Tail of the Gecko & Peck's Old Port Cove Restaurant Drive - February 22nd Our Z's want to stretch their legs, and what better way than to drive the Tail of the Gecko again! This twisty gem is tucked away in the middle of the state and has a personality all its own.
OK, there may not be 318 curves here like the Dragon, but this well hidden Florida drive is well worth the effort to find it! At 12.8 miles, Florida’s Tail of the Gecko is similar in length to North Carolina/Tennessee's Tail of the Dragon (11 miles), but it naturally falls way short in the “curves” department, in fact 291 curves short. That's right, only 27 curves on the Gecko. But remember, in a land of long straight Florida roads, 27 turns for that length of pavement is a rarity, indeed. Florida may not have mountains, canyons and the ultimate twisty roads, but what it does have is some of the country's best riding weather when the rest of the country can't figure out how they're going to get their car dug out of the snow! We will end up at Peck's Old Port Cove Restaurant for some outdoor dining. (You don't have to stay for lunch, but bring a box lunch to eat in your car on the way home)
Howey Mansion & Lake Harris Hideaway Drive - March 16th The Club to tour the Howey Mansion in scenic Howey-in-the-Hills. The Mansion is a 7188 square foot restored Mediterranean Revival Style home and is listed with the U.S. National Register of Historic Places. We will wander through the 20 room mansion built in 1925 by the community’s founder, William J. Howey, and stroll over the 15 acres surrounding, bringing a nostalgic feeling of how life was “Once upon a time......”
The tour will be guided by a resident expert and exclusive to our club. The tour will include the Mansion and associated gardens. As an added bonus, lunch is scheduled at the Lake Harris Hideaway. This family restaurant has a broad menu with an excellent location. Recognizing COVID-19 issues, the beautiful outside deck, where you can sit and enjoy the gorgeous view of Lake Harris, has been secured for lunch.
The drive will be scenic and the tour promises to be a 5 star experience.
