The fourth and final bracket in the ‘Seven Wonders of Old Florida’ March Madness competition created by Old Florida’s Rick Kilby and myself included nominations from our facebook friends. We selected the Top 64, and then divided them into brackets – Flamingo, Palm, Seminole, and Sunshine.
Here are the contestants from the SUNSHINE bracket. Just click the links to access their information and location. We hope this list will lead you to new discoveries as you map out your own Old Florida road trip.
