Start reading Off-Season: Discovering America on Winter's Shore on your Kindle in under a minute. Ken McAlpine, however, is a different kind of tourist. Unhappy with the stress and bustle of American life in general, he set out -- alone -- in his van to find places where what he considers the true spirit of "real" America survives. His hunting ground was the East Coast, from the Florida Keys to Lubec, Maine.

Off-Season : Discovering America on Winter's Shore. No Longer the Forgotten Season Just after Labor Day, Ken McAlpine said good-bye to his family and began a drive up the East Coast, from Florida to Maine, on a one-man quest to capture the elusive "forgotten season" of beach towns shuttered until the return of warm weather.
Off-Season is a moving portrait that brings to life the magic of the sea and shore in winter, the charm of beach towns emptied of summer crowds, and the warmth and eccentricities of year-round coastal residents who revel in small-town spirit. McAlpine skipped the more popular destinations like Nags Head, Virginia Beach, Cape May, and the Hamptons, opting to visit lesser known locales like Sharpes, Florida; Tangier Island, Virginia; and Montauk, New York. There he found people who celebrated the departure of the tourists with the cautious hope they’d return next summer.
