Dog Days of Summer

Thursday, August 3rd, 2017

Here we are in the Dog Days Of Summer. It’s hot outside but we need something to do before school starts again.   What to do? It’s always fun to get away to the beach or a refreshingly cool swimming pool to laze away the days and drink an ice cold beer. Many Florida Inns are on waterfront of some sort and many have pools. Innkeepers are always willing to help make your stay the most enjoyable for you to relax, refresh and have lots of fun. Check out an Inn to spend these final days of summer.

Happy Father's DayFather’s Day Ideas For Every Type Of Floridian Dad

Father’s Day is coming upon us quickly so it’s crunch time for making plans. Knowing that not all Dads are made the same…we have come up with several options that may work for your special man. Show him how much you care with a Gift Certificate to a Florida Bed and Breakfast Inn! Whether your:

Enjoys a fine meal ~ There’s nothing like al fresco dining on the water. Or is a no-frills dad who’d rather go out for burgers and beer ~ Perhaps taking him to a sports bar for casual dining and watching a game.

For the dad who loves to get out and move, enjoy a little adventure and spend time with the family: Why not try a picnic? Florida has beautiful Local and State Parks with plenty of activities such as nature trails, kayaking, paddle board, bike trail, nature cruises, canoeing, hiking or perhaps an airboat ride through the Everglades…something for everyone in the family.  Learn more about how to do Florida.

Does Dad like fishing? There are several fishing piers throughout the state, state parks or chartering a boat for deep sea fishing which may be more his style.

 Does Dad think he’s a golf pro? There may be more than 1,000 golf courses in Florida offering a short course for beginners, greens with varying elevations, wetland areas that attract wildlife or semi-private courses offering various tee times.

 For the dad who just wants to unwind: Give him a spa day… Yes, men enjoy spas too. Florida has some of the Best Spas in the country. Or “Dad can always bro it up at ManKind—a spa for men—where all services come with a complimentary beverage (beer or wine). The establishment recommends its One of a Kind shave, which is great for men with sensitive skin. Alternatively, you can make dad a massage appointment (as long as mom is OK with the all-female spa staff) or let a real shoe-shine specialist spiff up his kicks.”

Is Dad a Fan of History? There are countless museums, notable estates, other historical buildings, or cultural art museums across Florida where Dad can enjoy the days of yesteryear.Father's Day

Gulfport Florida First Friday Events

Thursday, February 23rd, 2017

On the first Friday of each month, you can visit Beach Boulevard in Gulfport for the fun and fantastic Gulfport Art & Gallery Walk! The event features art from several different perspectives. There are paintings, sculptures, photographs and even fanciful art created from upcycled items. That’s only part of what they exhibit. You can also find hand-crafted jewelry, self-designed and handmade clothing, accessories and bath & body products. There’s something for everyone!

This week’s Adopt-An-Artist is Seventeen-year-old Lucas Pitzen. Lucas’s love of traditional tools and techniques make him a unique young man. Instead of sitting at his custom-built computer playing games he is researching the elements for his next project. Whether he is restoring an old block plane or creating a new piece of furniture his attention to detail is beyond his years. Lucas prefers using reclaimed and renewable wood products for his creations that range from simple cutting boards to finely crafted tables. Along with selling his woodworking he believes in giving back and has already made his mark in Gulfport having completed the Little Food Pantry for the Gulfport Neighbors. Lucas currently attends the Lakewood High School CAT program and works with Pitzen Studios where his hand building skills and work ethic are truly an asset.

When it comes to music, we’ve got you covered. There are several venues throughout the Waterfront District that host live bands, so you have your choice of who to listen to, or you can jump around and hear it all.

On top of all of that, downtown Gulfport features many unique shops, boutiques and galleries with charm you will only find here.  With over a dozen great restaurants, you are certain to find something that fits your taste, and it’s all within walking distance of all the evening’s festivities. Don’t miss out on your chance to eat at one of the foremost dining destinations in the Tampa Bay Area.

Admission and parking are complimentary, with courtesy trolley rides available from off-site parking areas. Gulfport events are pet and family friendly. We can’t wait to see you there!

The event is located near the surrounding area of 3101 Beach Blvd. S., Gulfport, FL 33707.   While there perhaps you’d like staying in the area at the Sea Breeze Manor , a Florida Bed and Breakfast Inn right in the Heart of Gulfport.

So men, you’ve been roped into a romantic weekend. Doesn’t matter what you did, it doesn’t matter why. What matters is you need a romantic weekend now!

Could be you’re at that beginning stage of a relationship where you actually want to go on a romantic weekend to woo your lady. Have I got the place for you. The backdrop is perfect, beautiful St. Augustine. A plethora of romantic places steps from your doorstep.

My recent stay was at the Victorian House and innkeepers Anthony and Marilyn were a delight. Not a very manly adjective, but hey, we’re talking about a Bed & Breakfast experience here, so delightful is apropos.

Moving on, the accommodations were perfect, but I knew it would be because it’s a Florida Bed and Breakfast Inn, so, of course, the place rocks. Welcome to the land of choices, nothing but options. It’s the little things at Victorian House that makes staying a pleasure.

It might, could be, you want to venture out on your own. St. Augustine will not disappoint. Frankly gentlemen, and I’m using the term loosely, don’t you really want every possible direction you take on this special weekend to be a no-brainer?

You spill out onto the street and in every direction an option. Art galleries, restaurants, boutiques, nightlife, everywhere you look.

Gents, you’ll be a hero again, or for the first time by Saturday night.

So stay at a Florida Bed & Breakfast Inn and we’ll make you a hero dudes.
