Orlando, Tampa, St. Petersburg, Maimi, Tallahassee, Key West, Jacksonville. These are cities for which you know the names. Centers of commerce, tourism and life for so much of Florida. Pro sports teams, theme parks and the state capitol bring to life everyday Florida for literally millions throughout the year.
Yet they do not hold the keys to life if in Florida. So much of this place can be found in her small towns and cities.
Places where locals live, work and play, but also places where travelers can visit, enjoy, shop, eat and stay. There are plenty of places outside the big-guys where play is always on the menu and you’ll find so many things to do you won’t know what hit you.
Florida is nothing if not a tourist state. Here you’ll find plenty to keep you busy. Yet do not hesitate to look beyond the big-named, marquee spots for your next Florida getaway. There is so much to do here, the theme parks are only a beginning.
And no, you don’t have to be a local to enjoy what these smaller communities have to offer. So, without further time to waste, please take a look at these great Florida towns and communities when you’re thinking about a Sunshine State getaway.
