DeFuniak Springs holds a notable place in Florida’s history. Here, you can find a resort and campus built during the Victorian Era. Marketed to the nation as “The Education Resort of the South,” the campus was once gated and very exclusive.

A tour of Downtown will guide you through some of DeFuniak Spring’s most historic sites. Make sure to stop and see the Train Depot, the old Tented Classrooms, Hotel Chautauqua, and the Wooden Sidewalks.

Come during Christmastime to see the grounds as more than 6 million lights adorn the Victorian structures. A stroll while gazing at the lights twinkling in the spring-fed lake is the perfect way to celebrate Christmas in Florida.

If you’re tired of reading wine labels, then visit Chautauqua Winery! They’ll help you take the guesswork out of picking your new favorite wine with all-day tastings and tours through the vineyards.
