About

Overview

DK Eyewitness Travel: Family Guide Florida makes a family vacation in Florida even more memorable by making it easy--from strategies on how to get the most of the Walt Disney World, Universal Orlando, and Legoland theme parks to finding the best beaches on the Panhandle, exploring the whizz-bang thrills of the Kennedy Space Center on Cape Carnaveral to taking in the Art Deco attractions of Miami. And, it brings these sights alive for children with fun facts, quizzes, and cartoons. The book brims with insider knowledge and ideas for activities that will engage children, from crocodile- and alligator-spotting in the Everglades to seeing manatees on the St. Johns River, and fishing in the Keys. The major sights are treated as "hub" destinations around which families can plan their itineraries, including nearby places of interest, dining and rest options, and opportunities for children to let off steam at a parks or playgrounds. All the practical information parents need appears alongside each sight, including transportation information, budget tips, age range suitability, and where to eat. Meanwhile, the most family-friendly, best-value accommodation options have been chosen with family budgets and needs in mind. Full-color throughout, this family travel guide includes detailed maps of the main sightseeing areas for easy navigation and all the practical information you need for a fun, stress-free family vacation in Florida.
