Madison, Florida was founded by cotton planters in 1838. Cotton was king in the old south. This northern region of Florida was part of the old south plantation region and still has many southern cultural traditions. Madison was a boom town in those days, and has a population today of about 3,000. It is located on US-90 between Jacksonville and Tallahassee in North Florida.

November is a great month in Florida. It's mostly cool and air conditioners are only needed now and then. It's even a bit cold now and then. Most of the snowbirds are back hiding out from the cold northern winter, so lines are longer at our local restaurants but Floridians are making more money which makes it okay.
HERE ARE SOME INTERESTING FLORIDA EVENTS FOR NOVEMBER:
FLORIDA WINERIES. Check the Florida winery nearest you. Many of them have wonderful weekend events that include music and wine tastings. Our site has information on 29 wineries scattered across the state. We plan to add even more when we have time to visit them.
