Daytrips from Tampa (Lutz) area? Dives, Shacks, etc.

southernwayfarer | Dec 16, 2008 07:35 AM

I’m headed down to the Tampa area to visit in-laws for the Holidays and I’m looking for a few suggestions for day-trips. Combination food and destination type things within about a 2 hour drive in any direction.

I’m open to anything fun but enjoy the outdoors, off-the-beaten-path, weird and unusual. I’m not looking for anything fancy, in fact just the opposite. More Anthony Bourdain / Diners & Dives type of local spots that might have one item on the menu and a lot of local flava – run down seafood shacks etc. Suggestions or directions to other threads are most welcome. Thank you in advance.

P.S. A google search pulled up a Diners, Drive-ins and Dives suggestion for the grilled octopus at Keegan's. Do the locals concur?

P.S.S. I'm considering a daytrip to the Homosassa / Chassahowitza / Crystal
River area so suggestions in that area would be great.
