Step back in time to the nostalgic days of Florida’s early tourism industry when automobiles took to the road with campers in tow. In partnership with Main Street Bartow, visitors to downtown Bartow will enjoy an up close and personal look at many of the unique RVs and campers from the era of Tin Can Tourism. The RVs and campers will be parked along Davidson Street and Central Avenue around the History Center. Venture inside the History Center and learn more about Florida’s lost attractions and the “Montreal to Miami” Dixie Highway. Visit the History Center gift shop and purchase the book, “Tin Can Tourists in Florida 1900-1970,” by Nick Wynne.
