  • altho I think the person above is somehow part of Polk county, I can attest to the fact that there is a lot there separate from Disney in central florida. my wife and I came to discover Polk county's emphasis on the arts (is that even in the slides? if it's not, it should be) while she was an art teacher. we were really surprised by the amount and talent of local artists, in addition to some strong collections we definitely didn't expect to see there. I'd strongly recommend going there if you're into art.

    The other thing that we've most recently gotten into are nature hikes. we load up the list of parks on saturday or sunday morning and pick a place for a little hike. we haven't gone on an airboat ride yet (seems really loud and kind of scary) but we have a friend visiting from Cali later this year and will probably try that out.
