This guide pulls together the divergent strands - the vibrant urban communities like Miami, the protected wilderness areas such as the Everglades, and the outstanding, contrasting tourist sites such as Walt Disney World and Key West - that make up contemporary Florida. The facts about sleeping, eating and drinking are full and candid, with 150 restaurants and bars listed for the city of Miami alone. The swamps, forests and waterways of Florida's natural regions are described, too, with advice and recommendations drawn from the author's experience of hiking, canoeing and snorkelling (and coming face to face with alligators in the creeks and barracudas in the sea). The money-saving tips and practical hints ensure that readers on any budget, from the most shoestring to the most comfortable, get the best from Florida's theme parks and attractions, while details of how to avoid sunburn while sun-bathing in the nude (and where you're best advised to do that) are just two of the keys the book gives to enjoying the state's beaches.show more
