    Made a quick trip to see the murals. Accessible, well lit and an impressive set of paintings. The next day we came back for the walking tour of Lake Wales Ridge flora. The trail was not well marked and a little rough for those with minor walking/balance challenges.

    We were recently in Avon Park and looking for something to do. We found the museum and decided to take a look. The museum was free, conveniently located downtown beside the railroad tracks, had plenty of local history, history of the region, its growth, and had very knowledgeable docents that could answer any questions. The museum is free and enhanced out visit to Avon Park.

    This lovely cozy museum displays the art and unique story of Peter Powell Roberts. They also have any other artists work on display. They have artists on display with an opportunity to hear live music, drink some wine and socialize with the artist. They also offer many classes and venues to grow your own creativity, so check out their website.

    What a neat hidden gem. We found the sign for this when driving down CR64 in Highlands County. It is a little bit off the beaten track but they have alot of Florida made items and looks like they do wine tastings at times. There is quite a collection of wines, jellies, jams, etc. The main attraction seems to be the ice cream and they have non dairy which is very good. Orange is a GREAT flavor. Little pricey. Plenty of parking and you can sit outside on the porch in rocking chairs and enjoy your ice cream.

    SFSC Alan Jay Auditorium is the #1 venue for any shows in Highlands County. Easy access, plenty of parking and not really a bad seat in the building. The total program over the snowbird months offers many choices afternoon, evenings etc. All top notch shows. You can go wrong. Let's Hang On is terrific & we would go to see them again!

    My neighbors and I try a new area golf course every week. This week it was River Greens and we were all favorably impressed. Greens area in excellent conditions and the fairways and tees are very good as well. Its a challenging course but fair.

    Great course to play, a lot of fun holes and unlike the typical Florida course, has hills and berms. It does have some boundary holes with houses, but for the most part, you're in nature. Wide fairways. Very Scottish feel to it, which is refreshing. Course was in great shape despite the lack of rain. Greens ran true. get the local players card and the green fees were $25. $25! Such value! Off the beaten path, which may be why it wasn't crowded, which is fine by me. Staff was pleasant and friendly and the bartender made a fine drink. :)

    I think they only race once a month, but if you are in the area and like racing you need to check this place out. They run several classes of mowers and some carts. Inexpensive and a good time.

    Make sure you bring a cooler and some chairs. They have a small grandstand and offer freaks he off the grill burgers, dogs, fries and few other items.

    Highly recommend if you are there when they are racing!

    An Amazing chance to see/camp old Florida. Lots of wild animals, great fishing and lovely surrounding. Drive back to see the Kissimmee River...the view is really worth it.
