It all began in the ’80s. I was born and grew up in the land of dreams, sunshine, castles, beaches, space shuttles, and orange groves. It seems that Native Floridians, especially Native Orlando-ians, have to choose a side either to love it or to leave it. In addition, one must choose Team Tourism or Team “the way things used to be”. I have never known an Orlando without the tourist attractions. Therefore I am Team Tourism. In fact, I fell in love with tourism so much that I made it my profession.
Thisfloridalife exists to explore the magnificent world of living in Florida. Many people are passionate about traveling. I certainly fall into that category. However, I recently decided that rather than making it my mission to explore the world at large, I need to soak up and explore my own backyard. There is so much that Florida offers. Thisfloridalife showcases the many destinations that make Florida great. It exists for anyone who wants to explore Florida, either as a visitor, a resident, or a daydreamer.
One thing that you will find missing from thisfloridalife is hotels. I work in the tourism industry, specifically the hotel industry. Therefore, it would be inappropriate for me to write reviews and posts about specific hotels. Occasionally, the topic may come up, but I will do all I can to provide an unbiased opinion.
So sit back, relax, and soak up thisfloridalife!
