Lakes and Rivers

DSC_0658lakesriversFlorida is known for her coast. However, you may find that the real beauty and adventures lie within her numerous lakes and rivers. Boating these waterways can provide countless hours of enjoyment.

One of the wonders of the state includes the Suwannee River. Here you will find over 80 beautiful miles of water that will take you from North Central Florida to the Gulf Coast. Along the way you will find a number of fresh water springs hidden along its banks. The river is mostly undeveloped and gives a true sense of Florida’s rich water history.

As you navigate the St. Johns River, you will have over 300 miles to explore. The river is like a step back in time. You’ll enjoy passing by quaint little towns and experiencing nature at its best. You can expect to see bald eagles, alligator turtles and even manatee. Restaurants, marinas and lodging can be found throughout the river way.

Florida has more lakes than most people can count. The two largest are Lake Okeechobee and Lake George. Both are known for their excellent fishing. On Lake George you will find two fresh water springs that are especially popular with boaters. Lake Okeechobee is a popular stop over for the boaters using the Okeechobee Waterway that connects the Atlantic with the Gulf of Mexico.

Whatever destination you chose you will not be disappointed. By Rusty Gardner
