St. Patrick’s Day Parade & Festival

There were several floats that were really neat with lots of decorations. My girls enjoyed seeing the Miss America contestants, all from different counties around Florida, riding in antique cars. There were fire trucks and there was even a Swat vehicle that looked liked a ...

The beef tenderloin dish was served with bourbon glaze onion marmalade and pale sweet mashed potatoes. My favorite Valentine's Day Special was the olive oil poached ...

Weather Report: Beautiful Day at Lago Mar

Hi! What a spectacular day at Lago Mar! My weather report: perfectly sunny and about 75 degrees. I just had the most delicious lunch with my second oldest daughter, Dani, outside on the Sea Grape Terrace. I enjoyed a Greek salad with blackened Mahi Mahi, which is one of our Spa Cuisine entrees. Dani ordered fish and chips from the "kids" menu. I have to admit that I stole about 5 of her fries. Lago Mar has the best french fries! Dani ...

It’s Beginning to Look A lot Like Christmas at Lago Mar

Hi! It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas at Lago Mar! We have a tall, beautiful tree in the main lobby, which is decorated with gold hydrangeas, glittery gold balls, silver butterflies and birds and precious angel ornaments. The fireplace in this lobby is also stunning with its gold and silver accents and pale green poinsettias. My favorite part of the resort at this time of the year is The Gallery Walkway with the fresh garlands crisscrossing all the ...
