I went to Florida in June 2007 in order to go to a convention in Orlando. Since I am an avid birdwatcher, and Florida has some of the best birdwatching in the United States, I decided to spend some time in Florida after the convention and make a short birdwatching vacation out of the trip. In order to see the greatest variety of species of birds, it is necessary to travel all over the Florida Peninsula. This gave me the opportunity not only to see Orlando, but also Tampa, Saint Petersburg, the Ocala National Forest, Miami, Everglades National Park, the Florida Keys, and Key West. And unlike other trips to Florida I had made in the past prior to Virtual Tourist, I took time out from birdwatching to visit and photograph some of the sights and attractions along the way, just for this page.

    An excellent tour of Florida, revealing many interesting details on this very popular tourist state!! I've been there several times (business & family on March break) but was never able to slow down to enjoy it like you did!

    Outstanding pages, Dave. You covered Miami, Orlando, Tampa, and Key West very well. Like the emphasis on sports, arts, sciences, nature. Terrific narratives and brilliant photographs.

    Florida is one of the most attractive (for me) states in the USA. If I ever visit your beautiful country I'll try for certain to visit Florida. Thanks David for the virtual travel. Very good job!

    Hans and I have visited Florida many times. Our last visit in January, I found the state getting more and more crowded and less and less enjoyable. It seems all of America and Canadians included, want to live here.

    I visited Florida in 2005, I had a great time. I flew into Fort Lauderdale though, love those beaches.
