Mary Burr at Burr's Berry Farm welcomes adventurers in search of tropical goodies enjoying Robert Burr's annual Redland Riot Road Rallye through Miami's countryside.

A fruity tropical history though Miami's bountiful countryside is a great way to enjoy a weekend drive while discovering some delicious goodies along the way.

The third Saturday of January is time for the annual Redland Riot Road Rallye, a fruity tropical history tour -- and scavenger hunt of sorts -- through Miami's bountiful countryside.

Everyone's invited to join this mad-capped adventure for treasure.

Participants gather at Cauley Square on US1 at SW 224 Street -- the first of ten stops on the tour -- between 10 and 11am Saturday morning, January 18, 2014.

Each road rallye team registers for $10 per car to receive their map and driving directions, as well as a series of quirky questions to be answered along the way. The team with the most correct answers at the end of the day is the winner.

First, enjoy brunch at Cauley Square, visit the antique shops or just relax in the shady open plazas of this lush, historic village of arts and crafts shops.

After finding clues in the vicinity, adventurers take off for the next destination: Burr's Berry Farm on Hainlin Mill Drive, where they'll find strawberries, ice cream, milk shakes and lots of other goodies from this pioneer family-owned farm and fruit stand.

Subsequent stops include Phil's Berry Farm, Knaus Berry Farm, the Fruit And Spice Park, R.F. Orchids, the Hotel Redland, the Florida Pioneer Museum and Robert Is Here fruit stand. The final destination -- and declaration of the winners -- takes place at Schnebly Redland's Winery.

Along the way, participants will discover answers to the questions while collecting exotic delicacies, tropical fruits and vegetables, fresh baked goods, orchids, wines, fruity milkshakes, jellies, jams, preserves, and much more.

At 5pm, teams gather at the winery to turn in their answers.

The Redland Riot Road Rallye is open to all who wish to participate. Families, civic clubs, car clubs, foodies and adventurers are welcome.

Your host is Robert Adams Burr, a local historian and tour guide who enjoys sharing his knowledge of these special places. Robert's web site was designed to help locals and tourists take their own self-guided tour of the Redland Region anytime.

The Redland Riot Road Rallye website has more information about the event, with a bit of local history and folk tales about these delightful and charming stops along the way.
