Tallahassee Florida

No city in Florida is very far from either the Gulf of Mexico or the Atlantic Ocean. Tallahassee is no exception. The Gulf is only about twenty miles to the south. En route southward along State Highway 363 is Natural Bridge Battlefield State Historic Site, where the Union Army was routed during the Civil War. At the end of State Highway 363 is the town of St. Marks. The town sits at the confluence of two rivers - the Wakulla and the St. Marks. In this small town is the San Marcos de Apalache Historic Site. The history of this important fort spans four centuries. The fort changed occupants like bad real estate. The site’s history began in 1528 when the location at these two rivers appealed to Panfilo de Narvaez. Notable individuals had a hand in the history of this small fort. Hernando de Soto arrived in 1539. A lighthouse now stands at the site of de Soto’s landing. St Marks’s Lighthouse is part of St. Marks’s National Wildlife Refuge. The Spanish, the English, Creek Indians, and Americans were all occupants of the fort. The fort’s final confrontation occurred in 1861 when the Confederates took control of it. Soon after, the Battle of Natural Bridge was fought just north.

US Highway 319 follows the eastern boundary of the Apalachicola southward away from Tallahassee. The Apalachicola is the largest of Florida’s national forests, consisting of over 950 square miles.....read more about Tallahassee Florida »

Highly-acclaimed for its 27 miles of soft white sand, Panama City Beach continually ranks in the top 20 for beaches in America. While pictures can tell one story, the sight of the endless silky sand that slides towards the sparkling emerald green waters of the Gulf of Mexico is always breathtaking in person. The sand, blindingly white, is the perfect place to nestle in for an afternoon of sunbathing, while the crystal clear waters offer boundless inshore and offshore pursuits to occupy your vacation, including swimming, snorkeling, surfing, scuba diving, and anything else you can imagine......read more about Panama City Beach Florida »
