Day trips in Florida

Florida day trips

There is so much to see and explore in Florida, why not get out for a day trip with your partner and experience some of the many attractions our great state has to offer. Here are our picks for the top three day trips in Florida.

Chautaqua Vineyards

Located in DeFuniak Springs outside Pensacola, Chautaqua Vineyards offers a lovely tour of their grounds and facility, as well as a wine tasting. DeFuniak Springs is a fun little town to explore, as well.

Jacksonville Zoo

One of the best zoos in the state, the Jacksonville Zoo not only has an amazing collection of animals, which are housed in natural settings, they also have a train that tours through the facility. Saves your feet, and saves all that sweating on a hot summer day!

Rock Springs Run

Florida has some amazing waterways, and the gorgeous creek at Rock Springs Run ranks up there with the best of them. Explore this natural wonder by canoe or kayak, and be amazed at how peaceful it is, even though it is only half an hour from downtown Orlando.
