Wakulla Springs Florida

Wakulla Springs – A Must See for Road Trip Travelers

If you have a weekend retreat on your mind, this is a place to get away from city life or beach life. The lake supports a large swimming area – but I warn you about the temperature of spring water! There are great trails around the river along with canoe rentals nearby. If you must stray from the park, you are 30 minutes from Tallahassee, 30 minutes from St. Marks on the gulf and less than 90 minutes from Apalachicola, Florida, the former oyster capital of Florida.

Key West Buoy Florida

The Florida Keys and Key West – A Traveler’s Primer

The Keys are now the playground of Florida (and much of the world). The islands offer world class fishing, the best reefs in the northern hemisphere for diving, resorts renowned for their hospitality, beaches everywhere, entertainment, and some of the most famous restaurants and bars in the world. Cruise ships arrive daily in Key West dumping thousands of world travelers for the day, and expanding the international allure of the island.

But that wasn’t always the case with these metropolises. In the early 19th century those bright stars would have been Fernandina, St. Augustine, Key West, Pensacola and a little protrusion into the Gulf known as Cedar Key. The major cities as we know them today weren’t more that a thought!
