Planning a Foodie Vacation

I love having my vacation come up during the winter time. It gives me the perfect excuse to head for warmer climes with beaches and cabana boys. Okay – maybe not the cabana boys, but seriously, who doesn’t like to look at least?

This year my trip is to the Florida Keys. I made my decision to go there after watching a food network show on cable TV called “Drive ins, Diners and Dives.” The host of the show goes from place to place, finding the best food to be had and showcasing the house specialties.

The places he found from Miami to Key West looked amazing, so I am basing my vacation on a tour of awesome food and beaches. There is a restaurant in Miami I HAVE to try, so that is where I will start.

I am going to rent a car and then drive from Miami to Key West. Sampling food, cocktails and beaches along the way. No I won’t drink and drive, I plan to stop a motels and just travel leisurely down there even though it is only a four hour drive. I just might go deep sea fishing while I am there, as well. We shall see!
