Our day begins with a guided tour of Sunken Gardens. In 1903 a plumber by the name of George Turner, Sr. bought what is known as Sunken Gardens. The property had a large sinkhole and a shallow lake. Using an elaborate maze of clay tiles, he drained the lake, leaving a rich muck that was ideal for his favorite hobby - horticulture . Fruit trees on the property led the Turners to open a roadside tropical fruit stand, followed by a small gift shop which opened in 1924. By 1935, the gardens were so successful that the Turners put other ventures aside and focused on Sunken Gardens.
Lunch is at Spring Garden Family Restaurant. Our choices include Cod; fried, grilled or pan fried, Homemade Lasagna, Grilled Chicken Breast, entrees come with choice of soup or salad, dessert and a fountain drink or coffee.
