New Guide to Old Florida Attractions : From Mermaids to Singing Towers (Paperback) (Doug Alderson)
about this item
Mermaids still perform in the clear waters of Weeki Wachee Springs as they have for decades. The Bok Tower's carillon bells, installed in 1929, continue to echo across Iron Mountain near Lake Wales. Monstrous reptiles are ever abundant at Gatorland, Gatorama and the St. Augustine Alligator Farm Zoological Park. Dolphins continue to leap at Marineland. St. Petersburg's Sunken Gardens is fully restored to its former grandeur, complete with flamingos. You can still drive through a pride of lions at southeast Florida's Lion Country Safari. And nothing speaks of Old Florida like the giant concrete statues at Goofy Golf in Panama City Beach.
Many of Florida's classic attractions still exist—and even thrive—in the shadow of mega-theme parks and interstate highways. A New Guide to Old Florida Attractions takes you to these places and more on an unforgettable journey across the Sunshine State. Discover what Florida's golden age of tourism was, and still is, all aboutmagical, beautiful and fun!
