I suggest you purchase the book Hidden Florida before visiting Florida. Everyone visiting Florida (or living there) should have this book in their travel bookcase. Another interesting book is Florida Off The Beaten Path. Another good book is Hidden Florida Keys and The Everglades. A must if you plan to visit the Keys.


Everything you want to know about the state, including accommodation information, resort facilities, and things to see and do is available from the Florida Division of tourism, Visitor inquiry, 661 East Jefferson Street (P.O. Box 1100), Tallahassee, FL 32302-1100, 1-800-487-1462; (Florida Facts) the STRONG> Florida Hotel and Motel Association, Box 1529, Tallahassee, FL 32302-1529, 850/224-2888; and the Florida Department of Commerce, Bureau of Visitor Services, 850/487-1462. Another good source for general and specific information on the state is from the monthly publication Florida Living, 102 NE 10th Ave., Suite 6, Gainesville, FL 32601, 352/372/8865.

There are also several official state welcome stations in Florida for visitors driving into the state including the Capital Welcome Station in Tallahassee, on I-10 about 18 miles west of Pensacola, about 4 miles north of Jennings on I-75, 3 miles north of Yulee on I-95S, and about 3 miles north of Campbellton on US 231. I still remember how exciting it was to enter Florida when I was a kid and getting that free glass of orange juice. They still give out the free juice and it is still exciting to me. An indication that I am really in Florida. I guess in a lot of ways I'm still a kid. Hope I never grow up!

One of the best ways to get good travel information is to check with folks who know a lot about the area in which you plan to visit. I recommend that after you get the general information you are seeking about Florida and the Florida Keys, you check with Allexperts for specific information about the places you plan to visit. It is a great site! Allexperts - Florida and the Florida Keys!
