Those of us who have lived in the Heartland for a number of years are very grateful for the growth, which has brought us the Lakeshore Mall and a number of wonderful chain restaurants to enjoy. However, there are several "local treasures" that are unique and should not be overlooked or missed.
Sunset Grille's fish francese, among other great offerings, is superb! Yianni's absolutely cannot be beat for grilled salmon and steaks. Island View at Sun 'N Lake is a real hidden treasure with tasty selections are very reasonable prices. Cowpoke's Watering Hole has an extensive menu of delectable choices.
This holiday season I urge you to visit the lobby and arcade of the historic Hotel Jacaranda in Avon Park. The fantastic decorations are as good as anything one could see in New York City due to the talent of a very generous donor and her elves. Families come from far and wide to take their family picture in front of the 16-foot Christmas tree. The Jac's dining room, with its wonderful Southern buffet, is another treasure to enjoy while you take in the Christmas decor. Be sure to go before the end of December or you'll miss a truly amazing display of dazzling decorations.
