Florida Travel: Sunshine State’s Endangered Species, Drive-In Movie Theatres

Feel like doing something wild during your Florida travels? How about spending an evening with one of the Sunshine State’s endangered species, the drive-in movie theatre.

According to the United Drive-In Theatre Owners Association (UDITOA), 1958 saw the peak of drive-ins with 4,063 in the United States.
