Important Tourist Dollars


Where Will United States Residents Seek Their Vacation Rendezvous This Year? Europe Is Practically Closed Through the War. Trouble and Uncertainty Are in the Orient. Mexico Has Tropical Heat. So the Answer IsCanada
In Florida everyone is friendly to visitors: police officers, clerks in stores, filling station attendants, waitresseseveryone who comes into contact with tourists. They unfailingly take time to inquire about the visitor's home town, if he is enjoying his visit, and what he has seen. Then they offer suggestions as to other spots to explore. The newspapers of the city of St. Petersburg collect the names and home addresses of persons registering at their tourist bureau. The next day an announcement appears'" that Mr. and Mrs. So-and-So from such-and-such a place are guests in that city. St. Petersburg has placed upward of three thousand green-painted benches on its sidewalks, many .of them in the shopping district. These are an invitation to the visitor to rest and amuse himself by watching the passing throng. Here, visitors from all over the continent become acquainted, boast about the . glories of their home towns and the accomplishments of their offspring. New friendships are made, and the tourist lingers in St. Petersburg and parts with his dollars. It is not unusual to see one of these visitors look up from his newspaper and exclaim delightedly. "Look. Ma! (or, Look, Pa!). We're news! There's a write-up about us in the paper!'' That write-up is a small thing, but it does a great deal to warm the cockles of a visitor's heart. Possibly Floridians learned from Dale Carnegie that there is no sweeter music than the sound of a person's own name, no more pleasing picture than his name in print Registering at the tourist bureau in the city of Fort Myers, the visitor is asked whether he or she plays golf. If the answer is in the affirmative, complimentary tickets to their country club are presented. When the recipient arrives for his game he finds his coming has been heralded and he is welcomed and extended every courtesy. After his game, for the modest sum of twenty-five cents, he is served a delicious afternoon tea on the club house verandah. The club manager visits with him. explains the history of that city, the points of interest. Restaurants and stores are recommended and the visitor leaves well-stocked with information about the city. assure the recipient that it actually was bought in that faraway spotand not an afterthought purchased in one's home town. That locale label says to the person receiving the gift: "I was thinking of you while in Florida." Realizing this, prqduct-of-Florida labels are put on everything offered for the tourist trade. These labels have another function; they advertise Florida wherever these goods are transported. Much of the fruit preserving is being done by the canneries, but a considerable portion of it is the result of private endeavor. Many a womE.n or girl with no other talent is pocketing her share of those extra tourist dollars. Much of this merchandise is being sold in gaily-decorated roadside booths. Some women have even gone a step further; they have packed these jars in .groups of five assorted conserves, labelled them "The Famous Florida Sampler" and offered them as the ideal gift for the folks back home. This venture has proved a big success. In Florida, as elsewhere, hobbyists had difficulty in finding a market for their wares. Today, artists, photographers, wood-carvers, makers of shell ornaments, and a host of others, are concentrating on small, easily carried articles which sell readily to visitors. No chance is missed to bring their work to the attention of the tourist. Merchants sell it on commission. Tables laden with it are to be found at almost every historical point of interest. It is displayed in tea rooms. Roadside booths are stocked with it. Many hands which would otherwise be idle are kept busy earning tourist dollars. Growers of citrus fruit have established booths along all roads over which the visitor must pass when leaving southern Florida. Large net bags filled with the best varieties of oranges sell like the proverbial hot cakes to homeward-bound tourists. In Florida, talent of every kind is being exchanged for those important tourist dollars. That state is also on its toes to the value of the friendly thank-you-and-come-again letter. It a visitor has registered at a tourist bureau, about a month after he returns home he will receive a picture postcard from, the locale in which he registered. On the reverse side a handwritten message will read something like this: "Do you remember this spot? We hope you enjoyed your visit and will come again next winter." If the recipient has the price, he likely will go again. He has been warmly welcomed and made to feel important. He has been interestingly entertained and has probably formed new friendships. The people down there remembered him even after he returned home. That postcard is proof of that. Even if he can't go there next winter he will boost Florida to his friends and neighbors. out being sold on their antiquity, he undoubtedly would have been moved to profanity. But famous feet had once .trod those streets, and who is the modern motorist that he should grumble? As to the application of psychology in our country, Canadians would be well advised to make those none-too-good sections of our highways romantic. Wherever possible, inexpensive signs should be placed. In print readable from a moving car they should state that such-and-such battle, massacre, or other dramatic event of history took place in that locale. Any lonely stretch of indifferent road could be enlivened by a sign stating that this trail once knew the silent tread of the Indian and the rumble of pioneer carts. It's merely the old idea of a sufferer from toothache immersing his discomfort in an exciting murder story. As fast as circumstances permit,, our forts and ancient landmarks should be restored. Highlights of the history of those places should reach the hands of every tourist visiting the province in which they are located. History has high entertainment value, and Canada has a colorful history. These places would also afford an excellent opportunity for presenting to the tourist's ncrtice an assortment of Canadian-made merchandise suitable to be bought for souvenirs and for gifts for the lolks back home. The states of Kentucky, Florida and California are making the best of similar opportunities, and always the gift or souvenir bears a sticker attesting that it was bought in that locale. The tea rooms and smaller restaurants of Canada have much to learn yet about bidding for the tourist dollar. Dusty windows and saddened curtains do nothing to augment business. Also, a goodly majority of our caterers have yet to learn the low cost and high-attraction value of color. In this'age of color, the white serviette has little place. Varnished, washable table tops, place mats and serviettes of assorted colors, a gay pottery vase ^holding a few spirited flowers indicate to the visitor that this will likely be an excellent place to eatto part with tourist money. In Canada, as in those states which have made a success of the tourist trade, everything possible should be utilized to entertain the tourist and delay his return home. Every province in the dominion is rich in things which possess entertainment value. Each has its history, its museums, its public buildings, its parks and its bands which could enliven them. Each has its factories. Many have mines, fisheries, fruit groves, and entertainment galore. We have everything in Canada to give the tourist the time of his life. All that is needed is for us to wake up and realize on our assets. Then there is the matter of those extra dollars the tourist has brought along to spend on merchandise. Seeing that he does leave them in Canada might- well be the work of every man's and woman's club in the dominion. A large number of our unemployed young people are adept with their hands. Organized, instructed and supervised by members of our various clubs, they could produce a wide variety of articles which could be readily exchanged for tourist dollars. There is a vast industry here waiting for development. These extra tourist dollars might well be the concern of our olddr women who need money. Canada abounds in fruit, both wild and cultivated. It also abounds in discarded small glass containers. Canadian women rank high as makers of jellies and jams. Why not put their talent to work. "Famous Canadian Samplers" could be the answer to the tourist's problem as to what to take home to the elderly, the sick, and to all those with a sweet tooth. And what about our Canadian honey? Attractively labelled, much of it can be exchanged for tourist money. Another job which might well be undertaken by our various clubs is an annual invitation day. Working under the direction of the Tourist and Convention Bureau, they could attract hundreds of thousands of visitors to Canada. All that is needed is a telephone directory from every American city. We could even go farther afield for names and addresses. Then each club could stage a drive for persons willing to buy five postcards picturing Canadian beauty spots, five stamps, and willing to devote a few minutes to writing a come-tc-Canada invitation to the five names supplied to him or her. The cost to the individual would be slight, the result in incoming tourist dollars might be staggering. Miami. Floridathe most progressive touristattracting city on the North American continent has embarked on a similar project. Again working hand in hand with the Tourist Bureau, our clubs could undertake the thank-you-and-come-again letters which should follow the return home of every visitor who sets foot in our country. There is yet another job which could be undertaken by our clubs: the supplying of Visitor-From-Canada stickers. These might well be supplied to all cars leaving our country. Applied to the right-rear car window, they would be seen by thousands of residents of .the country visited. Their value as tourist attraction? Every person who is made Canadaconscious is a prospective visitor to Canada. Possibly our immigration officials at the border would undertake to hand these to all motorists leaving our country. There is work for all if we are going to achieve prosperity through the tourist dollar. Canada the summer playground of the world! That is not a dream of an impossible Utopia. It will be fait accompli when every man and woman works toward that end. Canada is a nation at war, but the unparalleled opportunity confronting her was born of war. It is now that opportunity must be grasped. Human beings, are creatures of habit. Where they have gone once, they will go again. How many vacationists from other countries acquire the Canada-habit depends on - what Canadians do about itand how zcton they do it

The answer isCanada. . Despite the adverse propaganda which has (been circulated in their country. Canada this summer will see a mighty invasion of Americans laden with American dollars. No passport is required to cros- the most peaceful international boundary in all the world. And the I American dollar is worth one-dollar-and-tenI cents in Canada.

There is sound psychology behind these courteous acts. How well a person is treated, how important he is made to feel, how interestingly he is entertained, determine how long he will remain in any locale. Floridians realize that.

Let Us Look at Ourselves


E have been doing this, superficially at least. Watch the crowds as they pass shop windows, and I am not speaking o women only. The love of self, and interest in self, is ingrained. How easily hurt we are when a slight is put upon us evert in as small a matter as the misspelling of our names. Such an important word, we feel, should be known of all men! How we like to talk about our moods, our.peculiar ways, our likes and dislikes. "A bore." someone wrote, "is a person who talks about himself and so gives me no chance to talk of myself." We have been looking at ourselves. But now we must go a step farther. We must look at ourselves critically, for the easy ways and easy days are gone forever. We, and all that we stand for are threatened. The simple things which we accepted without gratitude now have become infinitely dear. We spoke of this as we drove through the mountains last week, enjoying every peak and valley, every stretch of meadowland and lake. Even fhe bullrushes around the ponds, and all the wildflowers have taken on a significance which stabs the heart. We saw many people travelling, hiking, playing tennis, swimming, as people should in these golden days . of summer. But even the laughter of children now has a sorrowful echo, and anxiety sits, an unwelcome guest, even at picnic tables, for in the gayest company the conversation, sooner or later, comes back to the black nightmare of Europe. We wonder why the world, this world of beauty and abundance has become such a. place of horror, and we say it has all happened so suddenly. But that is all wrong of course. The present distress has had a long history. We remember, with regret and apology, how hard we were on the people that kept on telling us that this sort of thing was bound to happen. We didn't believe them, for human beings are well equipped with the ability to reject a thought that is unpleasant. Before we sinkj too deep in the morass of remorse, let us enter this plea for our dullness. We really did believe that mankind had gone loo far on the road to civilization to actually revert to barbarism. We knew that there was much selfishness in the world, and that the cure given long ago when the Word was flesh, and been only partially received. But we kept telling each other that one increasing purpose ran through life, and the general direction of humanity was upward. When we look at ourselves we are comforted to note that most of us are ready to relieve physical needs. Look at the preparations being made for the receiving of refugee children from Europe. Men and women are actually looking forward with pleasure to the coming of these homeless little ones. Women are sewing for them now. Vegetables are being canned and fruit preserved more than ever before, and a great campaign is being waged to the end that nothing be wasted this year. ! Orre woman who has raised three girls of her own has asked for six refugees; another woman on a fatm near Edmonton wants five little girls under! five years of age.. A woman at Olds has added a still higher note to her application. She sent in word that she would take the last two children to be allotterd. "I do not ask that they have curls or blue eyes, or any beauty at' all. I do notmind if they are

homely, sickly, or even- sullen. Any two little ones in need of a home will be welcome. There is no holding back on the part of our people, when the want is a physical one, but there is more than this required of us if the world is ever to be saved. There is a poverty of soul ss well as of bodya blight which falls on hearts as heavily and destructively as bombs fall on roofs. In spite of nineteen hundred years of Christian teaching, we are still trying to fashion a newworld on something lower than the Golden Rule, and as a result of our stopping half way ort .the road to Salvation, we . have before us and around us a world of trouble and distress. We certainly have all the cleverness \ve need, but cleverness is not enough. By the help of science the agricultural cutput can be increased until there is enough for everyone. But everyone will not get it until man's heart has become softened an* tender. We can all see this. We have aB talked about it, but the cold, clear light of today, when so many of our dreams are zhjattered and our old guarantees are brokeni_we are keenly conscious of our own shortcomings as individuals. We all know why we hato the whole fabric of Nazism and Fascism. We see that in them the soul of. man is destroyed. We know that our Christian democracy is a spa.cious house ire which the soul of man can go in and out and find pasture. But we also know that we have been very lukewarm in cur attempts to demonstrate this to the world around us. I saw a number of recruits marching today behind a pipe band under a hot sun along the street Some of them looked, very young r-too yourrg for service, and some too old, but they all had a look of determination which smote my conscience and I stopped to look a.t them in humility and admiration. Tiley are. offering all they have for an ideal. I wonder how many of us are willing to work at home with the same renunciation of our own ambitions. Dorothy Thompson says we have allowed democracy to drift into something resembling a debating school. We do not like the word propaganda, and that is a pity. There is nothing wrong with the''effort to spread an idea, if the idea happens to be a good one. I wonder if we had been working seriously and enthusiastically at the business of spreading Christian principles, would we be as divided as we are? If we had done our duty as Christians we might have been saved the humiliation of seeing some of our people trying to show their loyalty by burning Mennonite churches or breaking the furniture in German restaurants. What have we done to impress the foreign people with pur own respect and love for this country? Dp we make enough of Empire Day, and Dominion jDay? Do we stand at attention when we sing ,God Save the King? And what about the way |New Canadians are naturalized? is there any ceremony or celebration to impress them with the solemnity arid honor of Canadian citizenship? j I think of young Canadian-; born Germans | nurtured on their parents' love for the fatherland, which ,is strong, in all nationalities. We have taken for granted that they will become good citizens of Canada withoult any effort on our partjust as we have believed our |o%vn children will imbibe religion :if we merely expose them to it The secret of our Complacency i in these matters is not bard to find.

WASHINGTON. Oct. 15(V> The submarine Dorado today was lifted by the Navy as lost after serving as a combat ship for less than two months. A communique said that the Dorado, which was commissioned on Aug. 28, was "long overdue" and must be "presumed to be lost." It carried 65 officers and men. Commanded by Lieutenant commander Earle G a f f r e y Schneider, 31, of Locust Knoll, Arnold, Md., the Dorado was of 1,525 tons displacement and carrying 10 21-inch torpedo tubes. The 307-foot ship was the 13th sub lost since America's entry into the war. Two are listed as sunk, 10 overdue and presumed lost and one destroyed to prevent enemy capture. While no reference was made as to where the loss occurred, it was presumed the action was in the Pacific.

TOURISM:

IT'S EVERYBODY'S
The full text of Mr. Jones' address follows:
Travel really is everybody's business. As we. carefully scrutinize the research and statistic factors as they apply to all aspects o"f the travel business in the seventies, we are agreed, I'm sure, that the industry is going to be bigger and better than ever. To put it simply, there are going to be more people, traveling to more places, .with more money -to spend and the desire to spend, than ever before! As we ponder the move into the seventies, and .the bigger and better aspects, we quickly realize that the key word in the new decade will be MORE! Whether it's plane seats, hotels, destinations anything that has to do with travel they will have to be creatively packaged to be made more attractive to morepeople. cal and personal care, education, recreation, a wide spectrum of luxury goods and services and, of course, travel. a beautifully dramatic and emotional aspiration. And travel advertising, probably more than any other category, is and always will be an emotional appeal. More dollars are being spent, by states, by regions, by cities, and attractions than ever be.fore. And what does this mean to the Miracle Strip Council member? It means a heck of a lot of new competition for the tourist dollar. It means if you want to stay in the tourist business you are going to have to fight for it. the traveler. St. Louis was one of those cities competing for the highly profitable convention business. Due to its central location, excel-. lent hotels, and convention facilities, it has been one of the country's leading convention cities since the program was organized in 1910. Then, as now, this program is financed through voluntary memberships by industry and individuals who recognize the value of conventions andtourists to the welfare of the community and its people. himself, and so, all too often we see apathy from the average taxpayer who wonders why any money should be spent on tourist promotion. Quite often we see apathy on the part of the businessman who cannot see a direct connection between his business and the business of travel. And, of .course, we have problems with the naive resident, who loving the area, and realizing its natural attraction to travelers, feels that promotion "just isn't necessary." Is traveling big business . . .? 1596 of our Gross National Product can be attributed to travel. In 1969, over $42 billion dollars was spent in the U.S. for travel. Travel expenditures create economic activities as the money passes from hand to hand. They cause airplanes to be built, hotels and motels to be constructed, food to be produced, automobiles to be built, shoes to be manufactured, medicine and chemicals to be supplied? and on and onDo any of these things touch a city like St. Louis. We are world headquarter city for Monsanto Chemical Company, second to Detroit in auto production . . . .home of McDonnell - Douglas Aircraft, shoe capitol of the country with firms like - Interco, Brown

money available or it reverts to General Fund. Naturally, we won't let that happen. We estimate for 1970 that this fund will be in the area of $600,000 dollars. And remember, three years ago we didn't have a penny to spend in this area. I mentioned also that our Mayor stated that visitors to a city are. good business . . . Thousands of local residents . . . hotel and motel employees, restaurant operators, waiters, cooks, dishwashers, department store and specialty shop sales people, taxicab drivers, telephone operators, food suppliers and others, are direct beneficiaries of the millions of dollars spent each year in St. Louis by visitors. The money they earn is then passed on to others in the community . . . the supermarket, the gasoline station, the landlord, the mortgage company, the lawyer, doctor, drug store, hardware, insurance man, and many more, and of course, to the city, state, and national government in taxes. Directly or indirectly everyone in the community benefits from the visitor's stay in St. Louis. If cities like St. .Louis want to stay in the tourist business, then we are going to have to have supplemental income uch as the tourism, tax. to South Sea Islands, but if we can get the return flights in, it will certainly help to balance our trade payments. heir time to a full day, and in 1970 are going to 56 hours . . . they feaured us on the front over of their company magazine in June, as the 'bright new city . . ." We now operate two information centers, one in ;he lobby of the Spanish international' Pavilion, downtown, which, by the way was the Spanish overnment Pavilion at the New York World's Fair in 1964-65, and moved to St. Louis and re-opened this past year as a unique new tourist attraction . . . Our other nformation center is on :he arrival concourse at Lambert-St. Louis Airport . . . My young ladies there average over 15,000 inquiries per month, every month of the year. In the first nine months of 1969 the tourist department processed and answered over 36,000 inquiry letters from prospective tourists, and, by the way, everyone of our inquiries are back in the mail within 24 hours of the time we receive them. In 1970, with our first full time spending program for advertising, we expect to double the -figure of a year ago. In numbers, during mid-season, we counted license plates from 31 states per day, and on the -year estimated more than a million. and a quarter visitors,

The following is an address made Wednesday night by Mr. James E. Jones at the annual Miracle Strip Council meeting in Fort Walton Beach. Mr. Jones is Tourist Director of the Greater St. Louis, Mo., Convention fit Tourist Board, and is recognized as an outstanding authority on the tourist industry. Local members of the Miracle Strip Council were highly impressed with the remarks made by Mr. Jones . . . so much so that they are having published the full text of Mr. Jones' address as a public service to acquaint local citizens with the importance of the tourist industry to the overall economy. It also should be remembered that tourism is Bay County's largest industry and also its fastest growing one. The Miracle Strip Council is comprised of tourists interests stretching from Panama City to Pensacola.

TRAVEL TRIPLES
^ The Saturday Review indicated recently that by 1975 we can expect that air travel will have tripled; and automobile travel will be up 40%. That "higher, real incomes, longer leisure time, demographic expansion and increasingly cheaper and varied tourist plant facilities will provide the essential conditicois for the growth of tourism."

OUR ROADS BAD


The other area we have to think about is the family group that has always in the past hopped in the trailer to spend weekends at the local park. Florida highways are one of the biggest problems that you face in this area. To cite an example, over the Christmas holidays, my family drove from St. Louis to Bradenton and on our return had thought about swinging North to spend a couple of days in this area. We passed it up however, because of the idea of having to fight the long drive over a two lane road. It was so easy to move across Interstate 75 and avail ourselves of the'services nearby. If you don't think highways are important to travel, then you are .in the wrong business. If you- want this future business, you had better get your legislature involved. This is a project that cannot wait another five or ten.years. If you wait five years, forget it, because the business will have passed you up. This will include the fishermen, as well as the general beach visitor. I've seen

INCOMES RISING
%

The fact is that rising incomes in conjunction with population growth are adding up to a sizable expansion in the dimensions of the nation's consumer market. In the course of the seventies, real disposable personal income will increase by more than 50?b, or at an annual rate of almost 4-

ST. LOUIS STORY

TAXES NECESSARY
There are a lot of people in this land who' wonder what the convention and tourist business is all about, and some of them are in the business, and they want to know why we should spend money for it, or why we should have a tax on it. And, in St. Louis today, we do have a tax on it, for hotels and restaurants. Until three years ago no one really considered St. Louis to be a tourist town . . . I mentioned what one writer, has said about it. Recently I was invited to address a group of business people in one of our many large and sprawling suburban

Vi%. Since the population will grow about 1.2% in that decade, real per capita spending power will rise substantially. By 1980, per capita income will exceed $4,300, for a decade increment of about two fifths. Thus, not only will the market place grow significantly larger over "-the next decade, but the living standard of the American family will grow appreciably. Continuing the pattern ... in the decade of the seventies, the discretionary dollar will grow at an accelerated pace, _this means that the nation's consumers will be', spending relatively less of their earnings- to meet essential nee'ds and' substantially more for luxury. 'In addition, the shift from necessities to luxuries in consumer spending 'will continue to chaiige the contents of the American family's shopping basket in the decade of the seventies. The importance of such necessities as food and clothing, which currently claim about 31(,o of the family budget, will decline to 27',c. It follows then, that a larger proportion of total consumer spending will go for cars,. appliances, shelter, medi-1 communities.

The biggest problem you and I have to face todav is the era of the j u m b o jet. While our country has always been a prime destination for world-wide travelers, the U n i t e d States in recent >ears has increasingly become a point 'of departure. Each year this disproportion becomes more striking; it is likely to accelerate in the future unless we take steps now to insure a two-way flow of international travel. The United States Travel Service, our Federal arm for tourist promotion, may at last this year get its first respectable budget to tell the world about America. State and local governments, area councils and individual attractions may at last have a chance to put their best foot forward. People ail over the wjrld want to know more about us. But to do so, they need realistic facts about costs, especially about inexpensive ways to travel here. They need to be told about the variety and spectacular nature of A m e r i c a . They need to k n o w in advance that they will be warmly welcomed by all Americans. We c a n ' t stop those Americans who u->ed to go to Florida and now go first hand what other parts of your own state are doing right now. Your state government had better sit up and take note of the importance once again of the value of tourists as opposed to commercial industry or those important dollars will go elsewhere. For our program this year we are zeroing in on the family an Des Moines, Chicago, Milwaukee and other cities to take an easy five hour drive to Surprising St. Louis. I'll keep them in the metropolitan area for three days, and then pack them off to Mark Twain Country at Hannibal, Jesse James Territory at Stanton, Silver Dollar City at Branson, or to the beautiful resort sections around the Lake of the Ozarks. What we are doing is giving them a two week package in our State . . . I call it, "Keep Missouri Green . . . bring money!" spending an average of $25 per day during a three day visit.

TOURIST DEFINED
How do we define a tourist? Visitors enjoying themselves in our community, paying us for it, and saving us millions of dollars in taxes.

WE ALL BENEFIT
For the average man who says "we have too darn many tourists now," or the businessman who says, "What good will it do?" let me point out that the travel industry is now the fastest growing industry in America and the world. It is the third largest growing industry in the I'.S. today. The major problem faced by our industry is how to expand transportation, accommodations, attraction and travel services at a pace equal to the public's growing ability and desire to travel. I mentioned that we now have tax dollars in St. Louis for Tourism. This is a one percent tax on hotels and restaurants, with the funds specilically designated to be used for promotion of St. Louis as a Convention and Tourist C i t y .

Surroundings elegant, and costly
The first thing you notice about the modern, glittering cities and towns along Florida's southwest coast is that they live up to their projected image, and more so. Awe mixes with admiration as you drive through the greatest concentration of some of the most splendid living accommodation man has conceived. Strung out along the 65-mile strip of sea and sand that begins with lively Miami Beach and terminates in dignified Palm Beach are estates, mansions, hotels,and long narrow cliffs of luxury condominiums. At Fort Lauderdale "where the sun and fun never ends" the fabulous Gait Ocean Mile has 22 high-rise apartment buildings with suites selling for $60,000 to $90,000; penthouses up to $200,000. Thousands who might not otherwise be able to afford to live in such elegant surroundings are being lured to West Palm Beach where hundreds of millions of dollars are being spent on the construction of a huge condominium complex. The buyer obtains ,a mortage on his individual apartment just as though he were buying a singlefamily residence. In the evenings these newcomers can mingle with the oldtime wealthy residents, window-shopping under the spotlight palms of Worth Avenue. But for "all the millions of residents and tourists that pour into this region there are still quiet out-ofthe-way places the miniwilderness of the upper Loxahatchee River between Jupiter and Stuart, the Seminole Indian Reservation located between SR 9 and the Sunshine State Parkway.
