Where to Order Florida Travel Guides

    By Lauren Tjaden

    By all accounts, the Internet is a marvelous thing.

    With it, you can look up events in Naples, Pensacola Beach, or countless other destinations, for the dates that you’ll be in town. You can book a hotel in those same cities, with the benefit of reviews from people who’ve stayed there. Google Maps will let you virtually stand on the shores of Florida beaches, and you can rotate the view, almost as if your bare toes were planted in the sand.

    And yet.

    There’s something about a print guide that the Internet’s vast flow of information can’t match.

    Some folks are simply old-school, more comfortable with flicking through pages than clicking a mouse. But it runs deeper than that. Brochures invite you to curl up on the couch with them, tempting you with white-sand beaches, frolicking dolphins, and exotic pools. They beg to be passed around the coffee table, shared with friends and family, and to be savored at leisure. And you can unfold a map as you drive, exploring and choosing the routes that strike your fancy, instead of following a line on your phone.

    Read on to discover where you can order print brochures, wherever you’re dreaming of going in the Sunshine State.
