I am one of thousands of Floridians who were either born in the state or have lived here for most of our lives. The rapid population growth and unchecked development of the past half century have left us bewildered and saddened for the Florida we feel we have lost.
We remember the way it was and wish it were still the same. We know that can never be, so I created this website to help you find the places that still have that “Old Florida” feeling.
I hope our new residents and tourists will also enjoy learning about the state.
