Florida Street Shopping Tips

Share on:


Five quick tips for a pleasant Florida Street shopping experience:

• Don’t take up any offers for local currency exchange or strip shows.

• Keep in mind that most of the panhandlers along Florida are professionals, it is preferable to donate to an official local charity or help someone you personally befriend.

• Florida is good shopping for tourist trinkets, postcards and international newspapers but for truly unique gifts, head elsewhere.

• The prices here for leather goods tend to be high but there may be some exceptions if you veer a little off Florida Street. Expect to pay 40-50% of what you would in the US or Europe.

• Florida is generally safe but it is so busy that one needs to be guard against opportunistic crimes, especially pick pocketing. Keep a close hold of your belongings, especially if there are throngs of people.
