    The Silver Dollar is the BEST!

    It's pretty much impossible to get there from the Tampa airport, though.

    We have stayed there for a shoot. We loved it! It's a lot of fun, and it's a really pretty place, too. Lots of good restuarants nearby.

    I've been shooting there since 1978 when it was first built. Great folks. Lots of fun and good food and NO SNOW. You'll love it!

    I am already anticipating the Dixie Grand and Silver Dollar. Great way to get a two week break from Winter.

    smsnyder- With the new regulations, I thought that passengers were no longer welcome on flights.

    Looks like a giant trailer court to me waiting for a tornado to hit.

    That's not funny, Joe. I have tried to get there from the Tampa airport and it really is impossible. I wasted an entire round-trip flight plus the rental car fee and never got to shoot!

    S&M Snyder,

    You have to be joking. I have run to the airport from Silver Dollar to pick up friends numerous times. I don't think it's ever taken me more than 35 minutes even when traffic is a bit heavy.

    Mapquest says its 17.1 miles and most of it is toll road at 60 Mph... how were you getting there?

    Buy a GPS for your care and come and join the fun!

    Bob

    Received my camping space confirmation for the Dixie today. Shooting, golf and lots of shrimp and strawberries.

    If you are not a regular plan on shooting the bad traps regularly

    Unfortunately, the bad traps are the only ones accessible from the Tampa Airport.
