Travel Florida is a new Tampa Bay Times guide for Florida residents who are eager to explore some of the Sunshine State's exciting destinations.

Each year, Florida welcomes more than 100 million out-of-state tourists looking to spend the day with Mickey and Minnie at Walt Disney World, ride the exciting roller coasters at Busch Gardens, immerse themselves in top-rated art museums all over the state, or simply kick back and relax on one of our world-famous beaches.

Florida residents, too, like to take advantage of our amenities. Some enjoy "stay-cations" right on their own home turf, while others — more than 20 million of us, according to some reports — pack overnight bags and set off on road trips to other parts. And why not? Each of Florida's regions has its own personality, one influenced by geography, history, immigration populations, economics and other factors. Best of all, most of them can be reached in just a few hours by car.

Travel Florida wants to help you navigate your adventures. So we've highlighted what's unique about each of Florida's regions — what locals and visitors enjoy doing there, what the vibe is like and what's new and hip.

    Food & Dining

    When Locale Market opened in Sundial St. Pete in Dec. 2014, it was the most-hyped, most-anticipated gourmet market/food hall/culinary playground Tampa Bay had ever seen. Since then, celebrity chef-owner Michael Mina has done what every entrepreneur does in the face of challenges: tinker.

  2. This fall, say hello maple and so long pumpkin spice

    Cooking

    Come on, admit it. You're so over the pumpkin-spice craze.

  3. Wine of the week: Clayhouse Adobe Red, Paso Robles 2012

    Bars & Spirits

    Right now it's difficult to even think about California wines without grieving for the tremendous damage done by fires to some of that state's wine-growing regions and the people who live there. Recovery will take a long time, and supporting the industry is one way to help.

  4. Look for Tampa Bay filmmaker Joe Davison on 'Stranger Things'

    Human Interest

    For a year, Joe Davison kept a secret he wanted to tell so badly he feared it would burst from his mouth like an alien baby from John Hurt's chest.

    Joe Davison, at home in his dining room in Seminole, decked out for Halloween with “Stranger Things” decor, will appear in Season 2 of “Stranger Things.”
