For a Florida Beach Vacation

I certainly agree with your comment that this is one spectacular town to get away for a Florida Beach Vacation. Everything's relaxing, and you can just about always here the ocean waves, even from the main drag. It's pretty neat that the Surf Shop is open twenty-four hours a day. That has to be a one-of-a-kind type of thing. Everybody so proud of this place, and you can get surfer lessons. The food choices are so nice. I will give you a few of my picks starting with oh shucks seafood bar for the seafood - 401 meade avenue - 321-783-4050. Everyone has to have Pizza and make sure to eat a slice on the shore. Get it at ny pizza house - Italian - 3850 north atlantic avenue - 321-868-7179. International House of Pancakes - sandwiches, pancakes - 3830 north atlantic avenue - 321-783-0620. Cheaters - american - 5450 north atlantic avenue - 321-799-3211.

Really Good Pick

No need to eat in the bestwesterncocoabeach.com hotel room's kitchenette, but having the refrigerator is huge. We can certainly grill out, as I will make sure the bbq-grill is working nicely tomorrow. If it needs fuel, I will pick some up. They have some nice grills at the hotel, but it would be nicer to grill out at the nps.gov Cape Canaveral Park. I have gone martha stewart marthastewart.com cooking crockpot crazy with those wonderful light calorie crockpot recipes! Get that Lion King kitty outside for some shoreline bbq! What a great beachtown trip.

Things to Do

On our central Florida trip we got a great meal at squidlipsgrill.com cafe. All dinners include: choice of potato dujour, rice or french fries and vegetable dujour. It reminded me of Olivia's Cafe at the Old Key West Resort in Orlando.

I am looking forward to stopping at the thebigmansion.com when we drive to the coast. There’s a lot to eat, drink and explore at the Mansion. I love the Overstuffed Sicilian Sandwich Created with Genoa, Ham, Provolone, Mozzarella, Mayo and Olive Topping.
