Welcome to Florida on Foot!
Hi there, I am Jen a West Virginia native who relocated to Tampa, Florida in 2016! I’ve always enjoyed spending time outdoors and had a love for travel. A few items that are now on my travel bucket list include visiting all 50 states, all the Florida State Parks, and all the National Parks in the United States.
When I first moved to Florida if 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 immersed in nature on a trail.
As we all know, 2020 was the year of canceled vacations and staying at home, so I decided to make the most of where I lived. I finally realized even if we don’t have mountains, with 175 state parks, trails, and historic sites there was so many incredible places I was missing out on. I decided to start exploring.
First, I visited some of the Florida State Parks near Tampa and I quickly realized how much they had to offer. That is when the idea of Florida on Foot was born. I officially launched my blog in November 2021 to share my love of the outdoors and inspire others.
Florida is such a diverse state with so much to offer! My blog will primarily focus on sharing ideas for outdoor adventures in the state of Florida. I include a lot of park recaps for local, state, and national parks. In addition to my Florida content, I have a beyond Florida section on my website to share my travels outside the state. My resource section provides useful tips for exploring the outdoors.
I hope my blog helps to inspire your next adventure in the Sunshine State! If you want to stay up to date with all things Florida on Foot, be sure to sign up for my e-mail list below. Thank you so much for being here, now let’s explore outdoors and discover Florida parks!
