Detroit resort motel

I'll bet that you just can"t wait to jump in a hot tub at this resort.

    I wasn't aware that people dream about resorts in...Detroit. While vacationing in the F-L-A...

    This is so fantastic I want to eat it. And of course I have to ask--where is it?

    I'm sure the "Detroit" name comes from the huge amount of folks from Michigan (and the Detroit area in particular) that vacationed down in FLA for the winters. Heck, my city owns a condo complex in Clearwater. You put your name on the list, and if there's an opening, you can move there when you're 55. Not a bad deal, really.

    I'd love to see this for myself. Too bad it's just too far out of the way for me on this trip to pick it up. Next time I'm down here (Pensacola), I'm going to have to spend a couple days exploring central FLA.

    Very nice. I especially look forward to the "ELECTRIC HEAT."
  • Kenneth Knight 6y

    I think that you are right, loungelistener. I think that it is nostalgic for people. I hope that you have fun exploring.

    Thank you, J.

    So this is why Detroit has a bad reputation!
  • Kenneth Knight 6y

    I'm sorry that you had to find out this way, Brandon.

    This reminds me of the Valley Forge sign that you posted...sitting at that same light, I thought it would be fun to do a set of FL hotels with names of OTHER places. Cracks me up.
  • Kenneth Knight 6y

    I know, that always seems like a questionable choice to me.

    Alwayz enjoy the way you take the time to "high-lite" and frame your FloridaPast clicks!
