A Walk Down Main Street USA

I live near the cutest little town ever. I’ve been wanting to walk around in the town center and take pictures for some time and I finally got around to it this weekend. I’m no professional photographer, but I enjoy taking pictures. I think I got some decent ones to represent this adorable town. I could probably go back a dozen more times and get new, completely different photos each time.

There are several restaurants, many with outdoor seating. There’s an old fashioned barber shop and soda fountain, and I’m in love with the used bookstore. Every Friday night there’s live music in the square and there’s a farmer’s market every Saturday. Nearly every month, some special event, festival, or car show takes place in town. On any given evening, you can see couples strolling hand in hand, seniors relaxing in the swings, watching people walk by, and kids enjoying ice cream cones and splashing in the fountains. I could sit, basking in the balmy air, hair fluttering in the breeze, a smile of contentment on my face while watching people and creating stories about their lives in my head every night. Heaven!

I hope you enjoy a glimpse into this cute little town.

    I like this town so much because it just reminds me of a modern-day Mayberry.

    My kids love to play in the fountains located in the middle of town. I love to watch them play!

    I know the Spanish moss eventually kills the tree, but I actually like the drapey look of Florida trees covered in moss.

    I just like the look of the pattern here.

    Don't you just love this old-fashioned gas pump? (And the BBQ's pretty darn good too!)

    There are several old firetrucks outside The Heritage Museum. Kids love them!

    This also sits outside the museum. It's like going back in history looking at all these old machines.

    This arch stands in the middle of town and the West Orange Trail runs right through it. Tons of joggers and cyclists pass through here each day.

    This is a cute little bed and breakfast in town. Each room is decorated differently with unique furniture.

    I don't think anything says "little old town" like an old-fashioned barber shop!
  • Fountain 12 of 12

    The tiles around the fountain in the center of town not only look cool, but show evidence of the citrus industry that made this town.
