FLORIDA BACKROADS TRAVEL takes you off the beaten path on day trips to the quieter roads that defined the state in earlier years. Millions of people visit Florida every year and never really see it. Things look pretty much the same from the interstate highways and toll roads. You see the same old billboards, gas stations, chain restaurants and tacky tourist trips.
There are eight geographic regions in Florida and the book is organized by region. The lengthy table of contents allows you to click on anything that interests you in any of the regions. The book covers beaches, state parks, and other places of interest. If a town has a good restaurant, the book will mention it along with some favorite lodging choices. Each regional section of the book has maps of recommended day trips with driving routes plainly marked.
FLORIDA BACKROADS TRAVEL will show you where the best beaches are. You will also learn about Florida State Parks. These parks are quiet treasures that will make your visit even more interesting. The book doesn’t spend much time on the major tourist attractions like SeaWorld although it gives you enough information to find your way around those places. The towns and country roads are the best attractions.
