Perfect Pair: Diners And Road Trips

Back in May, my family decided we were going to take a road trip to Orlando. We decided not to make it just a mad rush to arrive, but to try to hit fun places on the way down and back along with some Diners, Drive-in and Dives featured restaurants. The first thing I did was create a Pinterest board for my trip with places we may like to see along the way.

While I’ve spent many a relaxing vacations on the white sandy beaches of Key West, pina colada in hand, my in-laws aren’t what you would consider “drinkers,” so my game plan for their visit had to be a little different than it usually is when we make the trip down the 7 Mile Bridge. Read More
