Florida native Jason Ferguson, author of “Moon Florida Road Trip,” has yet to find a corner of his home state that doesn’t hold some sort of surprise. With a background in alternative journalism and arts and culture reporting, Ferguson enjoys finding surprises and unusual sights in some of Florida’s most well-traveled destinations. He has written for publications ranging from Time Out, Travel + Leisure, and Caribbean Travel & Life to Florida newspapers such as the Orlando Weekly and Miami New Times. He, his wife, and their kids use their home in Central Florida as a launching pad for weekend adventures. Although their favorite spots change from week to week, there’s a consensus that the white-sand beaches of southwest Florida aren’t just the best in the state, but are possibly some of the best in the world.
