Cedar Key VIP

CK1 island

Cedar Key HomeThis stand alone slice of pure Florida is one of my favorite getaways to take people for a tour! It has a rich history interrupted by hurricanes. An industry or two lost to a relatively quiet new existence. There are some oddball things here, things that are off-putting to some as they have preconceived notions of what a “key” is or what scale a Gulf Beach must be… This is a place true to itself as evidenced by taking a walking tour and exploring something beyond words. This is a real town, a real place with the solid blue collar industry of clamming, the barnacle and rust clad boats are not set pieces. Tourism is allowed but it not overwhelming except during events and festivals. The city beach is small and so is never considered my focus. A dollar goes far here when it comes to accommodation. As well the waters are something to be seen, by kayak, fishing or tour boat. Exploration of the original Key is a must. Weathered remains of a pencil factory and a historic 19th century graveyard. So much to do! I love helping people plan overnight trips from Central Florida and helping them see the real Florida!

The Best Craft Beer in Florida?

Shuttle Ripleys FixedI do craft beer tours and take groups around in Central Florida and what I love most about the Craft Beer scene is that everyone has a different and usually strong opinion! That is one of the best things about craft beer. That there are some stand outs to be sure but it is nice to see the diversity involved and all the fresh ideas! Through hard work and sometimes with the help of location some Micro-Breweries seem to get more press but I am equally fascinated by all of them and believe they all deserve a chance. That is not to say that all of them are indeed equal. Some are very inspired and can really create something unique. Some miss the mark entirely and rush things out that are not quite right or should be dumped. Even if you happen upon a Dud the journey will still be worth it. One thing I do know is that the only opinion that truly matters is yours. Just be sure to realize that it is an opinion and everyone has one!

The Best Craft Beer in Florida?

Happy Birthday Pub Crawl Craft Beer Birthday Tour!

Beer and Vine
Doing it up right! Picked up at a nice house so there is no need for the group to drive later and headed into Orlando. The Milk District was first on the list to start our journey! The first place was Barley And Vine Biergarten and it did not disappoint! It has a great feel and the layout was perfect! There was a nice inside bar area and an outside area with both covered and uncovered seating. I really want to get back on Sundays and enjoy some Brauts off the grill. This is a place that is a must and I heartily recommend it. The beer was all well received, great variety with no duds. The Bartender was very knowledgeable as well and got everyone exactly what tastes they were looking for. There were just enough screens with various matches on to set the scene without being overpowering. This is a real treasure of a place that really has a great identity.

Next up was Bowigens and their flights were amazing and the games were fun. The Taps were full of flavorful selections and everyone was very familiar with their offerings and friendly. The layout was very nicely done and every glass was eagerly drained. This is a great spot to hit that really holds down this part of town. What is on tap is the star of the show! 7 Layer Stout, Downstairs Wife and Phat Sparrow were drunk down with glee! It was great to see the eclectic mix of people that were enjoying the wide range of kegs available. Needless to say this is a must see.

Wops Hops Group

Next up was Wop’s Hops in Sanford. Always great seeing the historic side of town being revitalized. This place never disappoints with its historic Fish market location and bold selection of beers. There was allot of variety to be had and the group tried everything. Everything from Morning Wood to Pope’s Poison with some Raspberry Ale was drunk dry! The unique layout has a nice outside area that adds a special flavor. This is the place to be if you make it into this area.

Winter Park Beer Company offered up a food and beer pairing that was amazing and had a wide selection. The Sangria was very flavorful and as close to perfect as I ever tasted and the Jalapeno hefeweizen was amazing as well. There were some IPAS that were taken home in growlers and everyone loved the unique feel of the place. David really knows how to host as well as brew. The decor and flowing floor plan allowed the tour plenty to explore and the taps allowed them plenty to drink!

I am grateful for all of the variety in the Orlando Microbrewery and pub scene. It is always a great time to be able to show it off for people in a way that keeps it safe. On my tours coolers are welcome aboard as well so the fun never stops. Be sure to stop by www.flfunshuttle.com and book your tour today! Craft beer is a passion and a hobby. Do not do a corporate tour. Do it right!

Wekiva Island – Better Than Ever – The River, the Sun and the Wedding Party!

PhotoGrid_1441546777252As you know my many travels bring me to some of the top spots in all of Central Florida. As a Tour Operator who also officiates offbeat weddings I see it all! Yesterday I made it back to Wekiva Island with a wedding party for a day they will never forget! It is a wonderful mix of nature and much more! There was some news a while back about a gator encounter and because of that some people have not made it out there lately. I am here to tell you that is a big mistake. It is really an amazing and unique place to enjoy some time and recharge your batteries or celebrate a major event! I challenge you to stand out by the river and forget about the King Cobra escape across town, the media and the elections. The Canoeing and water sports perfectly compliment the down home activities like Corn Hole and lazing in the sun. It is also a plus that you can enjoy some beer or wine legally and responsibly while watching the water go by! Get back out there and enjoy yourselves at the Tooting Otter and if you end up needing safe affordable award winning group transportation I am always available to get you door to door. Please like and share this with everyone you know that needs or deserves a special day! Steve Flfunshuttle.com

Elope Orlando! Weddings for Introverts!

You don’t wear your parent’s clothes. Why redo their wedding? If you want an amazing one of a kind wedding you have come to the right place! In the past I worked too many weddings where things cost a fortune and the event was something that did not fit the couple at all. I do custom themed weddings that are tailored to both of you and your small group. This usually entails transporting up to 16 on your own private bus, where you can BYOB. I then officiate your wedding at a great place like a microbrewery or alligator park and much, much more! Then, we get a reception in and bid you farewell to start your new married life! Save a ton and do it your way! Love Wins! All are welcome with me!
