    Go out of town, maybe out to Placid Lakes and see if you can find some scrub jays to feed. These birds will eat out of your hands (especially peanuts) and they are only found in a very small area in central Florida.

    Yes, they have plenty of them. Every once in a while you will read about one getting hit by a car or truck. Usually that means that they didnot follow instructions and cross the road only at BEAR CROSSINGS.

    Lake Placid also has some very unusual trash containers. These are scattered all over town but you can enjoy them while visiting the mural sites.

As a hobby he had over 150 rose bushes and would deliver up to 150 bouquets to various places of business in and around Lake Placid. On weeksends he would deliver his roses to the hospital, nursing homes, and assisted living places.

    Favorite thing: A mural depicting the 1931 attempted Bank robbery. The robbers were captured by the Town Marshall after he had been notified by a young lad. The bank rewarded the Marshall with $100.00 and the young lad with $10.00.

    Favorite thing: Lake Placid is also known as the Caladium capital of North America. Many nearby fields are dedicated to growing these familiar houseplants. It's kind of odd to look out and see acre after acre of caladiums.

    A good crop
