my family is coming to florida for about a 2 week vacation, we are spending the 1st week in Pensacola area, Perdido-key and the 2nd in Orlando (disney), Ive gone thru the boards but need some further direction. there are 6 of us, all grown adults (2 parents and 4 "kids" (all over 21)) we have been to florida in the past but its been about 20 years since we've been to Orlando. we're from portland and are very spoiled by all the good local food here and enjoy eating out while on vacation. since its been so long since we've been there any help would be most appreciated so here it goes, we really like local places, places that offer a good/fun happy hour, somethin unique.. or just down right delicious!
in oralndo, we'll actually be there over the 4th holiday. we wont have a car but are staying at the grand cypress near disney. we have no issues with public transport or having to walk somewhere, we love to try new things and any sort of ethnic food or a local favorite would be cool. we're trying not to spend TONS of money on meals since we will be there for so long. no vegetarians or anything so we are pretty easy going...
in pensacola, we will have a car there and will actually have a place with a kitchen (staying at the Spanish Key) so we'll be sure to hit up the fish markets and take advantage of being on the gulf. we are more familiar with pensacola as we were just there before Hurricane Katrina, but again, any local insights or cant miss places would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for your input!! :)
