From basic history and residential requirements to obscure facts, this book is a complete compendium of Florida facts. The almanac works as a combination atlas, directory, tourist guide, reference manual, and history book all in one. The West Orange Times calls it "the best handbook and reference for history, tourism and even if your planning on moving to Florida". The book contains road maps of each county and charts of rivers and waterways. For those who are visiting the state, there are sections on major attractions, state parks, lodging, art museums, and major festivals, as well as regulations for boating, fishing, and hunting. For people considering moving to Florida, there is school information and descriptions of each county, as well as information on taxes, utilities, and the government. Anyone interested in the history and settlement of the state will find the state constitution, as well as facts ranging from Native American cultures to the government in 1875. There are also listings of national memorials, monuments, and landmarks. This new and improved edition contains everything found in the past annuals, plus updated information and a new hurricane survival guide.
Facts are easy to locate with a table of contents listing all of the topics covered in each section and a detailed index at the end of the manual.
