My Chicago born and bred father always dreamed of living in Florida. Prior to our Sunshine State relocation, there is 8 mm proof of summer vacation trips to the most iconic (and random) of attractions, including Six Gun Territory, Cypress Gardens, Weeki Wachee Springs and Tiki Gardens.
We became official Floridians years before “The Mouse” made his debut. So, imagine my delight when genius author Ken Breslauer gathered these nostalgic landmarks all into one book — “Florida Roadside Attractions History – The Complete Guide to Florida Attractions Before Disney.”
A must read that I can’t wait to send to dear old dad.
