Overview

Anyone looking to escape the hustle and bustle of the modern world for a while is invited to sit back and enjoy a leisurely trip down one of the best-known and most beloved rivers in the country. Flowing more than 230 miles from the Okefenokee Swamp in Georgia to the Gulf of Mexico in Florida, the Suwannee may well be the last unspoiled river in the Southeast.

Complete with travel information and tips for those exploring the area by water or by land, this comprehensive guide describes the history, major towns/cities along the way, wildlife, and personages associated with the river. As you journey down the river, you’ll stop by places like White Springs and Branford, Old Town and Fowler’s Bluff. You’ll see manatees, jumping fish, alligators, and many species of birds.

You’ll also be introduced to some of the most important people and groups in Florida’s history, including the Timucuan and Seminole Indians, Spanish missionaries and explorers, Stephen C. Foster, Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings, and William Bartram, as well as the organizations and agencies that have fought to preserve and protect this magnificent river and its watershed.

The Suwannee River Guidebook will open your eyes to a part of Florida you may be surprised to learn still exists, one largely untouched by developers and full of natural wonder.
