* Full-colour throughout * Free full-colour, foldout map * Completely updated every year * Insider advice on avoiding the crowds as you explore Floridas many theme parks, beaches and other popular resorts and attractions (and where to go to get away from it all). * Where to find the the right bite for your appetite: from fresh-off-the-boat seafood in the Keys to Miamis glitziest nightspots. From country cooking to Cuban cuisine and where to eat in and around the theme parks. * Insightful commentary on Floridas land, its history and its people, from The Fountain of Youth, to Osceola, to boom times and the Space Race, and the arrival of the Mouse in Orlando. * Opinionated reviews. No bland descriptions and lukewarm recommendations. Our expert writer has her hand on the pulse of whats happening every day (and night), and tells it like it is in an engaging and helpful way. * Exact prices listed for every establishment and activity--no other guides offer such detailed, candid reviews of hotels and restaurants. We include the very best, but also emphasize moderately priced choices for real people.
