MFP Destinations: A Guide to Washington, D.C.

Only three-ish hours away from Miami by plane, Washington, D.C. is one of our favorite weekend getaways. There are two reasons we usually find ourselves there every year:

1. Some of our best friends live there.
2. Flights are cheap.

Back in April, we made our way back to the nation’s capital for a different reason: to eat. Beyond the free museums, parks and other historic attractions, there’s a ton of great food and libations just waiting to be consumed. We discovered that firsthand as we devoured thousands upon thousands of calories for the sake of research.

While we could have easily just eaten ourselves to death on the trip, we tried to balance things out with a few non-food activities. Below, you’ll find the fruits of our labor.

When we think of Orlando dining, we immediately think of Winter Park. Take a short drive up from Downtown Orlando, and you’ll find yourself among an extensive roster of restaurants in the city’s Park Avenue artery. If you’re hungry, there’s no better place to satisfy your stomach’s desires.

MFP Destinations: A Guide to St. Augustine

Although food is our main passion, another big passion of ours is travel. The two things go hand in hand, so we’re launching a new series that combines these two interests: MFP Destinations. Whenever we manage to get outside of South Florida — whether for a week or just a weekend– we’ll be posting our own guide of what to do in that specific city.

For this first installment, we’re focusing on St. Augustine. Located roughly five hours north of Miami by car, it’s the nation’s oldest city. As a result, there’s a lot of history here; expect to learn quite a bit about the city — and Florida in general – as you explore St. Augustine’s attractions. It’s not all forts and museums, though. There’s a bustling culinary scene as well, as we quickly found out.

Here are some of the best spots we discovered during our weekend trip there.
