Central Florida Backroads Travel: Day Trips Off The Beaten Path

Central Florida Backroads Travel: Day Trips Off The Beaten Path

Author: Mike Miller
Price: $8.99
Binding: Paperback
Description: CENTRAL FLORIDA BACKROADS TRAVEL takes you off the Interstate Highways and onto the quieter roads that defined this region in earlier years. Millions of people visit Central Florida every year and never really see it. Everything looks pretty much the same from Interstate 4, Interstate 75 or the Florida Turnpike. The same old billboards, gas stations, chain restaurants and tacky tourist traps call out to you as you speed along. This guide will rescue you from interstate monotony and take you off the beaten path to what is called Old Florida. This part of our fast growing state is still a place of serenity, natural wonders and historic places. The guide is organized into several different sections so you can browse what you?d like at your convenience. Several historic Central Florida towns are profiled including Babson Park, Cassadaga, Clermont, Doctor Phillips, Eustis, Fort Meade, Frostproof, Fruitland Park, Haines City, Highland Park, Howey In The Hills, Lakeland, Lake Placid, Lake Wales, Mount Dora, Ocala, Okeechobee, Orlando, Sebring, St Cloud, Tavares, The Villages, Wauchula, Windermere, Winter Garden, Winter Haven and Winter Park. The history of each town is discussed and photos are shown along with an antique postcard now and then. If a town has a good restaurant, the guide will mention it along with some favorite lodging choices. Although Central Florida is noted for its major Orlando theme parks, the area is also famous for its vast agricultural lands, its Ocala National Forest and older quieter tourist attractions. This guide will show you where the best ones are. You will also learn about several Florida State Parks. These parks are quiet treasures that will make your visit even more interesting. The guide does not focus on the major theme parks, but does give you brief introductions to Walt Disney World, Universal Studios and Seaworld. Florida heritage and history are important parts of the culture of Central Florida. The guide tells you about festivals, including art shows, and gives you times and places so you can enjoy them during your visit. You will also find a list of all Central East Florida heritage sites, and will learn about the interesting history of this part of Florida. Last but not least, CENTRAL FLORIDA BACKROADS TRAVEL has a section on Florida day trips. You will be given recommended driving routes along with maps to help you enjoy your wanderings around this interesting region of Florida. The guide is written by Mike Miller, a 50 plus year resident of Florida. Mike is a graduate civil engineer from the University of Florida and has traveled all over the state on both business and pleasure. He writes for and publishes his own website, Florida-Backroads-Travel.com. Much of the material from this guide is from the website.[more]
