In Florida, you can find a city for just about every lifestyle. The truth is that our state is incredibly diverse, and there’s so much to discover, whether you love the foodie scene or the beaches. In addition, for many people who decide to call Florida “home,” the outdoors is a big attraction. Of course, it’s not just all beaches, as we’ll find out in a moment. But this week, I wanted to share with you outdoor lovers some of the best cities just for you. After reading, if you’re thinking about buying property here, reach out and let’s talk about your options!
Perfectly positioned just south of Fort Meyers’ Beach, this small coastal city is truly wonderful for any outdoor lover. With ever-popular Lover’s Key just nearby, you can spend all the time you want kayaking and fishing in your own backyard. At the same time, you’re not far from the true wilderness with spots like the Everglades and the Fakahatchee Strand, which both offer unparalleled adventure.
Another city, one that flies below the radar in terms of properties in Florida, is Marco Island. Because it’s a little more secluded, it also offers some of the best outdoors in the world. In fact, the Ten Thousand Islands are right in this area’s backyard, as part of the Everglades too. This labyrinth of waterways provides activities like kayaking, as well as wildlife watching, boating, and so much more.
Although many locals might not think of St. Petersburg as a hub for outdoor activities, you’ll find that it still offers plenty. First, the city itself is full of world-class amenities, from dining to museums. Yet, with places like Fort De Soto and Weedon Island nearby, you have so many options available to you for outdoors. Whether you’re into camping or jet skiing, the city has something for you.
But for a change of pace, let’s look at a Florida city that offers something beyond water activities. And that option is Ocala. This is another spot that is often overlooked but has a range of choices if you love the outdoors. For one, access to the Ocala National Forest is definitely worth it. With many different areas within the forest, you can get your fix for spring swimming, hiking, camping, hunting, fishing, and more.
Finally, Cedar Key is a sleepy island town founded on fishing. And it is filled with outdoors that are a little more off-the-beaten path. Fishing and kayaking are two that remain the most popular, but there’s also wildlife watching, boating, and more. Of course, if you just like to get a little sun, it’s also a wonderful place simply to be outdoors while avoiding the crowds.
