Tallahassee is a paradise for nature lovers and for those who enjoy the outdoors. The 3,000-acre Wakulla Springs State Park and Lodge contains America’s largest and deepest fresh water springs. Visitors here can take tours on riverboats and glass-bottom boats to observe wildlife both above and below the water. There are also camping, swimming, and hiking opportunities. The elegant lodge contains 27 guest rooms. The park is just a short distance away from Blairstone Forest.
History buffs can go back in time to the mid-seventeenth century by visiting the Mission San Luis. This mission was the capital of western Florida from 1656 to 1704 and is the only recreated Spanish mission that is open to the public. Tour guides in period costume guide visitors through the reconstructed buildings and exhibits.
