February 2018 News and Events
Quincy is a small town of about 7,000 people that is the county seat of Gadsden County in North Central Florida. It is about 20 miles west northwest of Tallahassee. The town is a good example of southern architecture from the era before the Civil War and during the Victorian period.
Several buildings and places in Quincy are on the National Register of Historic Places. These landmarks include the E.B. Shelfer House, the John Lee McFarlin House, the Quincy Library and the Soldiers Cemetery.
Quincy is a Florida Main Street community, and has a beautiful downtown area loaded with old historic buildings, restaurants and shops.
The Whip Waterfront Pub N Grub is located at the Whippoorwill Sportsman's Lodge on Lake Talquin near Quincy, Florida. Lake Talquin is a beautiful reservoir on the Ochlockonee River. The Lodge is a fish camp on the lake about 20 miles west of Tallahassee and 10 miles south of Quincy.

February 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 in Florida 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.

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.
