Hyde Park Village in Tampa Bay: Revisiting a Forgotten Fun Spot


I recently got the opportunity to rediscover one of Tampa’s little jewels. I had a chance to go to an outting with my Tampa Bay Bloggers family to the Hyde Park Village blogger stroll.  Hyde Park Village is in South Tampa.  It’s cutesy, with restaurants, shops, and condos and an eat in movie theater.   For me it’s one of those forgotten gems of Tampa.   If you live near the area or are big on the South Tampa social scene then I’m sure it’s a place you frequent.  Living in suburbia for so long I honestly just forgot about it.  I didn’t even know what storefronts were still there. My circle of friends never mention visiting there.  Clearly we have been missing out on a great bougie destination.   Read More »

Top 10 Reasons Non-Golfers Should Attend the Valspar Golf Championship Too!

Valspar Championship, part of the PGA Tour, has arrived in the Tampa Bay area!   The Copperhead course at Innisbrook Resort and Golf Club in Palm, Harbor, FL will take center stage this week as the golf tournament gets underway. Last week  as part of a sponsored blogger event, I got the pleasure of a sneak peak of the behind the scenes happenings and what it takes to make an event like this happen.  It is a most impressive undertaking, with 125 tents, 1988 bleacher seats at the various holes, 11 scoreboards, and the use of 60,000 feet of rope! The organizers of the tournament have done such a fantastic job of putting together an array of activities that are great for those who are golf fans as well as those of us who aren’t die-hard fans or don’t even play golf at all!

Foodie Adventures: 3D Disney’s Dessert Discovery

3D Disney Dessert Discovery – Epcot Food and Wine Festival is a foodie adventure of sweets and spirits and the perfect event to show your adult Disney side.

It’s one of my favorite times of year!  It’s Epcot International Food and Wine time.  This is like Foodie Christmas.  Most people know all about sampling the various foods from around the world.  However many overlook the other events that make this festival even more of an adventure.  One of those awesome events is the 3D Disney Dessert Discovery event.

(This was not a sponsored post.  No compensation of any kind was given by Disney to promote this event.  All views and opinions are my own.  I’m just an annual passholder who likes to eat!)
