On my most recent trip down south to visit family, we decided to take a day trip an hour and a half away to the Outer Banks, North Carolina! It is by far my favorite beach outside of the Caribbean and it was a perfect chance for me to relax and collect seashells.
If you find yourself wanting a day trip in Southwest Florida, I have the perfect spot for you, Solomon’s Castle! Solomon’s Castle covers 12,000 square feet and stands three stories high. Solomon has covered every exterior surface with discarded aluminum printing plates that the papers used to throw out after one use. This charming and fun castle is located in the middle of farmland passing by cattle and lots of orange groves. It’s a lovely drive for a Sunday Morning! Our friends took us here on our last visit to Florida, and I have to admit, it was a lot of fun!
