“Follow these well-planned day trips, and you’ll not only glimpse a kinder, gentler Florida, you’ll learn more than a little about its history.”
Winner of the Horgan Award from the Florida Historical Society for a book of outstanding merit written primarily for the general reader.
In this first of a three-part series, Douglas Waitley offers an informative, laid-back tour through Florida’s heartland, capturing its scenic beauty and Southern grace. Instead of buzzing through congested highway traffic, why not cruise along a shaded country backroad, stopping periodically to enjoy the hospitality of a town you’ve never noticed on a map? Complete with directions, detailed maps, recommended stops, and photographs of interesting sights, this book offers more than just a glimpse into the past.
