Nov 11, Florida Universities and Colleges: Something for Everyone

Florida universities and colleges range in size from giants like the University of Florida in Gainesville or the University of Central Florida in Orlando, down to the tiny new school of Ave Maria University in Collier County near Naples.

It is easy to get a good college education in Florida. You just need to figure out what to major in and which schools offer the best programs for that major. This page on Florida universities and Florida colleges is a primer that will at least give a student a place to start.

There are well over 100 Florida universities and Florida colleges, many with more than one campus location.

Florida Universities In The State University System

There are 12 universities in the State University System of Florida. This system includes the oldest public institutions in the state like the University of Florida and Florida State University.

It also includes some of the newest public schools such as Florida Gulf Coast University and Florida Polytechnic University. As of 2014, more than 341,000 students attended these Florida universities.

For most of Florida history, the University of Florida was the largest public school in the state. It has now been surpassed by the University of Central Florida and Florida International University and the University of South Florida is moving up fast.

These universities are:

  • Florida A & M University (Tallahassee)
  • Florida Atlantic University (Boca Raton)
  • Florida Gulf Coast University (Ft. Myers)
  • Florida International University (Miami)
  • Florida Polytechnic University (Lakeland)

  • Florida College System

    There are 28 colleges in the Florida College system. This system used to be known as the Florida Community College System.  Many of these Florida colleges are former two year community colleges that now offer 4 year degree programs. More than 800,000 students attend these schools.

    Not so many years ago these community colleges offered two year programs and the credits could be transferred to the 11 schools in the State University system. This gave students a chance to spend their first two years of college close to home and save some money on room and board.

    The colleges in this system are:

    • Broward College (Davie)

Nov 11, Naples, Florida. Naples on the Gulf

SEARCH THIS WEBSITE


I lived in Naples Florida for several years, and could dedicate an entire website to nothing but the town and its delights.

Maybe I will at some time in the future.

The focus of present day life in Naples are the two historic business districts: Fifth Avenue South and Third Street.

The Naples Pier is in the Third Street District.

Naples Pier

Old Naples Florida Is The Historic District

Great restaurants and shops abound in both districts, which are in the heart of what is known as Old Naples.

Downtown Naples and Old Naples feature many art shows and classic car shows in the season.

Cambier Park is a local treasure in the heart of the city that has free movies every Saturday evening in season, and free band concerts every Sunday afternoon.

Naples Beach Hotel and Golf Club

Free concerts are also held in the summers at the Naples Beach Hotel and Golf Club.

Downtown Naples also features the Sugden Theater, a community showcase for live plays, and the Norris Center, a smaller venue at Cambier Park for plays and small musical events.

Von Liebig Art Center is on the northwest corner of Cambier Park.

It features wonderful art exhibits all year long.

Naples Botanical Garden

The fountain and waterfall above is at the Naples Botanical Garden.

The Pelican Bay development just north of town features the Philharmonic Center For The Arts completed in 1989 at a cost of almost $20 million.

The “Phil”, as locals call it, has a full program of music, dance and theater. Many traveling art exhibits also stop at the adjacent art museum.

Nature lovers will enjoy visiting the Everglades, whose nearest entrance is at Everglades City. You can explore the Everglades on foot or by canoe or airboat.

Statuary in Third Street District

You can even ride in a swamp buggy. Guided tours in these uniquely Naples machines are offered by Everglades Island Airboat Tours.

The Naples Zoo at Caribbean Gardens is also a favorite Naples attraction.

The Naples area also has dozens of parks and wildlife preserves, and a world class botanical garden.

The town has done a great job of preserving its historic residences and commercial buildings. Check out Palm Cottage, maybe the oldest building in Naples.

Bonita Springs, Florida 34134

Taco Mix is a place you might never stop at if you didn’t have local information.

Taco Mix Bonita Springs, Florida

It was not even mentioned on TripAdvisor when I first visited it a few years ago, but I checked it out on Urban Spoon. It is on the right hand side of Bonita Beach Boulevard west of Tamiami Trail on the way to the beach.

The restaurant itself is almost hidden behind a convenience store of the same name. The restaurant is small and clean, and even has a drive through window that locals are well aware of but that a tourist might completely miss.

Once inside you will see a counter where you place your order from a menu on the wall above. You place your order, then sit at one of the tables or booths in the bright and open dining room to your right. A waiter or cook or owner (or all three) will bring your order to your table.

I have loved tacos since they were first introduced to me by my sister-in-law Wendy in 1973. Since then, I can’t get enough of them. Taco Mix has the best tacos I’ve ever eaten, and I’ve eaten a lot of them. In my opinion, their offerings beat the big chains all to heck.

Hard shell or soft shell ground beef tacos cost $ 0.85 each. They also have soft shell chicken tacos for $ 2.00 each. They have steak burritos, quesadillas, Cuban sandwiches and more. You can’t go wrong.

The owner and his family are Cuban, so there are plenty of dishes from that Caribbean country. One of my favorites is picadillo, a specially spiced ground beef served with rice and plantains.

This small restaurant is a place where you can feed three adults and two kids for about $20. I know it can be done because I did it. Prices are very reasonable, especially by Naples and Bonita Springs standards. There are enough locals that come in to keep prices and quality on a better level than most places that just cater to tourists.

They have beer, but no hard liquor. If you like Tex-Mex and Cuban, you will love this place.

Whole Foods Market is a great place to eat if you are in a town that is lucky enough to have one.  Although most people think of it as more of a grocery store, which it certainly is, it also has a great buffet and a separate dining area.

They are more likely to think of it as a glorified grocery store full of natural and organic foods and frequented by rich liberals and pale emaciated looking vegans. They are more than half wrong. It is also frequented by poor fat people of all political persuasions as well as dedicated meat eaters. There is something for everybody to love.

Whole Foods Market Naples, FloridaWhole Foods, Naples, Florida

For years it has been my tradition to eat lunch out. I can’t stand to stay home and eat lunch alone, and when I worked it was a good way to get out of the office and see and meet other people. There are 16 Whole Foods Markets in Florida. Having lived all over the state, I’ve been lucky to be near Whole Foods in Winter Park, Fort Lauderdale, Boca Raton, Pinecrest, Coral Gables and Naples.

Whole Foods Market Naples, FloridaHalloween at Whole Foods

The Whole Foods Market in Naples is the one I’m most familiar with, and it’s one of the best I’ve seen. I had lunch there almost every day when I lived in Naples.  It’s a social event as well as a delicious nutritious meal.

Whole Foods has several huge hot soup, salad and entree bars that have just about anything you could want for $7.99/pound. I have mastered the art of building a great lunch for usually less than $ 9.00, tax included. One end of the Whole Foods Market in Naples is a sit down area where you can take your food and eat at one of dozens of tables or counter benches.

Whole Foods Market, Naples, Florida

One of my typical lunches might include delicious blackened Mahi Mahi, a large salad with cabbage, broccoli, tomatoes, spinach and any number of other fresh organic vegetables. I do drink tap water instead of the more exotic bottled waters available, and I suspect it is filtered somewhere in the building before bubbling up in the water fountains.

The ethnic delights are constantly changing from day to day. On any give day you might have Chicken Korma (Indian), Chicken Cacciatore (Italian), Country Fried Chicken (North Florida), Greek Salad (Greece), Tacos con Carne (Mexico), Yucca con Queso (somewhere south of the border), Chili Glazed Thai Chicken (Thailand), Arroz con Pollo (ditto), Picadillo (Cuba) and any number of other great dishes from around the world.

Whole Foods Market, Naples, Florida

They also have great desserts, including something affectionately named “The Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie” because it has nothing of animal origin in it. No butter, no fat, no cream, no whatever…… and it is still delicious. Hmmmmm ……… maybe these Vegans are on to something after all.

Service at Whole Foods Market is excellent. If something is running out on the buffet, just ask. A friendly employee will run into the kitchen and get it for you. The checkout people are always smiling and friendly and act as if they love their jobs.

I am high on Whole Foods, but still do most of my grocery shopping at Publix just out of old habits and loyalty to a good old Florida firm. Grocery prices at Whole Foods are competitive in price with Publix, but I hate to spend all of my money in one place. I do, however, buy my walnuts and bison burgers at Whole Foods.


HOW TO FIND NAPLES FLORIDA

Naples Fla is in the far southwestern corner of the state at the intersection of US-41 and SR-84. These were once the main north-south and east-west routes, but have now been supplemented and replaced to some degree by I-75.

Nov 11, Melbourne Florida: Beautiful City On The Space Coast

Tags :

Category : Cocoa Beach

SEARCH THIS WEBSITE


Melbourne is a small city of about 80,000 people in southern Brevard County on Florida’s Space Coast about one hour east of Orlando.

The “new” Melbourne of today has two distinct “old” and renovated downtown areas: historic downtown Melbourne and Olde Eau Gallie, each with lots of restaurants and shops.

The old Melbourne Hotel shown on the postcard below still stands on US-1 and is used today as an office building.

Historic Melbourne Ice PlantHistoric Melbourne Ice Plant

The Melbourne city limits take in a large area of beach along the Atlantic Ocean and miles of shoreline on the Indian River Lagoon.  Other towns in the Melbourne area are Palm Bay, Melbourne Beach, Indialantic, Satellite Beach, and Indian Harbor Beach.

The large residential development communities of Suntree and Viera are in the north region of Melbourne.

The entire area has abundant shopping, dining, drinking, and recreational resources.

History of Melbourne, Florida

The city gets its name from Melbourne, Australia. The area began to be called Melbourne eight years before the town was officially established.

A name was needed because a post office was being established to serve families in the area.

The first postmaster, Cornthwaite John Hector, was an Englishman who spent much of his life in Melbourne, Australia, before opening a general store at Crane Creek. A local pioneer, Mrs. R. W. Goode, suggested the post office be named Melbourne.

The area began to thrive in the late 1800’s because of its advantageous location on the Indian River Lagoon. Farmers in the area had easy access to a good port and economic transport of their produce to profitable markets.

An interesting local character was Peter Wright, a black freedman (a slave freed during the Civil War) who became known as the “Sailing Mailman”. Wright sailed a regular schedule from Titusville to Malabar to deliver mail to the numerous riverside settlements.

Melbourne prospered along Crane Creek where it empties into the Indian River, and its fortunes were linked to Eau Gallie, another small town north of Melbourne with a nice port on the Indian River.

One of the interesting buildings still standing in Melbourne from the early days is the ice plant.  It was originally a power generating plant that also produced ice.  It is on US Highway 1 near downtown Melbourne, and is on the National Register of Historic Places.

Eau Gallie was settled by William Gleason and his friends. Gleason had earlier done a lot of development in the Miami area, and was prominent in state and national politics.

The railroad came to Eau Gallie and Melbourne in 1893, and the focus of commerce moved from the Indian River to the tracks on the higher land to the west.

In 1969, local voters consolidated Melbourne and Eau Gallie into one city and picked the name Melbourne for the new venture. Some wanted it to be named Eau Gallie; others wanted Melbogallie and any other variety of compromise names.

We are all grateful that the name Melbourne won out.

The edge of historic downtown Melbourne Florida near the Indian River was the location of the “Trysting Stairs, a wooden stairway leading up a bluff at the north end of Front Street.

The stairs provided a convenient way to reach residences on the higher ground above and became an informal meeting place which was especially popular among young lovers at the time.

The old Melbourne Hotel shown on the postcard below still stands on US-1 and is used today as an office building.

Pineda Crossing is one of the reasons I miss living in Brevard County. Its address says Roberts Road, but it is really on the west side of U.S.-1 just south of the Pineda Causeway in the Palm Shores area north of Melbourne between Suntree, Viera and Rockledge.

The menu is loaded with mostly delicious American favorites like seafood and steaks, with a few exotic specialties like Jambalaya and Blue Crab Bisque thrown in for delightful measure.

Pineda Crossing was born in 1996 from the remodeling of an old biker bar by Bob and Kathy Popp. The plain outside of the building conceals the ambiance and fine dining you will find inside. Remember the old saying “don’t judge a book by its cover”. The interior makes you feel welcome the moment you step inside. The walls and shelves are stacked with interesting artifacts including many hickory shafted golf clubs.

The magnificent wooden bar is strategically located between the two dining rooms and is a nice place to relax while waiting for our table. They serve great drinks and the ambiance is comfortable and homey.

Bob and Kathy take care of the management and hospitality, and their Chef and part owner is Rand Morgan, graduate of the CIA (Culinary Institute of America). He is arguably the best gourmet chef in Brevard County.

Pineda Crossing is open for lunch and dinner, and the lunch crowd includes local business people including the staffs of nearby Florida Today and USA Today. You know it has to be good or these newspaper people would write bad things about it.

The menu is incredibly diverse. It always features two or three fresh fish, steak and chop specials, along with some pasta dishes. These specials change nightly, and are in addition to their standard delicious seafood and steak offerings.

My favorite dinners here include their fresh daily catch. I love their blackened grouper. I also like that most ethnic of American foods, fried chicken. One of their signature dishes is Chicken Augusta, a pan-fried chicken breast served with mashed sweet potatoes and vegetables and served with pecan-honey vinaigrette.

They have wonderful large fresh salads, and many desserts including one of the best Key Lime pies in the State of Florida.

This is such a special place for me that my sweetheart of long ago held a birthday party for me here, one of those “ending in zero” birthdays that could have been gloomy except for the great food and good company in this wonderful establishment.

The value of vodka: Cocktail sippers love it, bartenders think it's bland

Cheeselandia Orlando

A little wedge of Wisconsin was brought to Central Florida to share. Their most famous and award-winning cheesy residents are hitting the road and showcased at Winter Park for a VIP cheese event at the Winter Park Farmers’ Market on Thursday, November 8.

This special gathering included hors d’oeuvres from Swine & Sons, an opportunity to mingle with Wisconsin cheese experts, a build-your-own cheeseboard station, Instagram photo ops, a few mystery surprises, and – of course – all the Wisconsin cheese our hearts (and mouths) could ever desire. This was a ticket to experience the best of Cheeselandia without having to leave home.

Inside, there’s a build-your-own cheeseboard station that ran out of different cheeses and meats to add to the plate if you don’t find it quickly. However, we turned around and added items from the main station of treats for us to try.

One of the most fun part of the night is having an awesome photo op as well as designing our own cheeseboard. We won’t post our awesome photo op, but I’ll show you my plate…that is probably messier than anything.

Along with the bites, we were offered white wine, red wine, rosé, and beer. Certain drinks tasted better with different bites. To learn about pairing, we experienced a nice cheese pairing.

The different types of Wisconsin cheeses could be paired as so. My favorite was the Sartori Merlot Bellavitano with dark chocolate, while others had different palates.

So many cheeses were present that have been aged various number of years.

To top off a fun and cheesy night, we were given a lunch box with a number of cheese we were allowed to choose from the available options provided!
