Hi there,
I'm trying to plan a road trip from Windsor Ontario Canada to Florida with my boyfriend and our families, we will be RVing and don't mind staying at different parks through out our 2 week stay in March. Things we are interested in are the not so touristy attractions, we would like to try hog hunting, hiking, some kayaking, airboating, and cavern or nature tours. We would like to visit Old Town, and we will be going to Daytona Bike Week for a couple of days at the end of our trip. We do not want to stay in or near busy cities or places like Disney. Do you have any recommendations of things we could do or places to stay in the areas of our interests. Again we are RV'ing.
Thank you
Hi Ashton, I'm Kevin Mims, VISIT FLORIDA's Outdoors and Nature Insider. I'm responding to a question you submitted regarding RV'ing in Florida.

Glad to hear that you'll be traveling the Sunshine State in an RV! My wife and I full time travel around the state in our RV, and primarily stay at Florida State Parks for a couple of weeks at a time.

Florida is a big state, with very distinct regions. I'm not sure how much ground you are wanting to cover in the two weeks you are here. On the way into the state, I'd stop and check out Florida Caverns State Park in Marianna, which is the only dry cave tour in the state. It's a cool spot.

North Florida is one of the best areas for hiking, and I'd recommend checking out the area around Stephen Foster Folk Culture State Park in White Springs. Here, you can camp, hike on one of the best sections of the Florida National Scenic Trail, ride bikes and paddle the legendary Suwannee River. This is one of my favorite small towns in the state, and I think you'll like it.

Heading south from White Springs, I'd say that you should see some of Florida's springs. Ichetucknee Springs State Park near Fort White is a great place. Lars Andersen with Adventure Outpost can provide tons of information and kayak rentals if you need them.

Another great state park is Paynes Prairie Preserve State Park near Gainesville. This is one of the best wildlife watching locations in the state, and has lots of trails, boardwalks, great camping, etc. Don't miss the town of Micanopy while you are here, it's one of the nicest small Old Florida towns you'll come across.

Well, hope that helps! Enjoy your trip!

-Kevin
