Gulf Specimen Marine Lab & Aquarium

Come see and touch Marine life for fun and education. Everything from sponges and algae to seahorses, sharks, and turtles!

Reviewed By Janna64 - Wesley Chapel, Florida

If you are in the area and like marine life, you MUST visit this place. It looks small but we spent about 4.5 hours here. My granddaughter loved it and so did her mother and I. There is so many things you can touch and hold and see up close. It was a slow day when we wee there and at the end of the day, the volunteer allowed my granddaughter to go with him to feed the critters and she even got to help feed some of them. We learned so much and had a fabulous time.

TNT Hideaway Day Tours

Reviewed By Ann L - Tullahoma, Tennessee

We visited this area in June, after a tropical storm had come in. Water was high, but safe. We took our granddaughter who was not very experienced. The young men who got our kayaks were very helpful. I have two artificial knees and have trouble getting in and out of the boats. The boys were very friendly and courteous in helping me in and out. We went up river for about 2 hours and then floated back, and saw several alligators sunning and too many birds to count. Would and will do this activity again.

San Marcos de Apalache Historic State Park

Reviewed By opadett - Fredericksburg, Virginia

We've been going by on 98 or I-10 for many years, and finally decided we should stop. this location. historically speaking, ties together the period from the Native Americans, and Spanish(St. Augustine), through Pirates,indian wars of 1817, and the Civil War. This small museum and grounds display excellently the conflicts and history of nearly 400 years in one location.

Edward Ball Wakulla Springs State Park

Reviewed By CecilBDeschlep - Clear Lake, Iowa

Waukulla Springs State Park is difficult to get to but worth every second of travel. Located between Tallahassee Florida and the Appalachacola Bay, the enormous, natural spring generates 40 million gallons of water a day which flow south the Gulf of Mexico. The spring water is a constant 68 degrees and crystal clear. Temperature encourages exotic waterfowl, gators and Manatees to congregate. Exceptional clairty makes the guided boat trips oustanding. Our group saw dozens of types of birds, all the gators you want and many families of Manatee. Our guide Jim was outstanding. A "font" of information and good humor. Be sure to ask your guide how to pronouce Waukulla. Admission is only 8 dollars per person and the trips last between 45 and 55 minutes. Several movies were filmed at Waukulla Springs. A really grand hotel overlooks the gigantic spring with many walking and observation points. Best part of our trip to St. George Island.

Reviewed By MNhearty - Duluth, Minnesota

George Griffin Pottery is located in a beautiful setting. The pottery is professional with just the right amount of whimsy. George is a very welcoming soul who loves to share his knowledge and a story or two. He has two beautiful friendly dogs and chickens. A must stop if you're in the area.

This was a pretty neat little side stop for pictures. The bugs are pretty heavy there though. Too bad these cant be restored. A lot of old trucks and a few old cars rusting through. Good picture spot though.

Edward Ball Wakulla Springs State Park

Reviewed By Amy M - De Leon Springs, Florida

Wakulla Springs State Park is a beautiful place to spend the day, or longer if you stay in the Lodge. We brought bicycles and enjoyed biking along the Sally Ward and Hammock Spur trails, which wind through the forest and included beautiful boardwalk sections over streams and sinks, and along vast areas of cypress and cypress knees that look like something from another planet. These trails are fine for hiking or walking too. The Lodge’s grounds are wonderful, perfect for a long stroll and planted in azaleas and camellias, alive with color when we visited in March. As for the waterfront area, the water becomes clear on occasion and at that time it’s great for swimming, snorkeling or jumping off the 20’ platform. There’s a grassy area for relaxing, a picnic, etc. A boat tour of the Wakulla River is an absolute must, and should be taken first thing in the morning to see the greatest amount of wildlife. When the water is clear, the glass bottomed boats run as well. There’s no kayak or canoe area and swimming is allowed only in the section within the roped off area, so there’s no access to the spring head. There’s a great little museum in the ticket office to visit with a real mastodon bone and other artifacts.

Wildwood Country Club

Reviewed By PAMELA O

Wildwood's restaurant is run by 'The Seineyard' which also has restaurants in Tallahassee and Woodville.

Their seafood is always fresh and cooked to order. They also have landlubber items which are equally as good. You won't walk away hungry either--portions are generous. If you order a salad with your meal, be sure to try their house dressing.

Wakulla River Park

Reviewed By rogersober - Clermont, Florida

We stopped but no Manatees were about but the beautiful facilities and area were a great addition to our trip. The restrooms were clean. The dock was nice and viewing area ready for the animals to be about. The water is really pretty in this area and a marina is just down the street. This is a great spot for a wedding or reunion and is available for rent.
