Florida Caverns State Park. Probably the coolest place we visited in 2016, in my opinion.
Falling Waters State Park. The waterfall wasn’t flowing much that day and it wouldn’t really show up in photos. It was still pretty cool because I didn’t know we had any waterfalls in Florida!!
Apalachicola National Forest
A beach we passed along the way that happened to be a WWII D-day Training site. I have no clue what it was called or what town we were in. Which I LOVE!! It was so amazing to be so unplugged for a full 2-3 days. We didn’t have service the ENTIRE trip and it was so awesome.
We also found this super awesome place! It was free and it had fish tanks, and tons of information all about the things you would find in the Apalachicola Forest.
This was Hamilton’s FAVORITE part! We stumbled across this amazing boardwalk that looks out on an entire forest of Dwarf Cypress trees! It was so beautiful and crazy to see those trees. They were about as tall as me and had zero leaves! They were all bonsai trees and it was just so cool because usually you only see tiny bonsai trees in people’s windows or something, never a whole forest of them!
We went to so many beaches and it was kinda the best!
Spent a full week in Tennessee! We went to Fall Creek Falls and did the cable trail, Lookout Mountain, Signal Mountain, and Franklin, TN.
Spend many, many weekends at Disney.
We stopped at Devil’s Millhopper Geological State Park.
// we went to 7 beaches! Holmes, Siesta Key, Coquina, Whitney, Daytona, Cocoa, and New Smyrna Beaches.
// we went to 5 state parks. Florida Caverns, Falling Waters, Fall Creek Falls, Gold Head Branch, and Devil’s Millhopper State Parks.
// we went to 2 state and national forests. Tate’s Hell State Forest and Apalachicola National Forest.
// we went to 3 states. Florida, Georgia, and Tennessee. okay, okay, we didn’t REALLY do anything in Georgia, but we did drive through it, and it was quite a beautiful drive!
// we went to Disney countless times! We went at least 6 times and I loved it haha. I know this isn’t TECHNICALLY traveling, but people travel from all over to go here, soo I’m still including it.
Places we will travel to in 2017.
// Myakka State Park, FL.
// Little Manatee River State Park, FL.
// Colorado. To see my best friend from growing up!
// Ocala National Forest, FL.
// Highlands Hammock State Park, FL.
// Jupiter, FL.
// Little Talbot Island State Park, FL.

I know 2017 will be filled with even more adventure. I am so excited for all the places we will go to and for the places we’ve already been!
