In Florida, there are so many communities to explore that have fascinating historical and cultural backgrounds. The Florida Humanities Council has developed a free walking app providing 20 walking tours of cities throughout the Sunshine State including Tampa’s Ybor City, Tarpon Springs and Key West. It's like having your own private tour guide!
You’ll discover how various forces shaped the communities – the citrus industry, sponges, seafood, history, cigars, railroads, speculation and even tourism. It's a great way to exercise the body and educate the mind.
Everyday should be Earth Day! However, at least there is a designated day, week, and month that focuses on celebrating, bringing awareness to issues and protecting Planet Earth. We've selected a few of the many family-friendly Earth Day events happening all over the Sunshine State and encourage everyone to be the change!
