     Where you'll see more cowboy hats than mouse ears and old blue jeans than fancy suits. The real Florida, not much different than it was umpteen years ago. Remember, the farther North you go in Florida, the farther South you get! Florida tourism at its best, a great tourist destination.

     Explore the many beautiful rivers, including the famous Suwannee River of Old Folks at Home musical fame, also known as Way Down Upon the Suwannee River. And there's at least 9 or 10 more great rivers in the area. Check out more fresh water springs than any place else on this Great Green Earth. For those adventurous among us this is also the Cave Diving capital of the world!

     There's State Parks, County Parks and hidden wonders all over the place featuring the delights of scenic North Central Florida. Please leave only footprints and take only pictures.
