Natural Florida—the Florida beyond Disney World and Miami Beach—is where to hike, bike, camp, canoe, fish, snorkel, scuba dive, sail, bird watch, or just laze on the beach. Florida State Parks covers the entire Florida State Park System and will help you plan an adventure you’ll never forget. Whether you’re seeking underwater coral reef gardens, sunlit prairies, Florida’s renowned beaches, or languid pools where both people and manatees swim, you’ll find them within the pages of Florida State Parks: A Complete Recreation Guide.
Florida’s park system, with its 150-plus parks, has been rated top state park system in the nation several times by national parks and recreation organizations—a rare achievement. Florida State Parks gives directions to each park, includes maps, highlights the best features and trails of each park, and tells its natural and cultural history. From bald eagles and painted buntings to bears and alligators, you’ll discover where they live in Florida State Parks.
“As soon as I opened this book, I could see it was a keeper. I read it with equal parts outdoor enthusiasm and professional envy. With Florida State Parks at hand, readers will never be at a loss for interesting places to visit.”
