Preview: Nature’s Own Attraction: A History of Florida’s Roadside Springs

Below is an exclusive peak inside Nature’s Own Attraction: A History of Florida’s Roadside Springs!

The decades after World War II were a golden age for roadside attractions in the Sunshine State. The advent of the family automobile put Florida’s exotic flora and fauna within easy reach for millions of curious Americans. Entrepreneurs were happy to meet that demand, setting up for-profit nature parks around four of Florida’s most splendid natural springs—at Silver Springs, Homosassa, Rainbow Springs, and Weeki Wachee.

Lovingly documented across more than 135 full-color photographs, Nature’s Own Attraction: A History of Florida’s Roadside Springs presents a living history of Florida’s bygone roadside era—a special kind of man-made Florida wildness vying for attention alongside the native, natural Florida wilderness that we all know and love.
