Posted by Edison Ford Winter Estates On March 14th

This has been a great season of day trips to some of our favorite Florida spots.

Although there is waiting list for the March trip to Sarasota and Selby Gardens, Ringling Museum and opening of the new James Terrell sculpture exhibition, there are still a few openings for the final trip in April to Tampa to visit the Henry Plant Museum, historic Tampa Yacht Club and restoration of the historic 1930s Floridan Hotel.directors tours march 2014
