Assuming you will drive I-4 to I-75 for your route, you could stop for lunch at Palmetto at the Riverhouse Reef &Grill, which is out in in the midst of a marina above the river.
Or go shopping at the Ellenton Premium Outlets, directly off the interstate.
Between the two from the same interstate exit is the Gamble Plantation State Historic site
Huge thanks for this. Massively appreciated.
Thanks ever so much for posting. I'll google them as suggested.
