I've been to the Florida Theatre several times and always enjoy it. Acoustically it's a great place to see a concert. The building is historic and is cool to explore and admire. The staff is top notch and focused on the guest experience.

My bride and I have walked from the Omni in the past with no problems. We’re in our 60’s. That’s not saying you couldn’t run into street people.
