You'll find a bargain-hunter's shopping guide, affordable fun after dark, and complete sightseeing coverage, including the best things to do for free (or almost).

Our expert authors have already gone everywhere you might go--they've done the legwork for you, and they're not afraid to tell it like it is, saving you time and money.

Frommer's knows that affordable travel doesn't have to mean making sacrifices. It's about having fun and getting a great deal!

A vacation in the Sunshine State doesn't have to cost you an arm and a leg when you travel with Frommer's Florida from $60 a Day. Our authors have uncovered hundreds of wonderful mom-and-pop motels, charming B&Bs, great-value condo rentals, cute cottages, and more.
