There is a small town in central Florida called Arcadia. Unlike the beach-y tropical areas most people associate with this southern state, Arcadia gives the appearance of a western town. It is a rodeo town with farms, groves and ranches surrounding the area. Here you will find victorian style houses (both mansion and cottage) and an old, very quaint main street lined with antique shops. If you enjoy antique hunting, Oak Street houses many stores for you to investigate. The atmosphere here is peaceful and the small diners serve up delicious home made fare. I visited Arcadia on a day that the town did not host a rodeo or festival so I had no problem parking right on the main street in the historic down town. Please stop by. This town will remind you of a quieter more peaceful time in your life.
