Redland Riot Road Rallye: Eat Monkey Bread, Drink Milkshakes and Learn Stuff

Despite our close proximity to the Redlands, Homestead and the Everglades, how much do most Miamians really know about our agro-Arcadia? For most of us, trips south likely consist of a Starbucks stop en route to the Keys or a Sunday morning cinnamon roll excursion. But there's more than meets the eye in the Redlands region, and Miamians who participate in this Saturday's Redland Riot Road Rallye will find out exactly what.

Part road trip, part history lesson, the Rallye leads teams on a leisurely trip through some of the Homestead area's famous haunts, led by local tour guide extraordinaire Robert Burr. From Robert is Here to the Fruit & Spice Park, participants get to eat their way across the countryside, stroll in the footsteps of Florida's citrus pioneers, and answer cryptic questions along the way.
