Top places to visit in Florida
Discovery Island near Orlando was closed by Disney in 1999 and has since become an overgrown ruin. Although the island is off-limits, a number of intrepid urban explorers have managed to get some gorgeous snaps of what’s left. The original “Treasure Island” attraction was set up as a showcase for exotic fauna like scarlet ibis, flamingoes, lemurs and giant tortoises.
Mysterious circle in downtown Miami
When you visit Florida, try to include a trip to The Miami Circle – a perfect circle of 24 mysterious holes that dates back to prehistoric times. The circle was discovered in 1998 during a routine archaeological survey of the site by a property developer. An excavation turned up a number of artifacts, including human teeth, ancient tools and pieces of burnt wood. According to radiocarbon dating, these objects are believed to be 1,800-2,000 years old.
Don’t touch the Haunted Pillar!
Anyone who dares touch the Haunted Pillar will die – at least that’s the superstition. The infamous 10-foot-tall pillar stands in an unremarkable corner on Augusta’s historic Broad Street and is all that remains of a farmer’s market that stood on the corner in the 1800s. Local legend has it that a street preacher cursed the building after being banned from spreading his message in front of the market. When it was destroyed by a freak winter tornado, all that was left was a single column. There have been several attempts to remove the pillar, but it’s said that a death occurred soon after each one.
Respects to Leslie Nielsen
A visit to comedy legend Leslie Nielsen's grave in Evergreen Cemetery, Fort Lauderdale, is not a solemn affair as you’d expect. The gravestone inscription reads “Let ’er Rip”, a play on the actor’s often scatological comedy. The bench near the gravesite is marked with Nielsen’s most common advice to actors and comedians: “Sit down whenever you can.”
Getting surreal in St. Petersburg
Florida’s Salvador Dalí Museum, in honor of the Spanish artist, is the second largest collection in the world devoted to the famous surrealist. Located alongside the St. Petersburg waterfront, you’ll be able to get your fill of waxed mustaches, melting clocks and spindle-legged horses. On display are seven of Dali’s works, including The Hallucinogenic Toreador and The Discovery of America by Christopher Columbus. There is also a collection of the artist’s paintings, drawings, sculptures, films and photographs. Look out for visiting exhibitions – past collections have included Andy Warhol, M.C. Escher and Pablo Picasso.
