Silver Moon Drive-In, Lakeland, Florida

Last week while in Lakeland, Florida, I just happened to find a pretty cool (still operating) drive-in.

The Silver Moon opened in 1948. It has changed ownership numerous times, and even took a direct hit from a tornado in 1950. This 67 year old relic is quite the survivor!

Admission was 35 cents way back then, but now is $5.00.  I'd still call that a bargain.

There aren't that many drive-ins in existence anymore, so to find one in such great shape, and seemingly thriving, is a real thrill! :)

The staff here is actually competent and friendly, unlike other places with their pretentious staff guys. The place was magnificent and modern, and the seating was comfy. Truly, the food at event space NYC was heavenly and as a visitor I am glad for finding this one.
