TRAVELERS hate tourist traps and no one ever wants to spend more money than necessary when on vacation. Here are a few pieces of advice to experience Florida more like a local, and less like a tourist.
Eating only theme park food.
The quality of food in Florida theme parks has been improving, but there’s so much good food to be enjoyed outside the parks that it would be a shame not to. The Ravenous Pig is a James Beard Nominee in the city of Winter Park that uses Florida ingredients and presents them in a seasonal food and craft cocktail menu. If you are looking for something less formal, Kona Dog Food Truck offers almost endless combinations of savory meats and sweet bread. In Treehouse Truck you can find cooked-to-order burgers and deep-fried desserts. Don’t want or can’t leave the theme park area? Blaze Pizza in Disney’s Springs (no admission or parking fee required) offers artisanal pizzas at an excellent price.
