This place is classic roadside Florida at it's purest form, from the awesome giant gatorhead entrance, to the fun crap you can buy in the giftshop. If you've never seen gators in person, absolutely worth a stop... and you can feed them!

Since Florida is so flat, this is one of the best places in the state to take some really awesome photos. Great views, and for a couple bucks, you can see for miles. Really cool.

An incredible hands-on learning center that is just as much fun for adults as it is for kids. If you were planning on hitting the theme parks in Orlando but were rained out, this is the place to go!

One of the nicest iconic beaches in America. Sure, you can't do much driving or have bonfires anymore, but the beach is so clean that its worth the trade off. Great family vacation stop, for sure!

Beautiful park that's not only got nice trails, gorgeous scenery, and clearly good caretakers - it's free! Great place for a picnic.

Hilarious small town museum! I mean seriously... it's a Jell-O museum. Definitely worth a visit and worth it just for the photo ops alone.

Fun cavern to check out, but lately has turned into a pretty serious tourist trap. If you've never been here, it's really cool and worth seeing. Definitely a remnant from the heydays of roadside attractions.

Cool place, but it's way more fun for kids than it is for adults who can realize how cheap garnet gemstones actually are.

Awesome waterpark with great slides and a small crowd. If you're looking to cool off on a summer day, you can't go wrong here. It's nice and relaxed, even on the weekends!

Cool to see what an 18th century fort looked like up close! They've done a good job of keeping this place looking great, and there's lots of displays that give some good insight on to how the fort operated. Definitely a good stop for history buffs.
