Eustis Things to Do: 19 reviews and 16 photos

Florida is tropical paradise with year round warm weather awaits...all I have to do is step off my porch deck;-)I have since put a Florida "summer kitchen"(outside stainless steel sink and cooking burners like the old southern plantations once had. Its kinda popular here and doesnt heat up the house in summer.

In my yard I have Orange trees, Hong Kong Orchids, Sable Palms, Bouganvilla, wildflowers and camelias. For which i do ZERO yardwork other than cutting the grass;-)hehehe

To me has Florida only two seasons.
1-The hot/rainy season June/July/August when tropical rains come at 3pm daily to cool things off. I love the smell after the rain. This is the time of year I travel.

2-The ideal season Oct-May which to me is almost 8 months of no rain and high 70F(21C) low 50F(10C) weather almost like clockwork. 7+ months of spring.

-Nieghbors wave hi and smile
-life is slow
-days are sunny
-sunsets are stunning(like this one)

A pleasant place to be......

I LOVE my Florida;-)
