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.
You may be surprised that some of these "Old Florida" places are in large urban areas and cities. You just have to know how to get off the beaten path and enjoy the quiet places that exist almost everywhere.
I hope our new residents and tourists will also enjoy learning about the state. You can learn from the comfort of your home or from your favorite road vehicle.
Enjoy browsing this website by using the drop-down tabs at the top of the page, using the search bar, or going to our SITE MAP that shows all 700 plus pages and articles. I know you will find many things that interest you.
