Florida Dreaming for a Foodie Vacation!

When is the best time to go to Florida for a vacation?
Seriously? When isn’t?

kissimmeelogoAnytime’s a good time for vacationing in Kissimmee – not only is it beautiful in December or July, for a foodie, it’s fabulous all the time!

My mom’s a serious foodie too and would love checking out Emeril’s Orlando restaurant and Emeril’s Tchoup Chop…Emeril Lagasse, that is…

If you’re on my cooking site right now, you’ll probably know him – the guy who says “BAM” & “kick it up a notch”…

We love his twist on Cajun, Creole and French cuisines!

However, I would love to take my mom to Medieval Times in Kissimmee – we went when I was about 5 yrs old when my parents took me to Disney World.

We went a few years back and it was as woderful as I had remembered it! A fabulous show with marvelous horses and peregrine falcons, knights and maidens.

You are served a your section’s wench and you get to wear crowns and the whole thing. Not only that, you don’t get utensils to eat, it’s all hands baby – and lots of beer to boot.

It’s really tasty food too! Just a really fun experience!

We stayed at this great resort on the water for part of our vacation, and the first part of it, we stayed at the Record Motel…

…I know, I know…it sounds like a cheesy, cheap place – but it wasn’t! It was really inexpensive, but quaint, right in the middle of everything in Kissimmee, and extremely clean with a pool!

I highly recommend it, if you’re seriously budgeting.

* Be sure to enter the sweepstakes from Kissimmee! They’re actually giving away 3 fabulous weekend getaways for 2, and 2 week long vacations for 4 around June 1st! 🙂
