    Florida Tourist Attractions

    For those who may be looking for something a bit different than the usual theme park experience.


    Not limited to Florida, the site encompasses other states, as well.

    I found quite a few places to be pretty interesting! Weird...but interesting.

    I would love to have time to visit other things in the Orlando area but even after as many trips to WDW that we have taken, we still find it hard to leave & do other things. I guess it says a lot about the place that we're still that entertained there, lol.

    If anyone is interested in cars there was a museum in Naples, Collier Automotive Museum. I don't know if it's still there, I *am* going back a very long time now! :tongue:

    At the time they had an excellent collection of cars

    I noticed too, when browsing that there is a Big Daddy Don Garlitz Museum!

    Don was a racer of "rail" cars back in the day... drag racing, with a particular type of car.

    It's amazing all the little nooks and crannies of neat things to do...

    Did anyone see the (I think Lake Wales?) Florida place where the cars roll UP hill?
