to Florida Historical Walking Tours
Put on your walking shoes and experience the heart of Floridas history, people, and architecture. The streets and avenues of Floridas many historic districts were built and traveled by Floridas early residents, and their stories come alive as you take a healthful, entertaining stroll through their neighborhoods.
Youll wander through the streets of St. Augustine, lined with centuries-old coquina buildings that were the homes of Spanish and British colonists. On Miami Beach youll see an art deco lifeguard station, in Coral Gables a water tower shaped like a lighthouse. You can also amble by the pastel cottages of Seaside, historic not because of age but because of its character and architecture. The close-knit, walk-to-everything community is a replica of the other old-fashioned towns this book celebrates.
Thirty-two self-guided ventures are outlined here, with concise and interesting histories along the way. Additional information allows you to locate extended tours in each city and explore them at your leisure. To make your tour complete, historical dining and lodging listings are also provided.
