9780517201824: Florida: A Pictorial Souvenir

Florida, the Sunshine State, is the fourth largest state—in population—in the Union. It is the nearest thing to paradise that can be found on the mainland, with its year-round warm weather, resorts, tropical enclaves, pristine beaches, and manicured golf courses. But Florida is more than America's playgrounds of fun and theme parks. It is the shooting star of the sunbelt whose population and economy has boomed in the last several decades. It is a place of surprising diversity and variety, from the Southern charm of Tallahassee, the state capital, which bills itself as "Florida with a Southern Accent," to the Hispanic flavor of Miami, which calls itself the "Capital of Latin America," to the posh "Gold Coast" of Palm Beach County, the former playground of the Rockefellers and Astors.
Florida is a state that has something for everyone. If you have a literary bent you can go to Key West and drink at Sloppy Joe's bar, Ernest Hemingway's favorite hangout. Nature lovers can revel in the unique wonder of the Everglades, the slow-moving, fifty-mile-wide "River of Grass." Devotees of architecture can gaze in awe at the homes and hotels of Miami Beach, which has the largest concentration of Art Deco buildings in the world. And children of all ages from all over the world converge on Orlando, the home of Universal Studios Florida and Walt Disney World.
In Florida: A Pictorial Souvenir, photographer Carol M. Highsmith and writer Ted Landphair guide the reader on a wonderful excursion through the state's foremost locales and attractions. This book is a superb souvenir for anyone who has ever visited this great state or wishes to enjoy its Edenic scenic vistas.
