When you think of a Florida vacation, what pops in your mind are most likely the Orlando theme parks, the Space Coast of Cocoa Beach, the historic sites of St. Augustine, South Beach in Miami, and the Florida Keys. However, there is a different side of Florida, which every visitor can enjoy as much as Disney World or South Beach. Whether you like the outdoors or would rather shop, Florida offers the best.
If you like the outdoors, Florida has much to offer in the way of crystal-clear natural springs. Located in North Florida is a small town called Fort White, and its main attraction is the Ichetucknee Springs State Park. The best way to enjoy the 6-mile long Ichetucknee River is by tubing. The water is refreshingly cool, and diverse wildlife can be observed from the river. The park also offers picnicking, snorkeling, canoeing, and hiking. Tubing and snorkeling equipment is available to rent from local shops that cater to the park’s visitors.
If you enjoy small quaint towns, Seaside, located in the Florida Panhandle, is the place to visit. Seaside was the setting for the movie “The Truman Show.” It is a beautiful community, filled with unique homes and guesthouses, shops, and restaurants overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. Walking down the streets of Seaside will transport you to a time when life was simpler and uncomplicated.
Florida is the ideal vacation spot for people of all ages and temperaments. Whether you are looking for the glamour of Palm Beach, the Margaritaville-type atmosphere of Key West, the fun-filled Disney parks, the excitement of Nascar car races, the Fountain of Youth in St. Augustine, a world-class golf course, or a secluded beach, Florida will not leave you disappointed.
