When most people consider visiting Florida, they think sunny beaches and Disney resorts. However, Florida is much more, with geography as diverse as the Sunshine State’s population, tourism opportunities abound statewide. North East Florida is one of my favorite places to visit. The climate is more moderate, with changing seasons, majestic live oaks, rolling terrain, rivers, springs, hiking and bike trails and eco-tourism opportunities at every turn. One of my favorite places to visit is White Springs in Hamilton County. It is a historical and rural community of approximately 800 residents about half way between Jacksonville and Tallahassee, just off of both I-10 and I-75, allowing easy access from any direction. White Springs has a downtown historical district that can be easily toured on foot. The Florida Folk Festival is held annually on Memorial Day weekend at Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park. Eco-tourism is featured at Big Shoals State Park with hiking, biking and birding trails and Hamilton County offers some of the best biking and kayaking in Florida.
Located just across the Suwannee River from the historic district is ( ) at 786 NW Stephen Foster Drive in White Springs. Suwannee Valley is one of Florida’s newest nudist resorts and was recently honored by the as the fastest growing AANR club for 2017.
