FL Tankful – Titusville

Sunday, sunday, what to do on a Sunday? Let’s drive east to the Atlantic side of Florida. We ultimately decided to head towards Titusville, Florida. Many years ago we drove here practically every weekend to kayak fish………………..but once we got our boat the kayaks sat unused in the garage. With our destination locked in, I dug a little deeper into the history of this special part of Florida.

A post office was created in 1858 in this area and the town was called Sand Point. Henry T. Titus arrived in 1867 intending to build a town on land owned by his wife, a daughter of a prominent planter.

Local history says…………………….Titus challenged Captain Clark Rice to a game of dominoes to decide the town’s name. Titus won. The town was incorporated in 1887. I found this nearby mural of Titus.

Our first stop was dictated by lunch plans. Internet search made the decision Pier 220 Seafood &Grill.

Who can argue with a view like this………………LOVE it!

You had your choice of indoor and outdoor seating. Hmmmmmmm, what to do, what choice do we make? Outside of course! Great place to motor up in your boat and tie up while eating.

We started with a few drinks while waiting for our food. Coke for me and lagers for Adrienne and Eric. Can’t forget the water to keep hydrated.

Smoked fish dip was our appetizer of choice. The ‘chips’ were a little different. Probably not the best fish dip we had ever ordered. Eric also ordered a cup of chowder.

Meals were good. Fish tacos for me with Eric ordering fried shrimp.

A walk to the end of the pier helped our food settle.

Found this guy sitting on the railing. Not too many people nearby to bother him (her?).

PIer 220 is a GREAT location with good food.

Now, how to spend the rest of our afternoon?????? Stop at a nearby craft brewery in historic downtown Titusville. Yep, used to be a hardware.

Playlinda Brewing Company

You can still see remnants of its former life as a hardware.

Our drink selections were very colorful. Left to right: Scrub Jay Lemon Wheat (mine), Playa Porter (Eric) and Blueberry Lemonade beer (Adrienne).

Ginny’s –

A shot of their beer selection.

They had a small menu and a smoked salmon fish dip was a starter of choice. Definitely a step (or two) up from the day’s first fish dip,

Something different caught my eye……….

Nice presentation but the sweet pretzel at Ten 10 Brewing Company in Orlando is waaaaaaaay better – just saying. It wasn’t so bad that we didn’t eat it. 🙂

Last selections before heading home: Robonaut Red Ale on left, Nitro St. Katie’s Irish red at right.

I enjoyed my selection enough to bring some home for future enjoyment.

We all agreed, heading east to the Atlantic coast was a nice change while still enjoying the water – one of Florida’s greatest attractions.
