    Default Ft Lauderdale Region Worthwhile Educational Visits

    There's a homeschooling mom visiting us in Ft Lauderdale and she's interested in local sites worth visiting. I started to pull this together and thought I should should also post it somewhere. So here it is even though it's slightly off topic and not really finished.

    Book Suggestion for People Visiting the Keys.
    My biggest suggestion since they are going to go down to the Florida Keys and are already pretty expert in birds is that they should read Last Train to Paradise. It's a book by Les Standiford about the amazing story of Henry Flagler (which was totally unknown by me) and his building of the railroad all the way down the coast of Florida and across the Keys to what was then (this is the early 1900s) the largest city in Florida: Key West. It's an amazing story. He created the cities of Miami and Palm Beach, a series of Florida land bubbles and busts, and some amazing hotels including the Breakers in Palm Beach and the Ponce de León Hotel in Miami.
