For those who believe that the best way to understand someone is to walk a mile in his or her shoes, Florida's rich history features those whose footwear ranged from Native American moccasins to astronauts' boots. And there are plenty of opportunities to actually walk in those shoes. You can join in all sorts of historical reenactments—in full costume if you like. You have the unique opportunity to relive a part of Florida's long and fascinating past. You can also travel forward into the future.
