If you’re a current guest of Floridays’ we wish you a safe, joyful and happy Thanksgiving and Christmas season. If you are thinking of a place to spend the winter in our little piece of Paradise, there’s no better place to spend a good old-fashioned holiday season than south Florida.

We Love This Park!

My wife and I have been coming to Floridays for eight seasons. We love this Park. It is in the small town of Hobe Sound snuggled comfortably between Jupiter and Stuart on the east coast of south Florida.

Each RV site is quite large with a cement patio and driveway with 50/30 amp service. The Park has a beautiful brand new handicap-friendly bathhouse and laundry facilities. The manager George is very friendly and helpful. He also has a BYOB Tiki Bar at the back of his house/office and most afternoons Happy Hour is enjoyed there and on special event days there is usually a potluck-style dinner.

The world-famous Jupiter Island and its beach is just two miles away. There are excellent and safe trails and roads for running and biking enthusiasts. The local stores include grocery, banks, gas, hardware, many fine resturants and of course thrift stores. All the major shopping facilities are within twenty minutes. We would recommend Floridays RV Park to anyone that likes enjoyable camping without the hassle of big city life and traffic.

Hobe Sound—Shh! Don’t Tell Anyone!

Hobe Sound MapThose of us who work and live in Hobe Sound like things just the way they were yesterday. Somehow, this sleepy town has been able to restrain growth, keeping this small piece of Martin County nostalgic of Old Florida.

The folks at Discover Martin have recently released a new video with a focus on Hobe Sound.

Unique in so many ways, Hobe Sound sits in the most environmentally sensitive area of southeastern Martin County. Here you can discover an understated elegance. With its collection of antique shops, funky eateries, art galleries, and nature parks, Hobe Sound embodies the definition of small beach town charm.

It’s a long video—over 20 minutes—so pour a cool one, lean back, and take a chair side tour of the place Floridays calls home.
