Subway in the Sky will take to the skies during the month of September, allowing guests to experience the heights Subway has reached since it began its transformation journey in 2021.

If you’re one who likes to Eat Fresh, Subway is taking sandwiches to new heights with a flying footlong in Florida.

You may be wondering how footlongs can fly, but they certainly can with the new Subway in the Sky. I definitely enjoy a good Subway sandwich or protein bowl. Thankfully, I have one right around the corner from me in Fort Myers, so they know me by name. And probably by order too. Call me predictable. The Subway in the Sky is a blimp that looks like a giant sandwich. Particularly, The Beast, only this one is almost 180 feet long. If you’re in Orlando or Miami, or up for the trip, you can experience it for yourself.

The Subway in the Sky will be stopping in cities across the U.S.

The Subway in the Sky can hold six passengers per trip and will be stopping in different cities across the country. Here in Florida, the blimp will make stops in Orlando September 19 & 20 and Miami September 24 & 26. According to a press release, up to 40 fans of Subway will get to enjoy a sandwich “flight” of all four of the Deli Hero subs as they float 1,000 feet up in the air.

In other Subway news, the restaurant is giving fans a chance to go to Super Bowl LVIII in Las Vegas with a Subway in the Sky online game. Just visit or scan a QR code in your local Subway restaurant. You can take a spin each day on the blimp-themed slot machine that enters you in a sweepstakes for a chance to win a Super Bowl trip and unlocks discounts on Deli Hero subs.


2 Florida Restaurants Made Southern Living Magazine's List Of Best In The South

When it comes to good eatin’, it’s not hard in the south to find something great and 2 Florida restaurants have made Southern Living Magazine’s list of Best New Restaurants in the South for 2023.

We’re so lucky here in Fort Myers, Naples and Cape Coral that there are so many great restaurants. It seems, especially after the hurricane, that there are new restaurants popping up constantly. Whether it’s restaurants that were on the islands that relocated or closures with new spots replacing them. You could probably go to a new restaurant that’s opened every week at this point. I love all the options. And that’s just here in Southwest Florida. Around the state the list of new restaurants is endless.

While Florida is a big state, there’s more to the south than just the Sunshine State. Picture eating po boy’s in New Orleans, hot chicken in Nashville, biscuits and gravy in Mississippi or some Georgia peach pie..mmm now I’m hungry.

Southern Living Magazine put together a list of the best new restaurants in the south and 2 Florida restaurants made the top 5.

When you think of what makes a good restaurant, of course the food better be good. But it goes beyond that. It could just be that it has a great atmosphere or amazing waterfront views. Maybe the service is impeccable. We all have our favorites and if you’re like me you’re always on the hunt for new spots to enjoy. The two restaurants in Florida that made Southern Living Magazine’s list are two places I have yet to try, so I’m excited. Zitz Sum in Coral Gables came in at #4 and Willa’s in Tampa came in at #5. The others on the list would be great to remember if you’re traveling. For the full list, click here. Below are the Top 5.
