  • Some who visit Central Florida for the first time find nothing more than a man-made tropical paradise punctuated by strip malls and fast-food restaurants. But long before "The Mouse" made Orlando America's favorite family destination, Florida was the place where the sun both rises and sets on an endless shore, a place where margaritas inspire music, a place where nature offers her unspoiled best.

    Florida has its own distinct culture that inspires art, fashion, movies and TV shows. In Florida, inlets rush to meet the ocean and lighthouses stand guard over fishing boats and cruise ships. 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 alligators, shore birds, and the friendliest people you will ever meet.

    Florida's distinctive character inspired this website, PlacesAroundFlorida.com. I wanted to give you 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. And I'll keep adding more, so please come back often to see what's new. In the meantime, please Contact Us if you think there's someplace I should visit.
