Some thoughts for ways to improve the Florida Region page (other user opinions welcome here):
Add a small line describing the most important fact about each linked city.
Make a hierarchy of these numerous airports, it seems a bit overwhelming for someone just looking to get into Florida. Rank them in importance and relevance, and add which sub-region of the state they are located in.
Add train info.
List 7 to 9 best things to see in Florida, with links to sight's city. The exhaustive list of Lighthouses seems too encyclopedic for the casual traveler. Maybe we can list Florida Lighthouses as a linked Travel Topic. Same for the national parks list.
This too seems very encyclopedic, I'm not sure a traveler interested in visiting Florida would be interested in this information. Also, Learn is not a part of Wikitravel's recommended Region template. Perhaps this heading should be deleted and the individual listing put in the city pages. Jtesla16 22:38, 4 September 2008 (EDT)
There are some city pages in Florida I think should be raised from Outline to Usable status. Can I make that status change or is there some review system?Jtesla16 17:33, 6 September 2008 (EDT)
Heya guys, I grew up in Pensacola, and after being invited, I figured I'd help you guys out a bit with the expedition for Florida. Right now, I really want to get the Pensacola article up to star status, and get Milton, Pensacola Beach, Perdido Key, Escambia County, and Santa Rosa County up to guide. However, since you guys need the Florida Panhandle worked on for your expedition, I'll work on that next, once I finish Pensacola. Also, I should be able to do some work on the Gulf Islands National Seashore article; I love that place! --Tally 15:32, 11 September 2008 (EDT)
Gulf Islands National Seashore
Does anyone have any idea on how I should format this article? It's a bit of a mess right now, and the Gulf Islands National Seashore is a challenge to discuss. It's located in two (noncontiguous!) states, Florida and Mississippi. It is subdivided into twelve smaller parks, each of which is very different from the others; some are beaches, some are islands, some are forests. Each has a different way to 'Get In' and 'Get Around,' and most are unconnected with each other. I'm thinking about giving each area a separate writeup, but how? Should I give each subpark it's own "See" and "Do" section? Or (overkill) separate articles for each? --Tally talk 18:47, 28 October 2008 (EDT)
