Here in small town Lakeland, it's all about cultivating community and supporting local businesses. A staple in our community is Hillcrest Coffee, a home away from home. Inside, the house turned coffee shop is filled with music, art by makers like Bump Galletta and caffeine from local Ethos Roasters.
I love downtown Dunedin on the weekends! There’s never a shortage of things to do. You can grab a bite to eat anywhere on Main Street; Casa Tina and Pisces are amazing. Have a beer with friends at a local brewery; I'd recommend Cueni. There’s almost always a festival or local market happening downtown.
Don't miss the SHINE festival in St. Petersburg; every year artists gather to beautify the city through murals and street art. From this year’s SHINE edition my favorites are 'The Florida Panther' by Illsol and the 'Astronaut' by Sarah Page. My all time favorite is ‘Pinocchio’ by Mark Gmehling.

It's right in the heart of many local favorite restaurants, fitness facilities and coffee shops like: Panther Coffee, Soul Tavern and Anatomy Fitness. As a content creator, I film for various platforms and feature local fitness and wellness companies. It's a win-win, because it offers me the opportunity to share how wellness-oriented Miami really is while giving exposure to local companies through my craft.
