A Special Place Close By

It is odd how a lot of times people have an extensive knowledge of destinations faraway, but they hardly know anything about places that are located right under their noses.

To my great shame I have to admit that I am no exception to the rule. I was just made aware of the existence of Orchid Island right of the coast of Florida, which is relatively close to our neck of the woods.

This coastal barrier island offers all kinds of attractions worthy of a visit. It has historic places, art museums, theaters for grown-ups and children, parks and beaches, and plenty of shopping and business opportunities.

It is also home to some of the most beautiful Orchid Island Properties imaginable. The town of Orchid for instance is part of the exclusive Orchid Island Golf and Beach Club with real estate for anyone who craves easy and luxurious living.

There is nothing to worry about for those among you who cherish nature. Wildlife is not forgotten. You will find the Pelican Island National Wildlife Refuge here as well as the Archie Carr National Wildlife Refuge. The latter protects the sea turtles along the coast from Wabasso to Melbourne Beach.

Take a look around you. An extraordinary place is often closer then you realized!

This is true! We're more interested in faraway places, Lieve Zus, and hardly visit the nearby attractions :)
