Persuasive speech outline purpose: To persuade my audience to donate blood through the American Red Cross. Introduction:
Long before the Florida Turnpike and the Interstate Highway System ramped up to full speed and swampland in Central Florida was paved over, Florida tourist venues and roadside attractions were an eclectic mix of fun, imagination, intrigue and amazement for everyone. From reptile farms, tropical gardens and aquatic springs to dolphin shows, old west towns and museums of the unique and strange, tourists visiting Florida were able to catch, either by design or on a whim, these venues, as they rolled down US highways 1,19, 41, 301 and all the off-the-beaten-path back roads. But as time marched on, so did the tourist, as they stayed on the interstate and headed for Orlando, to see what all the hub-bub was about in the early 1970s. The venues and attractions may be long gone, but they are not forgotten, as memories of the wonderful tourist and roadside attractions that were a piece of Florida history, are recalled.
After revisiting this popular tourist attraction with a different, fresh mindset, I am able to support the argument made by Dean MacCannell that tourism is a search for authenticity. While tourists come up to Griffith Park to check off a popular Los Angeles landmark and “must see attraction” from their long list, they are also coming to witness a taste of the “real” Los Angeles. However, this “real” and authentic LA that they seek will not necessarily be found here up in the mountains themselves, but instead in the land beyond and in the people they encounter.
Have you ever had an enriching moment that opened your mind to the possibilities in the world? Well I have, when my family and I went to Las Vegas, Nevada. Yes, Vegas is a little odd to have a life-changing experience, but we didn’t follow the normal Vegas path. This
“Now I know what you’re all thinking, why is a southern girl like me displaying my work at an event that is considered the ‘World Series’ of the art world?

The warm Florida heat beats my shoulders, and sweat drips down my spine. Large touristgroups gather together blocking the street, and their constant buzzing noise bombards my ears.As I take in the families swarming the sides of the streets, a rush of impatience shoots up myspine. The fragrance of kettlecorn wafted down the street. Flavorless saliva fills my mouth, andmy eyes devour the passing cart. Cameras flash at the families dolled up for a memorable familyphoto. A miraculous moment under the shade beckons my presence; however, a different gravitypulls me away. My eyes make contact with the looming iron gates welcoming me to the entranceof the mundane path, and there the cobblestone street splits off, curving its way through thegates. My

This festive event lit up the Intracoastal Waterways from Lantana to Delray Beach – making it a multi-city spectacular of lights!

Residents were encouraged to attend the watch party at the Boynton Harbor Marina which featured live music from Davis and Dow, and tasty food and cocktails options from Two Georges Waterfront Grille. The partnership with Toys for Tots and the U.S. Marine Corp gave parade watchers the chance to share kindness and holiday cheer by donating an unwrapped toy for a child in
Miami was hot. It was an early Sunday morning in June when I found myself in Florida, driving to the port of Miami. Still tired from the red eye flight the day before, my excitement pushed away the grogginess that had enveloped me since touching down. The Adonia came into view, Carnival's new cruise ship, offering travellers the opportunity to help local communities on existing projects while on holiday. The ship sails from Miami to the Dominican Republic where we would be joining community projects for 3 days, before sailing back.

Eventually the day I dreaded came. On February 12th, 2016 the four of us, my mom, dad, sister, and I, embarked on a journey that, little did I know, would change my outlook on sailing forever. Once I stepped foot on the Disney Wonder I told myself “It’s Disney, what could go wrong.” As soon as I walked into the stateroom I jumped on my bed and unpacked.
For example, using a leftover coffee can for loose nails or screws, or even washing and reusing a plastic zip-loc bag instead of throwing it in the garbage. Thrift shopping is a way of reusing someone else’s unwanted goods. As I spoke about in an earlier speech about thrifting, I included many locations and ways to thrift, also the benefits to the shopper and the donator. One place in particular was shopping at the local boys and girls club. I personally shop there, keeping my eyes open for a good deal. For example, the pair of jeans that I am wearing today was purchased from this store just a few months ago. I paid only $8.00 for this pair of Lucky Jeans and according to buckle.com, a retailer for lucky jeans the retail price is $99.00 that is a savings to me of $91.00.I am not the type to worry about name brands, but quality usually does cost more. If I can get a quality pair of jeans at a fraction on the price, I am glad to shop at the thrift store. I am thankful to the person that made the donation of the lucky jeans and they can benefit from that donation. According to the IRS webpage, IRS. Gov it explains that an individual can donate items like clothing, household furniture and furnishings, a car or boat, even taxidermy. The donations are appraised, by the donator, and recorded. At the time of filing taxes if the donation equals at least $500 for the year, the donator may take advantage of the
