If you want to see the real Florida and not just the theme parks, you are in luck because Florida has over 170 state parks for you to enjoy. Since I moved to this state, it has become my mission to explore each and every one of these parks.
Take a look at some of the parks on my list.
- Alafia River State Park
A mountain bikers heaven located in Central Florida.
- Anastasia State Park
White sand beaches in a park with a bit of history.
- Hugh Taylor Birch State Park
An urban oasis in the Miami area.
- Little Big Econ State Park
Central Florida park located just outside of the city of Oviedo, FL. One of the best trail systems in Florida.
- Mike Roess Gold Head Branch State Park
Located in Keystone Heights FL, this is a great park to camp under the tall pines.
- Tomoka State Park
Close proximity to Daytona Beach and fantastic bird watching opportunities.
