Where the Rub­ber Hits the Road.

DINE and Destinations - - EDITORS LETTER -

“We pro­vide you with con­trol over your jour­ney so it is a very com­fort­able, safe and re­ward­ing ex­pe­ri­ence, even for first-timers,” says Dave Hunter, prodi­gious road-trip­per, gourmet and travel au­thor.

Now in its 17th edi­tion, this in­valu­able driv­ing re­source has been pro­vid­ing the in­for­ma­tion you need to com­fort­ably make the jour­ney to and from the Sun­shine State since 1992. It’s a plan­ning guide con­tain­ing 25-mile (40 km) coloured strip maps—each about half-an-hour driv­ing time, an exit ser­vices direc­tory, a driv­ing hand­book packed with lo­cal knowl­edge, and a source of en­ter­tain­ment with its mile-by-mile trav­el­ogue.

Food lovers driv­ing In­ter­state-75 be­tween Wind­sor, Ont., and Florida will be de­lighted to hear they do not have to de­pend upon fast-food exit ser­vices for their din­ing ex­pe­ri­ences. There are some won­der­ful “white table­cloth,” chef-owned and man­aged restau­rants along the way.

Travel au­thor Dave Hunter and his wife, Kathy, have per­son­ally re­viewed a num­ber of these eater­ies, and de­scribed their rec­om­men­da­tions in their pop­u­lar snow­bird bi­ble, Along In­ter­state-75.

Along In­ter­state-75 is avail­able at ma­jor book­stores, as well as the Cana­dian Au­to­mo­bile As­so­ci­a­tion (CAA) in On­tario. An 18th edi­tion of the book will be re­leased in No­vem­ber 2014, just in time for those head­ing south to es­cape the next win­ter.
