Often called “the Original Florida,” North Central Florida comprises the north-central part of the state, with rentals situated in small, turn-of-the-century towns, scattered amongst magnolia trees, pine forests, and southern live oaks draped with Spanish moss.
Home to Ocala National Forest and the Suwannee River State Park and Wilderness Trail, and a myriad of lakes, rivers, and springs, as well as golf courses, North Central Florida provides opportunities for hiking, cycling, boating, canoeing, kayaking, fishing, golfing, swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving, and wildlife viewing.
From the Goodwood Plantation to Live Oak’s Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park to Lake City’s annual historical reenactment of the Battle of Olustee, North Central Florida is steeped in the traditional culture of the Deep South. The region also boasts numerous art galleries, museums, theatres, concert halls, and stadiums.
North Central Florida offers an array of natural, outdoor, and cultural attractions, as well as a variety of facilities and rental accommodation options, and is accessible from Jacksonville International Airport, or the Regional Airports of Gainesville or Tallahassee.+ More
