3 Bucket-list things you can only do in Florida!
Whether you are looking to make South Florida your permanent home, or are planning a seasonal residency, during the winter season, you will find that we South Floridians have some interesting options to keep us entertained.
In an article published by Orlando Weekly® online, we found a pictorial slide show featuring some very interesting ideas to create some lasting memories and check off a few (never thought-of) bucket list items in the Sunshine State.
According to the author, “What were talking about here are the absolute most Florida things you can possibly do in Florida. So, with that in mind, what you have here are a few truly unique activities that you only do in The Sunshine State.”
Here are our top three pics;
Eat lunch with an astronaut at Kennedy Space Center
Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex l Kennedy Space Center, SR 405 l (321) 449-4400. If you’ve ever played the old “if you could have a meal with anyone, dead or alive, who would it be” game and answered “astronaut,” now’s chance to make it a reality. Sit down to a buffet style meal with a veteran NASA astronaut at the Kennedy Space Center and hear firsthand what it’s like to be blasted into outer space. Ask anything you’ve ever wanted to know about being an astronaut and then snap a selfie with a space explorer.
Visit JFK’s vacation bunker
Palm Beach Maritime Museum l 2400 N Flagler Dr, West Palm Beach l 561-832-7428
In just ten days, the army built this tiny bunker off the coast of Palm Beach to protect our most attractive president in the case a nuclear attack occurred while the POTUS was vacationing. Back before the events of the Cuban Missile Crisis, the country needed a confidential place to stash President Kennedy in case Fidel Castro tried to blow up the country. Now, the secret’s out, and anyone can find the hideaway, which was built with a decontamination room with showers to wash off radioactive particles and a command center big enough to house 30 survivors.
Step inside the world’s smallest police station
World’s Smallest Police Station l 105 St. James Street, Carrabelle l 850-697-2585
This tiny station started out as a police phone box built to protect police officers from inclement weather while they made calls, but since its creation in 1963, it has been promoted to full “station.” The booth is more of a museum than a functioning office however, as the insides are crammed with the municipal building’s history. The spot was featured on Ripley’s Believe It Or Not® and The Today Show®, but has also received a lot of negative attention and has even been shot at before.
