The crossroads of tacky

I once heard Copenhagen referred to as "the crossroads of cute." That's a city I know and love and I think its an apt description. Now I think Florida should be called "the crossroads of tacky." I've already posted some evidence up here as to why that is a good way to describe Florida, but you know I have more than just Santa walking his alligator to back up my proposed name change to the Sunshine state. Such a boring title. Florida's license plates should say "Florida -- right at the crossroads of tacky." Deliciously tacky:

Buildings that look like birthday cake:

The hotel from your 1950s vacation:


And, my personal favorite. The tacky double whammy:

Bowling and beach. I can now finish my entry.

Adios, tacky

Well, a few more shots I like that I can't put into one category, but they are still getting posted up here.

First, nice tattoos:

Second, check out the Barbie dream home:

Third, this quintessential Florida image:

And that closes out our little time in Florida. Where will we go next?
