The Official Best Of was started in 2004 by Executive Producer, Brett Allen - a TV executive from St. Louis, Missouri. He saw a need for a researched travel resource that also provided TV features online as an additional resource for both in and out of state travelers. As a result, The Official Best Of was born. Each state production showcases outstanding "best" attractions in a variety of categories located throughout each state. A research staff studies online travel sites, state tourism information, CVB resources and other sources to determine whether an attraction merits the "Official Best" reputability. One distinction that sets Official Best Of apart from many other travel sites is that it doesn't accept advertising on either its television programs or its website. The selection of attractions is entirely by merit, and lesser known but worthy attractions are given the same attention as famous ones.

As with each state production, The Official Best of Florida for 2010 will offer a great resource for those planning a vacation, day trip or outing for residents within the State of Florida as well as out-of-town visitors. Official Best Of is currently working its way through all fifty states. Visit www.OfficialBestOf.com for more information.
