I had lived in Florida a long time before I discovered the rich and often tragic history of native Americans here. Here are six parks, museums and events that tell those stories.
It’s that time of year! Here’s Florida Rambler’s comprehensive Holiday Boat Parade Calendar with dates and links to dozens of boat parades around the state.
The festival offers tradition — fry bread and alligator wrestling — but also celebrates the diversity of native cultures. Entertainers include the high energy Native Pride Dancers from Minnesota.
Apalachicola celebrates its local seafood industry, and oysters take center stage (along with country music star Rodney Atkins)
This Gulf Coast community’s annual Stone Crab Festival marks the beginning of Florida’s stone crab season while showing off the city’s historic center and bayfront attractions. Let’s get crackin’.
Pensacola is one of the premier fishing ports on the Gulf of Mexico, and they celebrate with the fresh, local catch each year at the end of September.
The weather is perfect for getting outdoors, and there’s no better way to enjoy Florida in the Fall than a good, old-fashioned seafood festival. Free parking; Free admission. Camping, fishing, kayaking nearby.
Organized bike festivals create safer longer rides for bicyclists while giving them beautiful places to explore and enjoy the scenery.
Seafood festivals are common in Florida, but Cedar Key Seafood Festival is uncommonly appealing. Not only is Cedar Key historic and charming, it’s also clam capital of America.
Labor Day brings together about 600 bicyclists from around the country to enjoy pedaling on scenic roads over gentle hills with friendly drivers.
