Florida tourism has taken a hard hit this year from the oil spill and even though most of the beaches were unaffected, people were canceling their trips. VISIT FLORIDA has done a great job posting photo updates along the way but something bigger was needed. And boy, was that achieved!
Residents and visitors participated in an enormous beach walk on Nov 6, photographing nearly the entire 825 miles of Florida beaches. But it doesn’t stop there. The Great VISIT FLORIDA Beach Walk posted these photos on a google map (be still my heart) and is asking the public to vote for their favorite photo / beach. What at outstanding idea!
