USA Today recently published ten "unspoiled" areas of Florida. The list is a good beginning, but by no means exhaustive.
- The Panhandle
- The Big Bend
- Gainesville and towns south
- Highway A1A through Nassau and Duval counties
- Deland, Lake Helen, Cassadaga
- Pinellas County
- The Redland
- Calusa Blueway Paddling Trail
This region of northern Florida is "typified by State Road 2, aka Hog and Hominy Road," Hiller says. You'll see old, steam-driven grist mills and "still-operating general stores where you can buy county newspapers no one ever heard of." Among its highlights is the old Chautauqua town of DeFuniak Springs with its Victorian architecture. In Falling Waters State Park, the state's highest waterfall pours up-side down into a sinkhole: "You stand and look down at it, not up."
