Great Greenacres: Family & Fun

I love the sunshine state of Florida Ans the many small city within it. I have lived in a numerous amount of them but not many compare to Greenacres. This small city gave me a feeling of home like no other.

The first thing that gripped me about this city was the great food. The choices and flavors are just tongue tingling. I never had to eat at the same place twice even though the city is small. The selection and taste of this place was excellent! The outlet store was a great place to shop for name brands for a lot lower prices. I wish more places had an outlet or mall like Greenacres.

The attractions of the city are the beach and the many different performances and venues that come through. You never know what musical act or magician will be touring in the area and its fun to see what happens. Overall this city gave me a sense of a tight knight family that I will never forget.
