Koreshan State Historic Site / Koreshan Unity Settlement
With recorded history dating back to 1513, Florida is filled with an astounding variety of historical sites from natives, settlers, conquerors and religious groups seeking to establish their own piece of heaven on earth. The Koreshan State Historic Site / Koreshan Unity Settlement between Fort Myers and Naples is a unique site that offers visitors a glimpse into a part of Florida’s history that not many know about.
It all began in 1894 when an unusual man named Cyrus Reed Teed brought his followers to Estero to build New Jerusalem for his newly invented faith, Koreshanity. He and his followers - called the Koreshan Unity - believed that the entire universe existed within a giant, hollow sphere. <read more>

Oahu Nature Tours
Throughout history, Oahu has been called “The Gathering Place.” That description is valid even today.
Looking for something unique for our tour of Oahu, we chose Oahu Nature Tours. Our guide, Mee-na explained the difference between Oahu Nature Tours and the more touristy companies, “Oahu Nature Tours is different from most tours because we focus on nature and history. This information makes all the difference. Another difference is that we focus on small group tours which allows us to go to places large buses cannot go and we can load and unload our passengers much more quickly and then spend more time sightseeing.” <read more>

Dinner Theater / Theater / Restaurant Spotlight
The Titusville Playhouse located within the historic Emma Parrish Theater is one of our favorite venues on Florida’s Space Coast for regional theater.
Led by the energetic and charismatic general manager Steven J. Heron, the Titusville Playhouse actors take on the challenges of some of the best known roles ever portrayed on stage as well as some very meaningful, yet less-known productions. We have seen many and we have enjoyed each and every one.The Emma Parrish Theater has been a part of the Titusville, Florida downtown since 1917 when it was known as the Magnolia Theater. It showcased the best “moving pictures” of the era for an admission price of 10 cents! <read more>
