Weekend Trip to Wildwood, Florida

This weekend we visited my dad who lives in Wildwood, Florida. If you’ve never heard of it, Wildwood is a small town about an hour drive north of Orlando.Every few months, I love to come visit my dad and escape the city to soak in the old Florida charm and just slow down for a few days. If you take the time to visit, you’ll quickly notice the oak tree lined streets that give this town a nostalgic look and feel.

One of my favorite times of year to visit Wildwood is the in fall. The air is a little crisp but its still sunny and warm when you’re playing out in the sun. Harvest is definitely in the air with lots of pumpkin and scarecrow decorations adorning almost every house, big or small. It’s one of those places where everybody knows everybody and saying hello and good morning is still welcomed and customary.

Another thing I love about this town is that it’s full of churches. Some old, some new, but I feel each one contributes to the town’s peaceful ambiance as you stare at them driving by. Its comforting to visit a place where almost every resident could be found worshiping on Sunday mornings then hitting up the local eateries for brunch.
