“Cauley Square Historic Railroad Village is a glimpse of Old South Florida at its best. Spend the day or a lazy afternoon shopping and casually strolling through the shaded garden paths.”

“This is one of my favorite spots to take out-of-towners. It is quite a drive, but it is worth it! Get there early, bring lunch,, water, bug spray, and your sense of wonder! This is an unbeatable experience for animal appreciators. They have multiple hands-on animal presentations throughout the day, with many opportunities to learn about, and interact with the animals that have come to call this nature preservation home. Being in the wolf enclosure will have you reaching for your camera non-stop, while the beautiful creatures playfully interact act with your group!”

“The Secret Gardens were designed and created by a landscape artist who was inspired by South Florida's natural ecology. Natural coral rocks and tropical foialage were used to recapture the essence of a forgotten Florida past where a lush green eco-system thrived and natural lagoons and waterfalls flowed in abundance. ”

“Great mexican and seafood restaurants located one of them in Homestead and the other in the south to Islamorada. Offer fresh homemade seafood and sauces, well cooked, nice presentation. and of course delicious margaritas made with authentic flavors and original recipes. The outside of the restaurant is spiritedly decorated which makes it easy to spot along the road and the painting on the inside in combination with the nice music create a special ambiance. The staff is polite and friendly. Service is fast and good. Generous portion. Great value for the price.”
