We know many of you are limiting travel during these uncertain times. Although we continue to feature trips and places to visit, we are not encouraging you to visit them until it is safe. We want to support Florida's attractions and businesses during this situation, and hope you will plan to visit them when things get better. In the meantime, enjoy them virtually from the comfort of your home.
I am one of thousands of Floridians who were either born in the state or have lived here for most of our lives. The rapid population growth and unchecked development of the past half century have left us bewildered and saddened for the Florida we feel we have lost.
ENJOY FLORIDA FROM YOUR AUTOMOBILE OR YOUR ARMCHAIR
We remember the way it was and wish it were still the same. We know that can never be, so I created this website to help you find the places that still have that “Old Florida” feeling.
ENJOY FLORIDA FROM THE COMFORT OF YOUR HOME
You may be surprised that some of these "Old Florida" places are in large urban areas and cities. You just have to know how to get off the beaten path and enjoy the quiet places that exist almost everywhere.
I hope our new residents and tourists will also enjoy learning about the state. You can learn from the comfort of your home or from your favorite road vehicle.
