Chili's in Le Vista in Orlando

Have you been to Chili's lately? Hubby and I loves to dine out ... a lot ... and one of the many places that we love to hang out is #Chilis at #LeVista in #Orlando, Florida. The truth is, there are times that we are lazy to cook after a long day so; dining out is an easy option.
Half Flatbread Appetizer
There are 5 reasons why we love to dine here.
1. Chili's is Conveniently located to where we live. It probably less than 5 minutes away.
2. Affordability of the food so; the price alone is like a magnet for us.
3. Comfortable Ambiance and though there are instances that this place is crowded , guests are seated in a timely manner which is really important.
4. Friendly Servers and not passive. You know what I mean right? Servers here knows their menu so; when diners are having a hard time ordering, they can suggest for you. Pretty awesome!
5. Pleasant Experience and that's because the food is delicious.

Having Lunch at the Beau Rivage in Biloxi : The Buffet

The Buffet, that's what the buffet area called in the Beau Rivage Resort. It's one of the four casual dining areas in this casino and resort. It is true that the variety of food selection is unrivaled and the tastes of every menu they served is truly delicious in fact; the Buffet at Beau Rivage is my favorite buffet location in Biloxi. I love the variety of food that they have, the appetizing desserts and the over-all ambiance of this place. On this particular visit, we dine in for lunch because I was craving for crawfish.
Having my dessert at The Buffet.
Aside from the casual dining: The Buffet, Terrace Café, Stalla, and Coast Restaurant; they also have Fine Dining areas which are : BR Prime and Jia. For those who are like me who enjoys dining than gambling, there's a lot of areas to hang out in this resort. They have Snacks, Roasted Bean, Scoops, as well as Pool Bar and Cafe', the places where guests can enjoy Quick Bites while having a good time here in the Beau Rivage Casino and Resort.
My 3rd plate LOL ... eating crawfish. is the only food that I ate on this visit ,
well ... aside from the dessert.
Do you want to know if they have Bars and Lounges? Yes, they have. For sophisticated dining experience, check out Eight75. I still have to ask them next time why Eight75. How did they come up with that name. If you feel like dancing 'till dawn then check out The Coast Nightclub. Their Breeze Bar is also nice to hang out where guests can enjoy a cocktail while playing the video poker.
This gigantic flower vase at the center of this hallway smells great
because they keep the flowers fresh all the time.
Hubby and I loves to dine in the Buffet on a Wednesday because of the discount they offer. We both love the ambiance of this place and it's huge. The hosts and servers are pretty much on their feet! They don't keep the guests waiting for so long. Once we pay our meal, they have us seated right where we want to be seated.

We booked a hotel room for a week here and we stayed in one of the top floors. Our room has the biggest bathroom and a gigantic bathtub with an awesome view of the Biloxi City.
Heading to the Beau Rivage is about 15 minutes from our place.
Anyway, this bits and pieces of information is all I can share for now but, I will be sharing more about Beau Rivage and the gulf coast area next time. Thanks for stopping by.

Enjoying the Visit at the Kennedy Space Center : #Atlantis

As a Florida resident, I get to enjoy the affordable Annual Pass price in Disney World as well as in Kennedy Space Center. My annual pass will expire soon and I was hoping to use it one more time before it does. Visiting the Kennedy Space Center is always fun and exciting for me. Each visit is a  different experience but, I enjoyed every second of it. The Atlantis is an attraction that is truly spectacular! Imagine seeing the real thing that has been traveling from Earth to the space and according to KSC's fun facts, the Space Shuttle Atlantis has traveled in space for 125,935,769 miles in total. That's amazing! Seeing it up close, I can see the traces of beating that it endures ... scratches and all but, the historic Atlantis sure looks so great.

The sight is priceless especially right after the door opens. I could almost cry! Honestly, that's the feeling ... knowing that Space Shuttle Program has ended. As the guests moved to the long winding hallway, everyone goes to a huge room to see a video , the history and it's first travel and the last. It was fascinating and I was watching attentively! When the video was over, boom ... door opens and this gigantic space vehicle was right in front of me!

I love visiting the Kennedy Space Center. This is the only place that I truly missed when we moved to the Gulf coast.

Anyway, have you been to Orlando lately? Have you visited Disney World? If you have the time, check out the Space Coast and for an hour drive, you can reach Kennedy Space Center.

Though Atlantis is my new favorite attraction next to Apollo/Saturn V Center, there's a lot of attractions that I am sure you and your family will enjoy. You can relax in the IMAX Theatre and watch a full length Science-space related movies. You can try the Shuttle Launch Experience and if you love an adrenalin rush ride, this attraction might be your thing. If you love walking, you may explore the Exploration Space: Explorers Wanted. This place is truly educational. I can stay here for long hours. And yes, the Rocket Garden , you should not missed too.

Back to Atlantis Attraction, this is really a great place to unwind and read Science related facts about space, the astronauts, the Atlantis and so much more. Even the "How Astronauts Go" has an exhibit too. Well, have you ever asked that question too?

The Space Shuttle Atlantis is a vehicle and it launched like a rocket and flew in orbit like a spacecraft and when it landed on the runway, it's like a glider. That's a fact provided by #KSC. This lovely vehicle is now on display at KSC in Florida.

The picture above is located at the entrance of Atlantis attraction. An upright and full-scale replica with external tank (in orange), with solid rocket boosters, (2 of them) and stands 184 ft . Pretty awesome right?

Here we are inside the Atlantis attraction. There are over 60 interactive exhibits inside Atlantis building so; if come here ... you can stay here whole day and you will never get bored.

This area is heading to the exit and the souvenir shop in Atlantis.

Before heading to other attractions, I took a one last look and take some pictures too. The husband is taking a picture from a mezzanine area on the right where the games and other exhibits were located.
So, when are you planning to visit the Kennedy Space Center in Florida?
