Florida hobby shops/ fields near anna maria island

hey guys,

My family and I are vacationing right now in beautiful Anna Maria island!
First time here for us snowbirds and its spectacular!!
Looking for a hobby shop, to kill some rainy days and maybe go check out a flying field... hopefully with some racers!! We found one called George's online but looked a little sketchy
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks in Advance

Cory

The AMA web site has a search engine for finding flying fields All you need is the zip code for the area you are in...I will be in Florida in June and have already found a couple of fields that I plan on visiting and flying at...I always maintain an AMA membership even though I am currently living in Canada...just for such occasions

The weather must be a whole lot better than here, raining & wet.

Cory We stay east of Ocala, at a little place called Salt Springs. To bad you where not closer to Orlando, you could have checked out Graves Hobbies.
