In collaboration with Main Street Bartow and the Florida Tin Can Tourist Association, vintage RV’s will be parked and on display in downtown Bartow surrounding the History Center. Step back in time to the nostalgic days of Florida’s tourism industry when automobiles took to the road with these unique campers in tow. Venture inside the History Center to the Community Gallery and learn more about Florida’s lost attractions and the Montreal-to-Miami Dixie Highway. Pick up a copy of the Images of America book, “Tin Can Tourists in Florida, 1900-1970,” by Nick Wynne, available for purchase in the History Center’s gift shop.
