History Has Forgotten This Bizarre Florida Event From 56 Years Ago

If you were on a game show, what would you want the prize to be? Cash, a vacation, or maybe a new car? How about your own island?

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

It’s a pretty great prize, if you ask us. What would you do with your own Florida island getaway?
