Here are a few posts that will point you towards those one of a kind Florida experiences.
South central FLORIDA
From the Florida Atlantic Coast to the Florida Gulf Coast, we share a few destinations and adventures.
You’ll discover enchanting ancient hammocks where Florida panthers still roam, thrill rides on air boat rides through spectacular scenery (and alongside the most alligators you ever want to encounter), barrier islands you feel are yours alone to enjoy, the serenity of tucked away rivers, and plenty of fresh and delicious farm to table experiences (land and water).
Here are a few of our posts:
- The perfect winter family vacation in Martin County, Florida

- A Uniquely AWESOME Houseboat Rental on the Treasure Coast, FL

We can't wait to spend more time there exploring with the girls. For now, we have the following:
NATURAL NORTH FLORIDA ROAD TRIP
Natural North Florida is an area that encompasses incredible natural diversity between Gainesville to the east, Sopchoppy to the west, Cedar Key to the South, and the Florida-Georgia state line.
It's an area that sits between the capital, Tallahassee, and Jacksonville on the Atlantic Coast.
We loved our 1 week road trip through this lessor known region of Florida! We had some of our favorite family travel moments and adventures in the US. The scenery and diversity was spectacular.
