I told y’all to stay tuned for part 2 of Christmas Eve in Florida and here it is! I was so excited to take Nate out to Maxwell Groves in Avon Park, Florida. (You may remember the last time I blogged about it here.) I talked his ear off about their homemade orange ice cream and fresh squeezed orange juice for months prior to our trip down. You’d have to ask him, but by the look on his face that day, I’d say both the ice cream and the orange juice lived up to the hype!
I absolutely love places like this – tucked away like a perfectly kept secret, full of southern charm and hospitality. Their store is stocked with tons of amazing local items, too. I most definitely brought home a bottle of Orange Blossom Honey Wine, some local orange blossom honey, and Everglades seasoning! (Fun fact: Everglades seasoning is made right in my hometown of Sebring, Florida! And you can totally buy it on Amazon.com .. which is weird to me. Ha!)
If you’re ever in the Highlands County area, make sure to stop in to Maxwell Groves and buy yourself some Florida goodies!! This is no tourist trap, it’s the real deal!
