If you’re visiting Florida and are looking for a quaint afternoon, be sure to check out Point of View Antiques in Fanning Springs. It’s 2 1/2 hours northwest of Disney, but worlds apart.
Normally this place would have escaped my radar. It’s nowhere near any main roads. But back when I worked full time at my family’s gourmet food business, Point Of View Antiques was a customer of ours. They regularly bought our products and sampled them often. I always wanted to visit, and we finally got there!
Afterwards, there are plenty of great barbeque restaurants scattered along US 19. We grabbed some slow-smoked brisket, then went over to Fanning Springs State Park along the Suwannee River. It was a misty-rainy day, but the food was great and so was the state park.
