Great Places to Visit - guest recommendations.
Parkesdale Farm Market at 3702 W. Baker Street, Plant City. This was an unique, countrified, local farm market that is a huge tourist attraction amoung "older" folks. You might want to look it up on the internet. There were literally hundreds of cars there in the middle of a Friday afternoon with people lined out the door for their strawberry sundaes, shortcakes, milkshakes, ant other strawberry products. It also is a large fresh produce and plant center. It was very quaint; however, do not dress in anything fancy to go there.

Great Place for a Picnic apart from our glorious Florida beaches of course...

The perfect place for a picnic for those who wish for a day of more leisurely pursuits.
