Historic Florida cities that a tourist should visit

Florida was discovered by Spanish settlers, so there are indeed many historical towns, including the first settled by Europeans and the permanent city of San Agustin (St. Augustine).

And just like in California (for example, in Santa Barbara, Carmel or San Diego), in Florida you can admire the colonial architecture. And the tropical climate makes visiting these towns even more exotic.

St Augustine is the first European city in the US, famous for its beautiful old town, lighthouse, the mighty Castillo de San Marcos and the beaches on Anastasia Island.

Micanopy is the self-proclaimed capital of antiquities in America. The residents of the city decided that they had enough antiques on the streets to deserve this title. And the shady alleys make the city look like Savannah in Georgia. Also in the fall, Micanopy hosts the Harvest, Music and Craft Festival.

Kissimmee is a small town near Orlando, also focused on families with children in Florida. And this is where the Walt Disney World Resort, Universal Orlando Resort and SeaWorld Orlando are located. And nearby are the Everglades swamps and several iconic outlets. In general, Kissimmee is for those who want to stand out from the crowd when traveling to Florida with children.

The White House on Key West (Little White House) was the winter home for President Harry Truman. He lived and worked in Key West, believing that in Florida his productivity increased. It’s much better to live in the tropics than in cloudy Washington, who can argue?

The Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse is a lighthouse located by a narrow bay, the construction of which was entrusted to George Gordon Meade, the future winner of General Lee at the Battle of Gettysburg. The lighthouse was built in 1860 and is still in operation.
