Perhaps it is a bit odd to write about a franchise restaurant for a local tourism page; but the service and ambiance provided by Mike Xifaras and the service staff of the Palm Coast Carrabba’s warrant more than just a friendly nod.
I say, you gotta LOVE IT! The ROAR of motorcycles up and down A1A competing with the roar of the surf, which seems especially noisy this week, for some reason.
I am sitting on a dock overlooking the Intracoastal Waterway (ICW) with my camera close at hand. I am mesmerized by all the activity starting with the natural beauty of the ICW.
One of the things I love about living in Flagler County is its close proximity to so many beautiful places. I love that I live minutes from Flagler Beach. I own a big beautiful home for much less of what it would cost in other counties boarding the beach. Flagler Beach has the closest exit to I95 in the whole State of Florida so I can jump right on it or take US1 South to Daytona or North to St. Augustine. Both destinations are 30 minutes from home!
Life just keeps getting better on our little island! Although we live in a tourist town, we often forget what it feels like to be a stranger visiting in a new town. Having just come off of a vacation "Cruisin with Capt. Nick", I have a new appreciation of the importance of making visitors in Flagler Beach feel welcome.
