In recent years, many so-called flea markets have become decidedly more like trendy vintage clothing and antique shops than true flea markets, but that’s not the case with Sunshine Flea Market.

There are both indoor and outdoor sections to the market, and the items you’re likely to find might include local produce, arts and crafts, costume jewelry, and gently used clothes and housewares.

I don't ever write reviews but I wanted to rave about Nini's Place. My husband is a very picky eater but he loved the Pepper Steak soup with orzo, and his sirloin was cooked perfectly. I ordered the grilled fish with baked potato and a side salad. The fish was very flaky and tasted amazing, the baked potato was a good size, and the salad came with homemade croutons. Everything was delicious. We will definitely be going there again. Lake Alfred I hope you all know what a gem of a restaurant you have!

drive for DoorDash and picked up an order from here, vowing to try it myself at some point. I finally did today and was not disappointed. I will say the food is a bit greasy, but it tastes wonderful. The broccoli is cooked and seasoned to perfection. The sweet baked beans are well seasoned also. The only thing I wasn't overly impressed with was the sweet plantains. I think they may have been cooked a little too long to where the sweet flavor dissipated a bit. Other than that, everything was wonderful and full of flavor

I dont understand why anyone can rate this less than 5 star for what it is...a small, casual Cracker Seafood House with outstanding seafood. The only problem is it is so small, and it is so popular, that it is usually packed. But worth the wait. Grab a beer and hang out with locals up front. The best oysters from north Florida (an excellent oyster bar), freshest fish. Catfish fingerlings from south

Huge portions. Fluffy* white rice. Packed very well not just thrown together. I’m sticking with this place from now on.

They make homemade tortillas and sell them right there fresh and hot as if you were in Mexico. I have eaten everything on the menu and every single thing I eat is the best. And believe it or not they sell hot wings for $8 and it comes with fries they're comparable to the best hot wings you could buy in Polk County if not better. And let's talk about the staff super sweet super helpful they speak English and Spanish

She is patient enough to answer questions about the menu and if she is unsure, she double checks with a manager. The bathroom is very clean and well kept. The overall restaurant is clean with humble decor. I have been here twice and love that they decorate for each holiday season. The food was delicious and is served in generous portions! I would definitely eat here again. I love their Philly Cheese pizza!

VIDAL'S GRILL ( tu sabor boricua)
2255 U.S. Highway 17-92 North
a month ago The food is delicious! Do not let the surroundings fool you. We had mofongo with carne ahumada and mofongo with churrasco and both were excellent! Great service too. I wish I lived closer I would come every weekend!

Tasty food
quick bite supper. Surprisingly good. The salad was fresh, crisp and not over dressed. My husband had the chicken soup- the stock was rich and tasty full of tender chicken pieces and veggies. I had the lasagna it too was solid, full of cheeses and sauced just right. Husband had Rigatoni Martino with sausage and a creamy tomato sauce. It was delicious. Very nice for a chain restaurant...more like what you'd find in your neighborhood Italian place. Yum.

Took the wife and ma in law, took a good hour to get there from lakeland but it was well worth it. The staff were really friendly and the place was very inviting. Reminded us of old key west. The in law had the conch fritters and loved them. The wife and I shared some alligator bites and I had the frog legs. Very tasty indeed. For our entree the wife had the smothered chicken dinner and the in law had the coconut chicken dinner and I had the seafood combo dinner. We all left the place talking about how wonderful our meals had been. The portions of food served were big. We had a great server named Leah who really made us feel welcome as if we had been there many times before. Great food, great staff and great place. Definitely will be back.

Though it’s only slightly larger than an acre, Hollis Garden is conveniently located, full of natural beauty, and totally free to visit. It’s found on East Orange Street in Lakeland and features an impressive neoclassical design that includes distinct cultivated areas, a promenade, fountains, and an Asian-inspired koi pond. The gardens are home to thousands of species of plants, flowers, and trees; their vibrant colors are often perfectly reflected by the aptly named Mirror Lake that sits in the center of the park. It’s a beautiful attraction year-round, but especially so during the spring bloom in April and May.

Stretching nearly seven miles through the scenic Florida countryside, the TECO Auburndale Trail is a must-visit attraction for those who value quality time in the great outdoors, away from the crowds at the area’s more commercial sites. The multi-use trails are relatively flat, and appropriate for those of most ages; they’re open to bikers, runners, and walkers. The trail is accessible from both the north and south ends and includes ample parking. For much of its length, it follows the route of an old rail line from the now-defunct Seaboard Air Line Railroad. It’s common to see lots of animals along the way too, especially in the morning and evening.
