There are also many Victorian homes, and the gorgeous Herlong Mansion. Large, moss-draped oak trees shade the streets. And the old cemetery is very scenic!
I also like Madison a lot. It has many lovely old homes and churches, and the business district is quaint and fun to stroll through--a very attractive little town.
Honorable mention goes to Monticello---another historic town with the courthouse in the middle. It's in the pretty "hill country" just east of Tallahassee.
And DeFuniak Springs has a wonderful Victorian district around
its lake--very pretty! (They have delicious fried green tomato sandwiches there!)

It's nice to see that another person knows of Micanopy!
The town itself is very pretty....the people are also friendly.

I will add one that I thought was cute. Sebring.
West coast: Cedar Key.
Inland: Mt. Dora/Eustis/Tavares triangle and Howey in the Hills (perfection)
East coast: not saying

Does anyone think that Tavares or Mt. Dora fit into this category? I haven't been there yet, but are they small hidden gems, too?
Yes & yes, Jammie. All have hills!! Make sure to leave US27 if your around Lake Placis and Placid Lakes!
The most beutiful scenery in all of Fl has got to be US27 exit at 19 North towards Tavares. Gotta see it to beleive it. Visibility easily 20 miles on a clear day from the top of steep hills. Greenery all around... Arrive at Howey in the Hills...perfect!

Thank you for the suggestion. I'll have to do that.

Love the back area of Webster, that is where all the temps park and sell.

Just one more reason for me to move to Fla. I can shop, buy and sell antiques everyday of the week. Here in Ohio you are pretty much limited to 4 months per year.

Webster.... wow... I have made some great money with the finds there over the past 20 years.

When Eustis Flea Market was big I wouldn't miss it either.

I posted this in another thread about this town.

I like the old town charm with all the moss hanging from those huge trees!
