Default The Wyocena Yacht Club semi-annual Florida trek

We will be making our semi-annual trek to Florida to see half of my in-laws in a month.

The plan is to spend the first day driving to Huntsville, AL and spending the night. We'll hit the US Space and Rocket Center in Hunstville the next day and again spend the night in Huntsville.

The next day we will be traveling from Huntsville to Mobile. We'll hit the USS Alabama and USS Drum the following morning and the US Naval Aviation museum in Pensacola in the afternoon. We'll spend the night in Pensacola and drive to Crystal River the next day.

Any "must eat" places in Huntsville, Mobile, or Pensacola?

Sorry Kapn, not coming through Marianna this year.

I am too.
It's the first time where things work out for us to be able to take our time driving down and to see some of the things we have wanted to see.
Still not going to be able to get to the Makers Mark distillery.

Ha! See if you can get a visit in at MSFC too while you're in Huntsville. I used to love this place for their catfish...

Note: I haven't been there since it became a BBQ joint so I can NOT attest to it's current fare, but it IS an institution of some local renown even still...

Definitely worth a visit. Just don't fill up on hushpuppies... they bring a basket to the table when the take drink orders and they are GOOD!

Didn't they used to fish the Flint? Best catfish in the world came from that river/creek. It's all pond raised now...

Phase 1 successful. We are safely in Huntsville. Tomorrow, Rocket Center. Then every freaking grocery store in the area to acquire a vast collection of regional seasoning!
