I had never thought about visiting Central Florida until I read this incredible guide. I was aware of locations such as Sea World, Busch Gardens, and the Kennedy Space Centre, but I was fascinated by the varied experiences you can enjoy which cater from the most ambitious to those who just want to relax. The diverse restaurants were fantastic, especially the Professional Wrestling Theater where you can watch the performance while enjoying your meal.

Hainan Kvaala writes to encourage couples to spend time together exploring the sights, sounds, tastes, and activities of life. Adventuring together will help couples build bonds that will carry them through the hard times. In The Couple’s Adventure--Over 200 Ideas to See, Hear, Taste, and Try in Central Florida, Kvaala gives ideas on how to explore Central Florida. Unlike other guides to Central Florida, this book does not just spend time in Orlando. Kvaala makes sure to include destinations on the east and west coasts of Florida and north and south of Orlando. I spent a lot of my growing up years in the St. Petersburg area and go back every few years. Kvaala discussed some places I have never heard of but I can’t wait to return to the area and try the places mentioned.

The Couple’s Adventure is set up in an easy-to-use manner with each location described in enticing terms. At the end of each description, Hainan Kvaala gives contact information including the site’s web address, their Facebook page if they have one, and the physical address. There are four sections of the book, each jammed full of places to visit while in the area. Section 1 discusses places to see including the fauna and flora that make Florida special. Section 2 discusses places to go and listen to various types of music. Section 3 covers 69 places to try out the food and drinks. The last section, Section 4, gives places to go and be active: from bicycling to racing. I highly recommend this book for couples who have never been to Florida as well as to those who go there on a regular basis. Although this book is designed for couples, I also recommend this book for families as well.

The book covers most things people look for when they travel to Florida--beaches, bars, historical tourist attractions, popular restaurants, and locations featured on social media; but there are little-known places too, hideaways tucked away for those looking for a unique travel experience.

The book is conveniently categorized for easy reference--things to see, hear, taste, and try. And website links to these locations are included for more in-depth information. This book takes the guesswork out of a road trip. Some of the locations covered are Brevard, Indian River, Sarasota, Sumter, just to name a few.

The Couple’s Adventure – Over 200 Ideas to See, Hear, Taste, and Try in Central Florida by Kvaala is a unique book on adventures in the central part of the state. The book is broken up into four sections, See, Hear, Taste, and Try, and there are more in some of the sections than others, such as there are 69 ideas to Taste and only 11 things to Hear that Kvaala could find. You can see Lowry Park Zoo in Tampa Bay, the Hollis Garden in Lakeland or the Kennedy Space Center. You can listen to waterfalls at the Sunken Gardens, or eat at the many restaurants Central Florida has to offer. And one that sounds interesting to me is you can try out Wild Willy’s airboat tours or try putting the pedal to the metal at Orlando Kart Center. Lots of fun things to do.

We have been to Central Florida several times and I am interested in different things to do when we go back. The Couple’s Adventure by Kvaala certainly gives plenty of things to do and see. It does list all of the major attractions, but there are many other interesting and enjoyable things I found in this book that can be fun and even more cost-effective. I like that the addresses of each place and the website, as well as the Facebook page where applicable, are listed on the pages so that you will be able to find out all of the information you need before you take your trip. If you are thinking about a nice romantic getaway, Central Florida sounds like the right place to go. I encourage you to check out Kvaala's book for more information.
