A Walkthrough STA History, No Admission Required

In my final phase of quarantine, I escaped to St. Augustine. I spent 43 days cooped up in my West Palm Beach home, with cabin fever slowly taking over my persona. I transitioned from “Stay Home” to STA FLA, and my spirits are elevated now that I am back to exploring Florida. There is an […]

Out of all the Florida Travel Tips I have shared, my Everglades trip has been the most repeated by my FLomad community. Over the course of a few trips, I have tested these best spots and things to do in The Everglades. You will never forget your time in The Glades, this river of grass […]

Retro Resort Review: Postcard Inn Islamorada

I have a deep love for Old Florida motels. When I see breezeblocks or a neon sign, I squeal inside.  I moved to FL when I was 6, but before my family lived here we stayed at Midcentury “Mom ‘n’ Pop” motels.  I remember thinking how cool it was that they had HBO and I […]

Death or Glory Bar in Delray

On a side street in Delray Beach there is a hidden Tiki oasis, tucked in a carport of a historical home built. Death or Glory is a young establishment with two years of business under its belt, but its building sitting at 116 NE 16th Avenue helped write the story of Delray Beach. Death or […]

I have this thing with Old Florida. Before amusement parks and country clubs lined the spine of our state, Florida was still considered to be paradise.

Local Legend: Howley’s Restaurant WPB

There are not many places that can adapt to time while preserving its history and authenticity, however Howley’s Restaurant succeeds. An eclectic mix of Midcentury nostalgia clashes with millennial quirk, to create the perfect diner along Dixie Highway that has toted the slogan “Cooked in Sight, must be right!” since 1950. I frequent Howley’s almost […]

Chasing the Sunshine Across the State

I love the East Coast of Florida, but I miss watching sunsets over the Gulf of Mexico. I catch the sunset from time to time from the barrier islands of Palm Beach County, watching the light go to sleep over the mainland. It’s lovely, but it is not the same as the ones watched growing […]

Saving Face at Bella Reina

I turned 32 a week ago, and as I work my way well into my third decade I’m trying to fight off the aging process in the most graceful ways. I’ve been trying to save face as my mug has some battle wounds from my sun worshiping Florida lifestyle. On my birthday, I was treated […]
