5 Hidden Gems in Florida

We’re based in Central Florida and we love exploring our backyard. Every now and then we take the opportunity to venture off and see the beauty our own state has to offer with “staycations.” Here are a few hidden gems in the area that you probably don’t know about!

5. Florida Caverns State Park – This is the only park in Florida that allows public access to these magnificent open-air caverns. You also have the opportunity to go camping, canoeing, and kayaking. This would be the perfect little getaway if you’re an adventurous family.

4. Falling Waters State Park – This park is home to one of the very few natural waterfalls in the state. It also happens to be the tallest waterfall with waters rushing down 73ft into a large sinkhole. Locals say it’s best to visit after a heavy rain to see the waters at its best.

3. Crystal River State Park – Crystal River has the prettiest, most clearest waters in the state. It’s also the only place you can legally swim up close with manatees.

2. Rainbow Springs State Park – You definitely don’t feel like you’re in Florida at Rainbow Springs Park. It’s Florida’s little slice of paradise. Take advantage of kayaking and tubing down the beautiful blue springs. You’ll also see breathtaking waterfalls.

1. Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park –  Located on Key Biscayne, it is home to the oldest standing structure in Miami – the Cape Florida Light. The beaches here are pristine and most visitors can be found sunbathing or biking. This was also a stop along the Underground Railroad as hundreds of slaves escaped to freedom in the Bahamas.
