Florida Guide Book Reviews
There are many guide books that are written about Florida and also about getting around Florida by road or by rail.
Some cover the whole State and others concentrate on specific regions such as Orlando, South Florida including Miami and the Keys or about the theme parks such as the Walt Disney World Resort, Universal Orlando® Resort or SeaWorld.
On this page you will find reviews of books about the whole of Florida or about travelling around.
Florida; see the sidebar for other categories such as Cruising, Walt Disney World and the other parks.
It makes sense to choose a book based upon what you plan to do in Florida.
Note that most guide books are re-published annually so you can often pick up a bargain if you don't mind last year's edition. You won't get the very latest information but you could save yourself quite a bit of money.
Also look out for special deals on most Internet book sites where you can often buy two related books at a special discounted price.
