Talking Top Florida Destinations with a Family Vacation Guru

This week, our special guest Jill Martin, a VISIT FLORIDA Family Insider, definitely had some terrific insight about which Sunshine State attractions are the best around from her family travels.

History Lady and Radio Man got to pick Jill's brain during Friday's Talkin' Tourism on the Treasure Coast, and the blogging-savvy mom of two boys didn't disappoint.

Great minds must think alike though. After discussing the "Top 10 Florida Destinations” listed by Florida Travel, Gary and Jill drafted up their own top 10s, and they looked more than a little familiar. Their lists weren't mirror images though. Have a listen to the show to find out where they were different. But - no real spoiler alert here - that fuzzy-eared mouse in Orlando stills reigns supreme in his Magic Kingdom.

Jill also gave a run-down on how VISIT FLORIDA, the state's official tourism promoter, helps keep bringing in vacationers worldwide. Jill, kudos on being such a great guest!

Talkin' Tourism also brought its listeners up to speed on some sportfishing competition hitting the area soon. Keep an eye out for tournaments at Abaco Beach Resort at Boat Harbour and Treasure Cay.

An article praising seasonal residents by Scripps Treasure Coast Newspapers Columnist Russ Lemmon was another topic the show talked up this week. Take a look at what Russ wrote and how the show responded to what Russ has seen the valued "snowbird" community contribute through volunteering.

As always, thanks for listening and checking out the blog, and make sure you become a Talkin' Tourism fan on our Facebook Page!
