Florida Beaches to Visit this Labor Day

Florida Beaches to Visit this Labor Day

Labor Day in Florida is a holiday commemorated by barbecues, fireworks, parades, and picnics as a sign of the end of summer. This is the perfect time to arrange a last-minute summer Florida beach trip to soak sunshine before fall arrives! You may call Florida home, but do you know where to head to? Consider the following fun-filled Florida beach destinations:

 

St. Augustine

The beaches in St. Augustine, Florida provide a diverse range of experiences, from beautiful State Parks to public beaches just a block or two from local eateries. You may enjoy spending the day at the exquisite Anastasia State Park, where vehicles are not permitted on the beach. However, if you find yourself yearning to cruise through the sand in your car, you may travel a little farther south to St. Augustine Beach, where automobiles are permitted in specified locations. Make sure to work up an apatite and take advantage of one of the many terrific local pubs and restaurants along A1A, or “Beachfront Avenue.”

 

St. Petersburg

St. Petersburg Beach, a barrier island in Florida, provides a variety of things to do for adventurers, including kayaking, windsurfing and tour groups.   The sparkling crystal blue waters are fantastic for swimming, fishing, kayaking, stand up paddle boarding and many other water sports, making it an excellent option for people seeking a more active getaway.

 

While there are major recognized restaurants in the area, diners will be pleased to find that the local independently owned restaurants offer an abundance of flavorful options during to your stay at the beach. The city streets are lined with unrivaled breakfast places, excellent steakhouses, and, of course, award-winning seafood options.

 

Destin

Between Fort Walton Beach and Santa Rosa Beach sits Destin, a Florida beach resort. Destin, which is continuously named among the greatest beaches in the country, is a popular vacation destination among Florida locals and more. Destin is notable for its beautiful sand beaches and warm Gulf seas. If you decide on making Destin your Labor Day holiday spot, some popular must-sees are Gulf Island National Seashore, Big Kahuna’s Water Park, and Henderson Beach State Park.

 

Panama City Beach

Panama City Beach, known as “Florida’s Forgotten Coast,” is a popular destination located in the Panhandle which is less crowded than other Florida beaches further south. There you can take in 27 miles of gorgeous white quartz sand Gulf beaches, which are fantastic for your Labor Day weekend escape. Kick off the festivities by putting on some cowboy boots and belt out Dixie songs at the Pepsi Gulf Coast Jam. Seeking something more tranquil?  Catch a sunset boat tour of the region, board a water shuttle to nearby Shell Island, or visit St. Andrews State Park to admire wildlife in their natural environment.

 

Amelia Island

When it comes to planning your day at the beach, Amelia Island has a great deal to offer including over 13 miles of beaches! Although many visitors opt to remain at the beach nearest to where they are lodging, it is encouraged to explore the many beach options Amelia Island has to experience.

 

Beaches are accessible from over 40 public access sites as well as a number of seaside parks. Many of the island’s most notable beaches are all accessible from established parks with facilities including restrooms and showers.

 

Florida Keys

The Florida Keys are known for their plethora of outdoor activities, and enthusiasts will enjoy the world-class fishing, diving, and snorkeling. The whole family may enjoy John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park, the first underwater park in the United States and home to the country’s only living coral reef, where you will be able to witness a diversity of undersea marine life in crystal clear waters.

 

Pensacola

Pensacola, the Gulf Coast’s hub, is known for its emerald-green waters and sugar-white sands. After taking in the views from one of the greatest beaches in the country, you must consume some of the tastiest seafood the state has to offer or simply just relax at an oceanfront hotel. Spend this Labor Day weekend listening to smooth sounds at the Community Maritime Park’s Gulf Coast Summer Fest: Jazz Edition or gaze into the night sky on the beach with telescopes provided by the Escambia Amateur Astronomers Association for a great night out under the stars.

Sarasota is known for its sun, sand, and pristine ocean views, but not all Sarasota beaches are created equal. Sarasota’s wide coastline is dotted with six islands, each with its own unique charm, recreational opportunities and scenic beauty. This vacation spot is perfect for nature-loving families! Children may participate in sand dollar hunting on Siesta Beach, take a kayak tour of South Lido Nature Park, or marvel at the distinctive Florida wildlife at Myakka River State Park.

Nile Ethiopian Restaurant: Savory Cuisine in Orlando

Nile Ethiopian Restaurant: Savory Cuisine in Orlando

Nile Ethiopian Restaurant: Savory Cuisine in Orlando

Ethiopian food

Orlando Florida’s International Drive may be a hot spot for tourist attractions, but it is also home to Nile, a restaurant where you can indulge in mouth-watering authentic Ethiopian cuisine. The beautifully decorated award-winning establishment opened its doors in 2006 and has been serving a wide range of genuine and delectable meals prepared with house spices ever since.

Eating Ethiopian food is quite a unique experience. The cuisine, while typically enjoyed with friends and family, is presented on a communal plate, which encourages people to share their meal. The food on this plate, which ranges from lamb, fish, poultry, beef, vegetarian and vegan options, is placed on top of a soft and spongy pancake-like food called injera.

Injera’s taste is slightly sour and is created with teff, a grain that is crushed into flour, mixed into a batter, slightly fermented, and then cooked into a huge circular form on a heavy skillet. You are then given extra rolls of injera, used to scoop up the food on the plate. A good piece of advice: don’t forget to also eat the injera at the bottom of the dish, as it soaks up delicious flavors from the food on top.

Nile Ethiopian Restaurant truly creates the ultimate memorable experience by combining authentic cultural ambience with excellent customer service. Whether you are simply visiting on vacation or are simply just looking for things to do in Central Florida, we highly recommend you make your way to Nile!

Orlando Cat Cafe: The Purrfect Coffee Spot

Orlando Cat Cafe: The Purrfect Coffee Spot

Orlando Cat Cafe: The Purrfect Coffee Spot

There nothing like being able drive from your Central Florida home to a destination where you can snuggle with precious kittens while devouring mouth-watering coffee. Lucky for you, there is an establishment in Clermont, Florida called the Orlando Cat Cafe where you can do just that. Given that today is National Kitten Day, the timing has never been better to scope this Central Florida location out!

What is the Orlando Cat Cafe?

Florida’s first cat cafe to open was an idea sparked by cat enthusiast, Sandra Cagan, when she grew inspiration while viewing a 2014 NBC news story about this very concept. By the beginning of the following year, she gathered a copious amount of research to formulate the purrfect business for making the Orlando Cat Cafe a reality. 
 
Situated in Clermont’s Cagan Crossings shopping center, the business opened to the public in September 2016. By forming a business partnership with Winter Garden-based Axum Coffee, an established coffee company, the two businesses have been working together in bringing people’s adoration for delicious coffee and snuggly cats together. 
 

What to Expect at Orlando Cat Cafe

As you enter the establishment, you will find yourself in Axium Coffee, first which will serve as your check-in point. While you may opt to just enjoy a freshly brewed cup of hot coffee while there, paw-lease scope out the delegated cat section to play with some furry friends. Perhaps, you may lock eyes with the cat of your dreams and decide to adopt your next best friend.

How Much Does it Cost to Play with the Cats?

Keep in mind Orlando Cat Cafe charges a small fee for an hour of playtime with these snuggly pets. Adults are charged $8 to access the play/adoption area, however, if you have a little one under the age of 12, their entrance fee will be $4. If you do happen to bring a child under the age of 12, make certain they are accompanied by a trusted adult chaperone.

 

Do I have to Make a Reservation for the Orlando Cat Cafe?

Although Orlando Cat Cafe accepts walk-ins when when visitors arrive without an appointment slot, it is highly advisable to make a reservation beforehand to avoid any possibility of being denied access due to crowds reaching over-capacity.

Are Kittens and Adult Cats Kept in the Same Space?

Orlando Cat Cafe ensures that kittens and adult cats are kept apart. The younger ones are placed inside a kitten tent away from any roaming adult cats until they reach an age where they may be safely placed in close proximity to the rest of the adult cats. Not to mention, younger cats exacerbate significantly more energy in addition to requiring more attention by their caregivers.

 

Coffee with a Feline-thropic Cause

A serving of Axum Coffee goes beyond satisfying your taste buds while granting you a boost of energy. Their mission thrives in assisting those living in Axum, Ethiopia to have a higher quality of life. The profits received by each coffee purchase are donated to Ethiopian inhabitants in need while focusing on the aim to provide accessible fresh water and more.

Whether you are visiting Central Florida as a tourist, scoping out the area’s phenomenal retirement communities or are simply just looking for things to do in Clermont, make sure to add Orlando Cat Cafe to your itinerary!
