Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Lucy makes my toes itch! I can’t wait to get out and explore all the destinations she describes."--Sandy Huff, author of Paddler’s Guide to the Sunshine State
 
"By using modern technologies like GPS coordinates and internet resources, 50 Great Walks in Florida brings the genre of tour guides clicking and screening into the twenty-first century."--Lars Andersen, author of Payne’s Prairie: A History and Guide
 

From the deepest swamps to the most civilized sidewalks, 50 Great Walks in Florida features the best short, but significant, outdoor jaunts in the Sunshine State. Experienced tour guide Lucy Tobias fills each page with fascinating local history and vivid descriptions of the sights and sites encountered along the way.

 
50 Great Walks in Florida is divided by geographic regions and each section includes at least one beach or wetlands walk, a historic walk, a garden walk, a place to see wildlife, and one locale with an unusual natural feature. Included are the Vietnam Memorial, Gulf Islands National Seashore, Coca-Cola Town, Ybor City Fresh Market, John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park, and even a ghost tour!
 
Tobias recommends additional activities for each walk and offers suggestions for where to stop nearby, including local restaurants, to enhance the regional and cultural experience. This handy guide includes comprehensive locator maps, listings of trip essentials, and useful warnings about possible dangers such as poisonwood sap.
 
These manageable walks will appeal to tourists in search of the real Florida, as well as to residents who want to become better acquainted with their state but still be done in time for lunch. Though shoes may be required, backpacks are not.
