Where I stayed
Our trip inland took us via Tampa bay and Tampa and along I 4 route back to Orlando. Tampa is a fairly large city which dates back to 1528 when the spanish landed there with the intention of starting a colony. Now it is a large city and back in the 1920's it was famous for cigar making - you can still buy cigar from authentic factories.
We are staying to the south of International Drive this time very close to Disney - Lake Beuna Vista. We have arrived safely at our new hotel. It is a beautiful Hilton hotel which is brand new and
we have a 1 bedroom suite with a kitchen and beautiful bathroom
Not the same views of the sea we have had for the last week but we can see Disney and all over Orlando from
our balcony so is quite good. Off to Kennedy Space centre tomorrow and Merritt Island which should be good. Hoping to see the last of the space shuttles in situ before the programme is shut down later this year.
