Take A Break and Take a Virtual Vacation in Natural North Florida
Spring 2020 has brought a sllowdown to Florida tourism, and tourism worldwide.. Our Visit Natural North Florida region has slowed, too, and with the restrictions of social distancing and travel we’re all dreaming of better times to come. And we hope that potential visitors, from near and far, take care of themselves, and dream of coming to visit us when the “fever” breaks. In the meantime, take some time to peruse our special “edition” of Virtual Vacations in Natural North Florida. This post is an another in that series. More, featuring highlights of our 15-county region will follow, each including links to local highlights, where “Nature Is Our Theme Park“
No one ever said there was nothing to see or do in coastal Wakulla County, Florida!
Located just south of Tallahassee and Leon County, Wakulla County not only has an active and historic Gulf of Mexico coastline, but has some wild, scenic rivers and one of Florida’s largest freshwater springs. Driving down from Tallahassee (where the local regional airport offers connections worldwide) you’ll pass through Crawfordville, the county seat of Wakulla County. It’s busy there, as you’d expect, and it exists now as a bedroom community for Tallahassee, the state’s capitol. But, as Crawfordville Highway merges onto US98 at Medart, you’ll soon find the best places to visit. To the east, there’s St. Marks and Wakulla Springs and to the west, there’s the town of Panacea and the Ochlockonee River.
Wakulla County is the perfect place for a future dream vacation, or for a virtual one–right now!
