PRESS RELEASE: Secretary of State Launches Florida Family Summer Website Which Encourages Summer Travelers to Visit Informational, Historical and Cultural Sites throughout Florida
TALLAHASSEE, FLA. –
Florida Secretary of State Cord Byrd announces the launch of the Florida Family Summer Website which encourages Floridians and travelers to relive the nostalgic memories of summer road trips by exploring Florida and discover informational, historical and cultural locations throughout the state that are family-friendly and affordable (or free)!
“A summer road trip is a great time to make memories! And what better way to make memories than by exploring the Sunshine State,” said Florida Secretary of State Cord Byrd. “Many of us have nostalgic memories of summer road trips with our families where we visited museums, parks, or other cultural and historical sites. I encourage you and your family to relive those nostalgic memories on a family summer road trip through Florida.”
The Florida Family Summer website, DOS.MyFlorida.com/FamilySummer, includes an interactive map of Florida indicating the locations of Florida’s libraries, Main Street Communities, Arts and Culture facilities and even locations where you can see some of the Department of State’s archaeological collections on loan.
Travelers can make their way through Florida, a local region, or their very own neighborhood, and visit sites that help to tell Florida's story or share Florida's unique history and culture! From libraries to museums to Main Street Communities, Florida has many family-friendly options.
