This is the best Florida milkshake

Florida has plenty of spots to get your milkshake on, and unlike in other areas of the country, it’s always milkshake season in the Sunshine State. I mean, who doesn’t love a good Florida milkshake? One publication set out on the delicious journey to find the best one in the state. recently put together a study to determine the best place to get a milkshake in each state. “Milkshakes are about as American as apple pie, and every state has their own mouth-watering options,” they state in the article. I couldn’t agree more. “Read on for our pick of the best of them, from towering freak shakes heavy with toppings to deliciously understated chocolate and vanilla options.” What’s extra cool is that they also suggest what kind of milkshake to try at each of these establishments. I think mint is my favorite flavor for a milkshake, but chocolate-chip is a close second.

So, which ice cream shop in Florida has the best milkshakes in the entire state? According to the study, the best Florida Milkshake, it’s the flavor “Tres Leches Milkshake” at Bocas House in Doral. “Bocas House, on the outskirts of Miami, serves Latin American-inspired dishes from ceviche to steak, but it’s the head-turning milkshakes that really steal the show,” states. “Its photo-worthy creations are heavy on the toppings – think cookies, rainbow sprinkles, salted caramel, and more. The fan favorite is the Tres Leches Milkshake (pictured second from the left): vanilla ice-cream is blitzed and topped with marquesa cake, plus a wafer cone filled with yet more ice cream.” If you know of someone who loves milkshakes, this seems like the perfect spot. I would probably try the suggested “Tres Leches Milkshake” flavor, although all of their flavors looks unique. Find the full list of the best milkshakes in every state here.

You Won't Believe What The Average Wedding Costs In Florida

We all know that weddings can be very expensive, but you won’t believe what the average wedding costs in Florida.

So, you’re thinking about tying the knot, huh? Congratulations! But before you get too excited, there’s something you need to know – weddings are EXPENSIVE.

I’m not just talking about a few thousand dollars here and there, I’m talking about the kind of money that would make for a great down payment on a house, a brand new car or even a small island in the Caribbean. Okay, maybe not the last one, but you get the point. I’m always surprised when I hear just how much people spend on their weddings. But it IS your special day, so I understand wanting to go all out.

Thinking about the costs that come with a wedding, of course you need a venue. Then you need catering, flowers, decorations, a DJ and a photographer. Of course, after all that you want to take off on a honeymoon too right? It’s already getting expensive and that’s not even everything!

The Knot is a popular wedding website and just released their 2022 Real Wedding Study. In it, it determines the average cost of weddings in each state. Last year in Florida, the average wedding cost $30,000. And that $30,000 only includes the cost of the ceremony and the reception! Those that have traveled down to Florida may have paid more, as the average cost of a destination wedding in the US is $36,400.
