A Music Festival in Sanford – Meet the Women Behind Sanford Porchfest

A music festival in Sanford, FL? We were thrilled to find out about Sanford Porchfest… Historic Sanford is known for its beautiful architecture, which, along with the vast oaks and brick streets, create a sort of oasis in an otherwise busy area of Central Florida. Something about sitting on a porch with a cool drink in the afternoon listening to music conjures up vibes of an older Florida, transcending time for a moment, and I...

Why Omakase at Jimotti’s Should be Your Next Foodie Adventure

It’s been just over a year since Junichi Takazoe made a splash in the Sanford food scene by opening Jimotti’s Restaurant.

The Culture of Craft

If you’ve been to Downtown Sanford any time in the last year (and we hope you have!) you may have wondered how we ended up with two open breweries (Wop’s Hops and Sanford Brewing Company), three slated to open, and a half dozen quality craft beer venues, each with a unique concept or twist, just blocks from each other.

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...
