Things to do in Florida:

  • Can You Escape? The gist is this: You and your teammates are all locked in a room. You have to search through the room to find all the clues that will lead to your escape – but you only have 60 minutes to do so.
  • The Sunken Gardens Today I want to share with you two of my most recent videos, both done at the Sunken Gardens in St. Petersburg.
