Are you in need of some natural beauty in your life? Maybe you have grown tired of the malls and shopping centers. Today is the day that you put down the iPhone and start looking at what is right in front of you. Living in Tallahassee is a blessing as it is filled with some of the most gorgeous destinations in the country. If you are new to the area or just want to take a new look, we have found three gorgeous settings you will want to see today. Let’s take a look at three destinations that will simply take your breath away.
If you are truly looking for a place to get back to nature, you will want to visit St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge. This is an incredible area where you really never know what you are going to see. Along the stunning hiking trails, you may come face to face with bald eagles, water birds, and other critters. It is a perfect location for bird watching and photography. Just be sure you have plenty of bug spray and good shoes as this is natural Florida you will be dealing with!
If you are looking for a gorgeous setting along with the ability to learn more about the area, a trip to Mission San Luis de Apalachee is definitely in order. Here you will come in contact with some of the original settlers of early Florida through the skilled reactors of the area. Talk to some early settlers and find out things you may not have known. Although keep in mind, that the park is family friendly, so you are not going to hear the true history of the area. There are certain aspects that are glossed over, which in this case it is understandable. Enjoy the park for what it is and relax in the beauty of the location.
There are few areas in Tallahassee that are going to be able to take your breath away like Alfred B. Maclay Gardens State Park. Here you can escape on a brick path into a secret garden. Or simply make your way to the swimming area and enjoy the cool water on a hot summer day. With all of the nice walking trails, it makes the perfect spot to get away from the crowds and enjoy some time for inner reflection.
