A natural playground
Jackson County, in the Florida Panhandle, is a Florida gem exuding small-town friendliness, country roads and natural beauty. Everywhere you look, there are a multitude of recreational opportunities, compliments of Mother Nature.
The Florida Caverns State Park offers the only guided dry-cave tours in the state. The county is filled with natural springs of crystal-clear blue water ... so clear, in fact, that you can go cave-diving in places like Jackson Blue Springs.
Jackson County also has an Agri-Tourism Trail featuring 31 unique stops for the whole family, such as U-pick farms, corn mazes and campgrounds. Farm-to-table restaurants are increasing rapidly here. However, they are not the only places foodies love. Southern Craft Creamery in Marianna has garnered accolades in several national publications for their flavorful ice creams, which include Vanilla & Satsuma Jam, Roasted Banana with Salted Peanuts, and a favorite in the South, Tupelo Honey.
Canoeing and kayaking are so popular here that Jackson County just held its first annual “Rock-A-Dock” event in September 2018. If you canoe or kayak here, chances are you’ll only hear the sound of your paddle dipping into the water. The county is also bursting with hiking, biking and horseback-riding trails. There are even trails where you can do all three!
Jackson County is a place to let go, breathe deep and relax in the serenity of the great outdoors.
