With a population of less than 300, its historical significance in Florida remains unparalleled. Just 20 miles south of Tallahassee, St. Marks was one of the most important early ports in Florida.
While it is small, St. Marks makes up for its size with a bounty of natural attractions. Visit the archeological displays at San Marcos de Apalache Historic Park. Walk the salt marshes at St. Marks National Wildlife Refuse and take a selfie in front of the St. Marks Lighthouse!
Wakulla Springs with its wonderful swimming holes is right down the road. You can charter a fishing boat with a crew or on your own at Shields Marina!
