The 88th Annual Arcadia All-Florida Championship Rodeo! March 10-13th, 2016. Fun entertainment for all ages! Enjoy watching the Saddle Bronc Riding, Bareback Riding or Bull Riding events along with The Quadrille, a very popular event that can best be described as “square dancing on horseback.” This is oldest rodeo organization in the state of Florida that has evolved from its initial beginnings to a national sport, drawing top cowboy athletes from all over the nation. Participants compete for purses and points aiming for the “Super Bowl” of rodeo, the National Finals held annually in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Looking for quiet privacy, a romantic get-away or maybe just to recharge your psychological batteries for a few days? Step back into the previous century and recapture all the romance, charm and gracious ambiance of the bygone era and enjoy the luxurious The Oak Park Inn, Arcadia’s only “Downtown” Hotel. Whatever your reason may be, the results will be worth it. Proud to be an official “stress free” zone, The Oak Park Inn, of Arcadia is a great place to hide out in plain sight!

Oak Park Inn Bed and BreakfastThe Oak Park Inn Bed and Breakfast can be found in downtown Arcadia at 2 West Oak Street.  What a charming and beautiful BnB to visit.  Arcadia, Florida is located at the intersection of Route 17 and Route 70, mid-state between Sarasota and Fort Pierce.  Downtown Arcadia is an enchanting district of historic buildings full of antique shops.  Pleasantly lost in time, Arcadia offers a pleasing escape from the hustle and bustle of life.

While there it would be worth your while to take the time to canoe down the beautiful Peace River.   The Peace River gently meanders through Arcadia with high, forested banks, low pastures and sandy outcroppings.  It’s not unusual to spot deer, alligator and a variety of birds, maybe even some wild turkeys.  Fossil hunting is a favorite of some as well.  Becky Bragg is the owner of Canoe Outpost, one of Florida’s most established paddling outfitters. She invites you to glide through the unspoiled back country and experience its quiet.  Swim, fish or have a picnic. Canoe Outpost-Arcadia (800) 268-0083

Arcadia holds several popular annual events: The Desoto County Fair between January 17 – 27, 2013;  the Watermelon Festival in May at the height of harvesting season; special events along with car shows and parades.  The tri-annual All-Florida Championship Rodeo will be held March 8 & 9, 2013.

On the fourth Saturday of each month, vendors from surrounding areas take over the streets with even more wares and precious finds. Tucked between the shops, you’ll have the chance to enjoy cafés, home cooking, a tea room and even an old fashion ice cream parlor, complete with homemade delicious flavors, sundaes and shakes.

If you enjoy a pleasant get-a-away and like to explore the country lifestyle, you’ll really enjoy visiting Arcadia and sleep well at the Oak Park Inn Bed and Breakfast. (863) 494-9500Oak Park Inn Parlor
