Historic Landmarks

With a lengthy cultural history that maps pre-Columbian times, the Civil War and the Space-Age, Florida is a great place to learn about life in American days past.
Discover all things astronaut at the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station (conveniently located next to the Kennedy Space Center), or unwind at Bok Tower Gardens, an architectural garden and bird sanctuary. Literature enthusiasts can also visit the homes of such established writers as civil rights activist Mary McLeod Bethune, or novelist Ernest Hemingway. Whatever your interest, there is sure to be something ready to prove that Florida is about a lot more than just rollercoasters; there’s a rich heritage behind that shiny exterior.
