Here are the top ten articles for the Florida Site! These rankings are live and get reset at the beginning of each month, so check back often to see what your fellow visitors are most interested in!

1. Visiting Bok Tower Gardens
If you enjoy a peaceful meander through botanical gardens, Bok Tower Gardens in Lake Wales, Florida, is a good place to spend some time. Here is what you can expect to find there.

2. Paynes Prairie Preserve State Park
Just 10 miles from Gainesville, Paynes Prairie Preserve is unique among Florida state parks. It has an interesting history and geology, as well as herds of American bison and Spanish horses. It contains 30 miles of trails for hikers, cyclists, and equestrians. A full-service campground is available.

3. Chain of Lakes Trail
The Chain of Lakes Trail in Polk County is an urban trail that runs from Lake Alfred on its north end south to Winter Haven. Its primary appeal lies in the historic corridor through which it passes.

4. Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings Historic State Park
Visiting Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings Historic State Park near Gainesville should appeal to those interested in history, particularly those who like their history with a literary connection. Tours of the Rawlings home are available for a nominal fee during the months of October through July.

5. Gainsville-Hawthorne State Trail
Cycle, hike, or skate your way through significant historic and natural areas along the Gainesville-Hawthorne State Trail. This 16.5-mile-long, asphalt-paved trail is rated one of the top ten Florida biking trails.

6. Van Fleet and TECO Rail Trails
If you enjoy biking, skating, or walking on paved trails, the 29-mile-long Van Fleet National Trail and the connecting 6.6-mile-long TECO trail may be just what you're looking for. The Van Fleet Trail is Florida's most rural trail. You are quite likely to see wildlife along the way.

7. Visit De Soto National Memorial
De Soto National Memorial in Bradenton, a national historic site on Florida's Gulf Coast, commemorates the landing of the Hernando de Soto expedition. It's a good place to learn American and natural history as well as fish, picnic, or walk your dog.

8. Visiting St Augustine
St Augustine, oldest city in Florida, is worth visiting both for its historic structures and its recreational opportunities. Here are some suggestions for sites to visit in Old Town and on Anastasia Island.

9. Flagler’s Whitehall Mansion in Palm Beach
Whitehall was built as a magnificent winter home for railroad magnate William Flagler, who gave it to his third wife as a wedding gift. Now housing the Henry Morrison Flagler Museum, visitors can enjoy a guided tour of this opulent Beaux-Arts mansion.

10. Stilt Huts and Fishing Boats at Cedar Key Florida
Cedar Key is a great destination if you fancy a drive along the Gulf Coast of Florida. With a long history, it offers a museum, boat trips and stunning sunsets.
