A bit dissapointing compared to other Lonely Planet books. There were a few cases in the book where I found that important information was missing. For example, in the Key West Getting There and Around section it doesn't mention the ferry from Miami and Ft. Myers which is a huge ommission. 'It does mention it in the Ft. Myers section' There mistakes in the maps such as on p377 saying that the University of South Florida was only .1 miles away. I'm not a big fan of Lonely Planets maps to begin with. Finally, some parts could have been written better. Sometimes travel book writers try a little hard to be witty instead of using that energy to provide more detailed and useful information. I probably would have been better off buying 'Frommer's Florida from $70 a Day'
