Make Your Trip to Miami and the Florida Keys Postcard Worthy

Make Your Trip to Miami and the Florida Keys
Postcard Worthy

Interactive ebook helps tourists experience Miami and the Florida Keys like a native. Greater Miami and the Beaches was the vacation destination for over 15 million tourists in 2015 with nearly 3 million choosing the Florida Keys as their leisure time destination. The draw for visitors traditionally has included beach activities, attending theme parks, shopping, and tropical urban nightlife. A new interactive eBook launched on’s Kindle Bookstore hopes to expand activity choices for tourists by showcasing postcard worthy locations and unique experiences enjoyed by locals.

“With so much to see, do, and experience within a few hours drive it’s a genuine
challenge for the residents of South Florida to decide how to spend their free time
- a challenge oftentimes shared by visitors to Miami and the Florida Keys. At first
glance, few can imagine the diversity, quality, and vastness of nature, culture,
music, mojitos and margaritas that exists between the 180 or so miles that
separate North Miami Dade from Key West” said Randy De Witt, author and
photographer of “Miami and the Florida Keys: The Traveler’s Ultimate Guide to
Postcard Worthy Locations”

A photographer, author, and educator, De Witt says he didn’t envision the guide
as a typical tourist or travel photography book, but rather an inspiration book that
offers readers epic views and experiences and places foreign to even lifelong
residents of South Florida. Digitally flipping through the pages, it’s evident the
guide offers a plethora of experiences to explore; from a 12th century Ancient
Spanish Monastery, to exotic tropical gardens, hand feeding tarpon in the Keys,
to eccentric performances of wharf performers in Key West. The interactive ebook,
viewable on tablet devices, smartphones, and computers, highlights seasonal events, noteworthy restaurants, and side excursions for readers as–well–as hyperlinking to maps, online reviews, and websites.

DeWitt said “I was surprised how many Floridians didn't know about the
incredible places and experiences so close to home for them. The guide evolved
over time, as friends and lifelong residents of South Florida asked time and time
again: Wow, where did you take those photos? That was the beginning of my two
year journey to create a guide that explores over 50 unique locations and experiences from North Miami to Key West.”

Vacationers hoping to capture their own postcard worthy photos are in luck. The
guide offers up technical photography tips intertwined with creative suggestions
for each location to help visitors take better photos, find unique perspectives, and
explore locations that feed their creativity and adventure.

The experience took more than two years to complete with visits to over 50
locations in Miami and the Florida Keys. When asked about his journey, De Witt
said, “Meeting people that share in my passion to travel, explore, and revel in
culture and diversity was the best. I found myself in some interesting
predicaments.” Always one to try to get the photo, De Witt recalls wading neck
deep into the Big Spanish Channel at Big Pine Key to get a wide, low angle of the
old overseas railroad bridge only to find himself in a huge school of 100lbs
tarpon. Other near misses involved alligators, Fantasy Festival partiers,
