Went to Florida and drove from Miami to key west, back to Naples, Clearwater and Orlando with a few stops in between. Got a lot out of each day thanks to this guide. Only minor comment is the must see sunset from Mallory square in key west is behind a low island. The one at Clearwater was the most perfect one I have ever seen. If go to the Everglades go on the shark trail tram ride - never mind 100s of Gators, the bird life was amazing.

I have come to trust Lonely Planet so much, that where ever I go I just order the LP book without even looking. Has worked every time until now. The information LP has got me used to just wasn't there.

1) Hotels. Normally there are cheap, medium and expensive ones, and good selection of each. This time I found far better deals from the internet myself, perfectly nice and respectable places but far more affordable prices than the "cheap" ones in the book. I especially don't understand why they weren't any Red Roof Inns in this book, as they were excellent value for money and far cheaper than the cheap ones listed here.
2) Activities. Sparse. The book tells you a lot about what you can do, eg boat rides, snorkeling, alligators, but has very minimal details of companies who provide these tours and services.
3) Maps. Poor. Normally LP has a map of each place introduced. Bigger places has a page or two sized map, small ones maybe just two inches square, but it's always there. Not in this one. There are no maps, you are left trying to locate places by the description only.

The book is very thick considering how little information is in it. This is because it concentrates on lengthy descriptions of things and places, which you could easily live without.

Not the usual Lonely Planet standard. I would recommend not to waste your money. For me, value of Lonely Planet is the details in it, to save me from having to surf the internet myself while travelling. With this one I had to do it anyway, so there was no point. Waste of money.

This has to be the most disappointing purchase I have made via amazon. The title is very misleading as this book barely scratches the surface regarding travel around Florida. It is primarily focussed on the Orlando parks which whilst being quite detailed doesn't represent the title.

I own the 3rd edition of the paperback guide which is now over ten years old. This kindle version is essentially an updated excerpt from the Orlando chapters plus a bit about the history of Florida. There's no coverage of the gulf coast everglades, Miami or the Keys.

I will be complaining about the labelling g of this title in the kindle store.

It would appear a lot of information has been sacrificed as it is very lacking in information for Florida with the exception of Orlando. The Maps are impossible to see and even using the zoom on the Kindle does not help. If this is an example of travel guides for the Kindle I will not purchase another one. A waste of money.

This book arrive really quickly and was very helpful on my recent trip to Florida. Brand new. Good suggestions of itineraries based on how long you're going for

The book probbaly gives you a lot of information but it is too compact, not easy to read and not an easy one to bring on a journy
