Busch Gardens Christmas Town 2018

Always worthwhile getting the annual pass for Busch Gardens.  The season ticket types have changed.  Be certain to renew in person for the best deals: seniors discount and a discount for renewing.

The Christmas Town sites, shows and sounds were amazing.

Zephyr Park in November

One of my favorite places to go walking in Florida.  Free entrance and free parking.  There is a water feature for young children, a playground, picnic areas and tennis courts.  The birds aren’t afraid of people so it’s a photographers’ paradise.  Sunday afternoons the snowbirds set-up and play music.

Squirrels looking for treats greet visitors.
