A Taste of the Good Life

Eat, drink and be merry in North Florida, where communities with unique dining options are never far away. The delicious cuisines from restaurants in Gainesville spill over into North Florida cities like Lake Butler and Lake City. Try out Florida’s Oldest Dining Car in Palatka or enjoy fajitas in Lake Butler. Looking for your local watering hole? Several friendly breweries are also in the North Florida region. And don’t forget — major cities like Tallahassee, Jacksonville and Gainesville are typically less than an hour away with their robust restaurant scenes.
