I was born and raised on Colorado’s Front Range, so Florida felt pretty foreign when I first moved here almost a dozen years ago: Heat! Humidity! Giant bugs! But, as I got acquainted with my new home I embraced all the cool things I didn’t have when living out West. Water is everywhere here, and I don’t mean just the beach. I love Central Forida's lakes and natural springs—certainly the best places to explore nature. I love to get on the road an visit all the great things to do in the Sunshine State.
