Welcome to Florida on Foot!
Hi there, I am Jen a West Virginia native currently living in Tampa, Florida! I enjoy staying active and spending time outdoors. I love traveling and one of my personal goals is to visit all 50 states! Some of my other interests include reading, attending concerts, and cheering on the Tampa Bay Lightning.
When I first moved to Florida when I had free time to spend outside I frequented the nearby beaches. While I love a relaxing day at the beach, I found myself missing hiking and being amongst the mountains.
As we all know, 2020 was the year of canceled vacations and staying at home, so I decided to make the most of it. I finally realized even if we don’t have mountains, with 175 state parks, trails, and historic sites there is so many incredible places I was missing out on.
I started visiting some of the Florida State Parks near Tampa and I realized how much they had to offer. That is when the idea of Florida on Foot was born. I want to share my love of the outdoors and inspire others to start visiting some of the lesser known attractions of Florida.
Florida is such a diverse state with so much to offer. This blog will primarily focus on sharing recaps of local, state, and national parks in Florida. In addition I will feature other hidden gems you don’t want to miss. I also hope to provide useful tips under the resource section to help you get the most out of your next adventure in the Sunshine State!
Thank you so much for being here, now let’s explore outdoors and discover Florida parks!
