Driving is an ideal way to experience the varied scenery and attractions of Florida, and Frommer's Florida's Best-Loved Driving Tours is the only guide you'll need to take along. Author Paul Murphy has put together a spectacular collection of 1-to-5 day driving tours that hit the highlights of Florida.

In the Southeast section, Tour 2 gives you an insider's view of Miami beach with a tour through the pastel buildings of the Art Deco district and a stop at the famous Joe's Stone Crab Restaurant, where the meal that has passed into Florida folklore is stone crabs with mustard sauce, garlic spinach and hash browns. Tour 6 is an in-depth look at Florida's Coral Keys. This tour includes a visit to the John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park Murphy's favorite underwater destination in all of Florida, where you can explore the wrecks and the reef by snorkeling, diving or cruising on a glass-bottomed boat. Tour 6 also includes a stop on Islamorada, which boasts a performing dolphin show as well as the title "Sport Fishing Capital of theWorld".

If you're searching for water and sunshine, the four tours of the Central Gulf Coast are sure to satisfy, with numerous beach stops, a drive along the suspended Sunshine Skyway in the Pinellas and a visit to the warm mineral springs outside of Sarasota. Farther up in Central Florida, Murphy has designed driving tours that hit all the top attractions, both commercial and natural, in the area. All tours are packed with insider tips from the best rides at the Wet N' Wild water park to the dates of the November Light-Up Orlando festival.

You'll enjoy all the top sights and then have the flexibility to enjoy the hidden pleasures of each destination. Our suggested routes include scenic detours and stops for spectacular views, easy walks, shopping, dining, and fun breaks for travelers with children. With dozens of driving tour options, detailed and color-coded maps, and exact, directions, distances and driving times, Frommer's Florida's Best-Loved Driving Tours is the only guide you'll need to see the best of Florida by car.
