots of signage on the trails and people photographing wildlife with huge camera lenses. There are many stores and herons and cranes and ducks. Also aligators are easy to see (of all ages and sizes). There are a number of turtles as well. Nice easy walk and lots to see.

This was my first time at Theatre Winter Haven. I saw The Hunchback of Norte Dame. The building is not fancy, but the production was superb. Excellent acting, singing, dancing, choreography, set design and orchestra. Truly exceptional community theater. I have seen many Broadway productions, and this was as good, plus much more up close and personal, and at a fraction of the price.

Lake Myrtle Sports Park

Reviewed By Hoochiesmama - Fort Myers, Florida

The sports complex is huge with beautifully kempt fields.
We were there for soccer---this is where the offices/head of FYSA are. The groundskeepers do a wonderful job at keeping the grass short, without potholes and divots, and nice and green. Especially since we are in dry season in Florida.
The fields are relatively well marked.....as you drive through the expansive parking lots.
Washrooms were clean(considering hundreds of soccer players with cleats...and their family's visit them daily. There was toilet paper available!!(always a bone of contention going to sports complexes)
The parking is very accessible. Minimal shade for the parents--but we are well attuned to bringing chairs and umbrellas.
The concession stand was not open for the early morning games....coffee would have been nice.
All in all---a very nice facility. Well done FYSA. Nice to not have to travel to multiple parks/locations for events.

On this latest trip to the area, we had to visit again, for the orange soft-serve ice cream. The ice cream is delicious, but the cones are a little stale. We came back again before we went home, and got our ice cream in a cup instead of a cone. I think you get more ice cream this way ;-) I got half orange\half blueberry this time. The blueberry soft-serve was also very good, and I am glad I tried it, but the orange is so much better. After all, this is Florida. The older couple that runs this place are very friendly and chatty. We will see you again in the spring! We purchased some great jams here as well, but later learned that the place that makes the jam is in Dundee, about 30 minutes south on I27. You can get every kind of jam, jelly, and candy they make, and even watch it being made if they are working that day. No ice cream though.

The Stable Home Decor

Reviewed By BentleyBoy - Central Florida, Florida

This one facility is the main (and close to the only) reason to visit this Fair city of Lake Alfred (emphasis on "fair"). It encompasses a Home Decor Shop/ Outdoor Decor Shop. cute Restaurant, Stained Glass Shop and Antique Store called 'The Barn'~ all in One. Every thing here is First Cabin and if you're into fashionable decorating for our home or apartment -it's The Bomb (an explosion of gift ideas). Thousand's of choices. The real Trump(sorry) is the Antique Store which I tried to create a listing here on TA. Great value on English Antiques and more. Good news too.... is if you time it right, you can also have lunch in the "Back Porch" Restaurant. Beautifully decorated with super reasonably priced lunches.
We only found ONE other antique store in this Burg and if it wasn't for this set of stores, we think we would have wasted a 3 hr round-trip drive. 'The Stable' with it's Outdoor Shops, 'The Barn', 'The Stained Glass Studio Room' and 'The Back Porch' made it worthwhile. Enjoy....
