BE CAREFUL US notes all look fairly similar and are the same size and similar colour, always check when using your money.

I have to say though most people in Florida would not rip you off.

I would advise that you take around $500 in cash and the rest in travellers cheques.

Travellers cheques are very widely accepted (I have never been refused).

ATMs - Cash Machines

Most banks have automated teller machines (ATMs) located at their branches as well as at other convenient non-branch locations throughout their local areas for quick and easy withdrawal of cash. Depending on your ATM card you may have to pay one or more fees for a cash withdrawal outside your home area.

You can check the logos on your ATM card to see which of the payment services your card is compatible with. Then check these against the logos displayed on your local ATM to see if your card will work on this particular ATM.
