Celery City is BIGGER and BETTER!

Raise your hand if you’ve been waiting for that beautiful space on the corner of 2nd and Palmetto to open so that you can hang out in their perfect outdoor seating area!! Umm, me me over here, all hands raised high and proud. If you’ve not already stepped foot into the outdoor seating area at Celery City then what have you been waiting for? I’m guilty of having not seen it all lite up at night just yet, but with...

Ah, the Kentucky Derby. It’s one of those traditional events that seems a little silly until you’re in the thick of it, dressed to the nines in Southern summer attire, feeling a mint garnish tickle your nose with each sip of your julep, and smiling for a picture in your fabulous hat. Lucky for all of us, Juleps and Jockeys will take place next weekend at Celery City, and you can enjoy all the trappings of a classic Kentucky Derby...

The District in Sanford – Deliciously Tasteful

One of the wonderful things about living and working Downtown is the anticipation that builds as a new business lays its roots in our little town. Most recently, the District, a new gastropub on 2nd street, set the town abuzz as owners Brad Plummer and Anne McNamara began renovating their corner storefront, mysteriously swathing the windows in butcher paper for several months. Since I ride my bike past the space (located in the Avalon...

Enjoy the real Florida on horseback right here in Sanford!

Hidden Palms Ranch is a hidden gem and we are ecstatic that they are just a hop, skip and a jump away from downtown Sanford. Claudia, her two boys and myself were lucky enough to experience this peaceful excursion and we loved it! When we arrived, owner Beki greeted us like we were old friends. We were introduced to the three horses that call Hidden Palms Ranch home and I just love their names! There is Moose, Marigold and Lemon...
