I have lived in South West Florida for about 15 years now. In that time I have also done a fair bit of travel and met some great people. It never ceases to amaze me the questions I get asked and the misconceptions people have about Florida. People either assume certain things based on what they have heard or they have fallen into the rumor mill about Florida and believed everything they have heard. Much like a number of the 50 states here in the U.S.A. Florida is a huge state (don’t believe me, drive from Miami to the Georgia border sometime) with very different types of areas in each part of the state. So it is important for us to distinguish what is fact and what is fiction when it comes to Florida and it’s various areas. Once you book you vacation here it will be important to have the facts about the area you are heading to before getting there.

There is a legend in Paradise that most claim is true, but only the participants know for sure. It is the kind of legend past down through generations and that songs are written about. It involves a small Island, a couple of lost sailors and a restaurant on that small island.But like any legend it depends on where you read it or who you hear it from as to what the true story is.
Summer and the long weekend life have begun. This means it’s time for a summer playlist.

The tropical lifestyle means many things to many people.Tell someone you love to live the tropical lifestyle and how they think you live may be nothing like the actual experience you have created for yourself. Each niche has its own vibe, feeling and “flavor” as well as some regional differences. Like differences in dialect of a language each one has it’s own uniqueness. We will outline just some of what we mean here. If you are looking to live the tropical lifestyle use this however you like to guide your adventure.
So you love the tropical lifestyle, the vibe, the clothing, the food, the drinks, the music, the people, the feeling of just knowing where ever you go there are those who share similar interests and that laid back attitude. But does this make you a Parrot Head? Those not familiar with the tropical lifestyle and attitude would automatically say “yes”, but that is not always the case. Believe it or not, there are those that love the islands and the lifestyle it brings but have no interest in Jimmy Buffett or his music. Some are content with just the lifestyle without the traditional music associated with it or the “attitude” associated with the Parrot Head side of it.
February in most parts of the US is cold snowy and very un-tropical like. Yet we have Valentine’s Day right in the middle of the month. A day of Love and warmth towards each other. A day to get close and share time with that special someone….just likeyou do on vacation. Maybe you’re even planning a romantic getaway for Valentines weekend to some white sand beach on a tropical island. If not, go to the local landscaping store and get a couple of bags of sand to put on the garage floor, a space heater, a sun lamp and some lawn chairs. Bring out the palm trees from the living room (if you don’t have them now is a good excuse to get them) and put the Jimmy Buffett on in the background.
You work hard five days a week and when the time comes you want to play hard at the end of the day and during the actual weekend When you vacation you love tropical destinations to luxury hotels and resorts. Your clothes reflect a taste that says “hey relax, don’t take life so seriously” and is comfort, style, and fashion together.
