  • Insider advice on avoiding the crowds as you hit up the hottest spots in Miami, from the nightclubs of South Beach to the trendy restaurants in the Design District. There are also helpful tips on how to best see the state's natural beauty, from the sugar-sand beaches of the Gulf Coast to the swampy Everglades and from the chilled-out Florida Keys to incredible scuba diving on the Treasure Coast. Plus tips on where to find the best beaches, nature reserves, golf, boating, swimming, snorkeling, and diving spots in the state.

  • Insightful commentary on Florida's history and culture, from Ponce de Leon's discovery of historic St. Augustine to the birth of tourism in Tampa Bay during the Gilded Age and from space exploration in Cape Canaveral to Ernest Hemingway's residency on Key West.
  • Tips for family-friendly activities, from how best to approach Orlando's Walt Disney World and Universal Studios to exploring some of Miami's kid-friendly museums and zoos. Tips on where to swim with manatees, wrangle an alligator, learn about nature, and drive a racecar (in Daytona).
