Berry Town Center is our local shopping center and serves the local community at Tuscan Hills. Berry town is a half mile South on the US Highway 27 and there is also a walkway from the resort to the center if you prefer not to take the car or you don’t want to be designated driver.
Principal attraction is Publix, which all locals are familiar with. You can buy all your fresh foodstuffs from the delicatessen, as well as buying tickets to the Florida Lottery. The staff are always extremely helpful especially to tourists. The cakes are something else, with everything you can imagine from doughnuts to elaborate birthday cakes. Every type of salad, fruits and vegetables you could wish for. There is even a pharmacy and blood pressure monitor.
There are two banks, Regions ( now also joined with AmSouth) and the Suntrust. There is a UPS store which is very convenient for posting letters and parcels.
There is several small restaurants and take aways, Bistro Bistro, a Pizza place that you can dine in or take out, or our favourite, a Chinese called the Bamboo wok which we think offers excellent food and very good value. The portions are generous and the noodles are excellent. British guests are looked after too at Berry, as there is a British bar and fish and chip shop.
A great family diner is Applebee’s a real favourite with the locals as well as the holiday makers and always very busy, a little better eating than many of the usual diners, and they have Samuel Adams on draft, an excellent treat! There is a wine shop that stocks everything you might need from the beer to drink by the pool or the nightcap.
