Fifty thousand gallons of wine come out of Lakeridge each year - it's Florida's largest - and locals visit and revisit all the time. Not just when friends and family come to town, but because the winery hosts an abundance of family-friendly festivals and free live music events all year long with food, crafts, even fun photo-ops. That said, even if you don't happen to make it during one of their larger shindigs, Lakeridge runs free tours and tastings all day long, every day of the week, every 20 minutes or so. You'll start off with a short film about the vineyard's history, then move on for a stellar view of the vines and wrap it up in the tasting room. The whole thing takes about 45 minutes. And of course, you can your favorite by the bottle â" or the case â" before you head out.
- Free Things to Do: "Check the Lakeridge Winery website for its year-round calendar of events, such as chocolate tastings, Christmas markets, free concerts and more, that the entire family can enjoy."
- Romantic Things to Do: "Check the website because they often have special events going on throughout the year."
- Best for Free Things to Do Because: Chip 'N Dale's Campfire Sing-A-Long has it all: character interaction, music, sweet treats and a classic Disney film, all amid the great outdoors.
- Best for Romantic Things to Do Because: This is a picturesque spot that lets you escape the city life and relax with some good vino.
