Found along Florida’s unspoiled Big Bend area, Suwannee is located at the junction of the Suwannee River and the Gulf of Mexico. As a result, you'll find plenty of water-related recreation: boating, fishing, paddling, even "house-boating." Inside the Lower Suwannee Wildlife Refuge, you can spot turtles, dolphins and hundreds of bird species. And along the 207-mile Suwannee River Wilderness Trail, which runs from North Florida to the Gulf, you’ll experience the tannic-colored water and rock-encrusted banks of the Suwannee River, memorialized in Florida's state song, "Old Folks at Home," by Stephen Foster. The trail offers a collection of springs, fishing villages and Class III rapids, yet the river corridor remains largely unspoiled – perfect for canoeing, kayaking, camping, boating, hiking, biking, birding and horseback riding.
