Florida: the weirdest state of the union.
Forget Disney World or Universal Studios. Florida holds plenty of offbeat and lesser-known treasures: the world’s largest private aircraft collection, the museum of Tupperware, and the candy store started by the man that invented the Jelly Belly. That’s just warming-up – while you’re here, hang out at Hong Kong Willie’s Junk Art Gallery, discover a Florida castle built with aluminum printing plates, or get to know the ladies at the world’s first Hooters.
Ask yourself: do you really want to go to the same touristy places as everyone else? Or would you rather return home with some unique stories to tell and some awesome pictures to brag about?
One Weird Globe guides are your step-by-step key to enjoying the offbeat side of a city or area. Get off the beaten path and head to some awesome places most tourists have never heard of.
However long you have to enjoy Florida, there are plenty of awesome places to make your friends jealous.
