Florida’s not just a destination for Disney lovers, beach bums and retirees. Just a quick peek at some of the activities you’ll find scattered throughout the Sunshine State remind you why for so many people, the word Florida is synonymous with vacation.
- There are 160 state parks in the state of Florida alone, scattered from its northern tip and extending down to the keys. The largest is the Apalachicola National Forest, located in the Florida panhandle, with over half a million acres that provide ample opportunity for hikers, boaters, hunters, and off-road enthusiasts.
- If you’ve ever wanted to try your hand at scuba diving, there are almost two dozen state parks that offer the opportunity to put your sea lungs to the test.
- For those who long for a more rustic Florida vacation, opportunities abound to take up weekend lodgings (or longer) in cabins that put you in the heart of wildlife country—or a little closer to civilization, depending on your aversion to all things creepy-crawly.
