The “Unknown” Florida: Kayaking at Mount Dora Canal


Thank you for taking the time to read my blog. I have always enjoyed going out and doing things with my family when we have the time together. Many people have told me that they enjoy my posts on Facebook because it would give them ideas of things to do with their own family, so I decided to start a blog where I could share our experiences with others so that you can start building memories with your families like I have with mine.

A special thank you to Thomas Velazquez for designing the Unknown Florida logo.

All items will be labeled by the type of event, location and dollar signs. The dollar signs don’t always mean the amount of money but my perception of your bang for your buck. $ – inexpensive, $$ – moderate, and $$$ – pricey. These ratings will depend on the time, what you get for your money, how fun it was, and more if we would want to go back and do it again.

At the top you will notice links to other pages that I have added to the blog. These are all of the cool things that I have found to do in Florida, but not had the ability to do yet, which is why they are named my bucket lists. I wanted to list them just in case any of these sparks an interest in your family. Each page is a different region of Florida – North FL, East Coast, West Coast, South FL, and the Panhandle.



Truly a paddler's paradise, Florida has diverse ecosystems and pristine waters that nature lovers can really appreciate. You can spot abundant wildlife in the lush landscapes as you float through miles of pristine beauty in one of Florida's most picturesque places to go kayaking.
