A readable and informative guide

Reviewed on September 04, 2018
Paperback | Verified

This 488-page book - the August 2018 11th (printed) edition - is an interesting and readable (the two are not always found together) guide to the American holiday state of Florida.

Unlike many guides, this is not a glossy booklet dotted with colourful photographs to make it look superficially attractive, but a (literally) rough guide in terms of comparative paper finishes, but well-designed and presented, with readable text, useful maps, and (well-chosen) photographs only where space allows. The excellent design and layout means that you don’t need unnecessary spot illustrations to break up column after column of small-printed data.

The Contents are
P004: Introduction (Where to go, when to go, what to see, itineraries, etc.)
P018: Basics (travel, transport, accommodation, food & drink, and other important stuff needed for planning a visit)

The Guide:
P045: Miami
P107: The Florida Keys
P151: The Everglades
P169: The southeast
P215: Sarasota and the southwest
P255: Orlando & Disney World
P303: The northeast
P347: Tampa Bay and the northwest
P395: The Panhandle

P438: Contexts (articles on history, nature, etc.)
P468: Index
