The area around Tallahassee, Florida, is often referred to as the “Real Florida.” It’s missing a multitude of condos and parking lots. Instead, large swaths of unspoiled forests and bear-crossing signs are seen, with a few grand old Southern mansions for flair. The crowds in the southern part of the state rarely find their way up here.
Seashell-gatherers, swimmers, and those seeking the sunâ€™s warming rays come to the Fort Myers area for its 50 miles of world-class white sand beaches. Anglers test their skill. Tourists who enjoy historical sites, museums, and sundry entertainment blended with natureâ€™s gifts find this to be an ideal vacation spot in southwest Florida.
