Tall order: 1st time ever in USA, what do I HAVE to taste?

I realize this is a huge question, but I am coming over for the 1st time ever in November. We are staying at Lake Worth and hiring a car. So -

*What are the foods I HAVE to taste while in Florida??*

We love our food (obviously!).

I dream of tasting lobster and stone crab for the 1st time, also hopefully lots of other seafood.

I like burgers, french fries and fast food in general (should I hang my head in shame now?). Beef if well done. I love pork when it is extremely tender, maybe with crispy bits. So, ribs will be one thing to try?

Also, I like chicken and wings with spicy sauce.

I like spicy foods, Indian and tex-mex (well, what do I know, I´ve only tried it here in Finland!) and anything barbecued.

And, ha! As I am a woman I luurve chocolate and biscuits, candy & pastries.

So, here´s a challenge - I have two weeks, an once-in-a-lifetime trip, and really really want to enjoy my food.

Which dishes to try?
