Places Around Florida

PlacesAroundFlorida.com is your home for useful and unique Florida things to do and travel information. In Florida, inlets rush to meet the ocean and lighthouses stand guard over fishing boats and cruise ports. Once upon a time, Florida was a place where pirates roamed; today, treasure hunters still prowl its coastline. Florida is home to the nation's space program, the Everglades and rows upon rows of citrus trees. It's also home to wildlife like alligators, shore birds, and the friendliest people you will ever meet.

Florida has its own native culture that inspires art, fashion, movies and TV shows. Florida's distinct character inspired PlacesAroundFlorida.com. I wanted a website that was different -- one that showed Florida from a unique perspective. You won't see every place in Florida here, but the ones you see are worth a visit.
