WHITE SPRINGS: FLORIDA'S FIRST BIG TOURIST ATTRACTION

White Springs first became noticed by tourists in the 1830s when it was believed bathing in the local sulphur spring was good for your health.

The population of this small town is about 800. It is located on the Suwannee River about 25 miles downstream of the Georgia border.

A beautiful feature on the river north of town is Big Shoals and nearby Big Shoals State Park. Rapids like this are unusual in Florida.

WHITE SPRINGS RECOMMENDED RESTAURANT

Fat Belly's
16750 Spring Street
White Springs, FL 32096
Telephone: 386-397-2040

Fat Belly's is a good restaurant, especially for a town as small as White Springs. Their menu features delicious hamburgers, chicken wings, and several different seafood dishes.

The cuisine definitely features Southern cooking, and the service is nice and friendly too.

January is a good month with some cold weather. We even turn our heaters on now and then. Most of our snowbirds are back so the lines are longer at the restaurants. It's also cool enough on many days to sit outside - sometimes too cool.

HERE ARE SOME INTERESTING FLORIDA EVENTS FOR JANUARY:

ALL REGIONS

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 27 wineries scattered across the state. We plan to add even more when we have time to visit them.

FLORIDA TOURIST ATTRACTIONS. We have an extensive list of Florida Tourist Attractions. Some of them are well known; other are a wonderful step back into Old Florida.

A few events are cancelled on very short notice. I do my best to ensure that our information is correct and current, but I recommend you call before leaving for the event to make sure it's still on.
