March is a very busy month.
More Fairs and festivals to visit including the annual Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival, Strawberry Festival, The Chocolate Festival - which is a must surely... and even a Festival for Motorbikes.
We have the Honda Grand Prix and The Arnold Palmer Invitational for those of a sporty disposition, a series of workshops in health and wellbeing for those of a more ethereal disposition and The Chocolate Festival for those of us who have given up hope of any disposition other than we just love chocolate. Mentioning it twice just shows the importance of this event in the March calendar.
We hope that what ever you choose to do that you have a wonderful time and please remember to let us know of any great discoveries of your own so that we can let others know.

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...
