Sixty Plus - "Florida - Its National Parks and Snowbirds" with Marilyn Straka

When: February 13, 2017 - 1:00pm

Why do people visit Florida in the winter months? A visit to the Sunshine State is a welcome change from the snow and cold of the north. Some come to explore beaches, collect shells, or go fishing, but Marilyn went to see its National Parks: The Everglades (swamps and alligators), Biscayne Bay (all underwater) and Dry Tortugas (a Civil War fort set against a white sand beach). We are able to see it all in this visit to Florida: history, nature, and snowbird activities.

Marilyn is the director of On the Level Walking Tours in San Francisco. She leads walks throughout the City but also takes her travelers to far-flung places through her armchair travels.
