For your Florida spring break, we're happy to share the best places to play with dolphins, or just where to relax with a Bloody Mary in hand. Check out our spring break crawls in Miami, Orlando, Key West and the Fort Myers area.
For additional insight for travelers to the Sunshine State, though, we defer to Carl Hiaasen. In 13 novels and more than 35 years as a journalist with the Miami Herald, Hiaasen has critiqued, chronicled and defended the sometimes strange and always intriguing culture of Florida.
Here are 13 things about Florida every traveler should know, as mined from some of his novels. Note: Some words below are not safe for work. Bold type has been added to the text for emphasis.

I know the reason I ended up in Margaritaville: I wanted to experience in person the boozy, real-world universe being spun out of what may be the world's most lucrative song.
Jimmy Buffett's "Margaritaville" peaked at No. 8 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1977. The song's chart success is arguably its lowest point. During the last 30-plus years, Buffett has birthed an empire from the 3 minute, 20 second ditty about being drunk and searching for a lost shaker of salt.
