When most people think of fall weather, their minds don’t automatically go to Florida. Fall in Florida pretty much means the temperature drops from 90 degrees to 80. But, North Florida is special. Up here, we do get fall leaves, cool breezes and sweater weather. There are plenty of fall events to get you in the mood up here in North Florida, from fairs to festivals. Here are just a few fall events I’m looking forward to this season.
Chances are if you’ve driven over the Florida border, you’ve passed through Lake City, Florida. However, when I tell people that’s where I live, I usually get confused looks in return.
When I first moved here two and a half years ago (wow, I can’t believe it’s been that long!), I didn’t know much about my new home either. With a little exploring I discovered that Lake City is more than just a place you pass through; it’s a destination.
For those of you who don’t know, I live in Lake City, a semi-rural town less than an hour south of the Florida-Georgia border. It’s a city full of southern charm, and one of my favorite places is Lake City’s historic downtown district. Although it’s pretty small, some new businesses and restaurants have begun to transform the area into a place that caters to the younger generations in town.
My favorite restaurant in downtown Lake City is Marion Street Bistro and Brewhouse. The delicious food, the chill vibe and the fact that it’s nestled right in the heart of downtown makes it my go-to restaurant when I have guests in town or want to have lunch with the girls.
