Central Florida is more than just agriculture. That’s not to say that driving through its range of citrus groves, plethora of vegetables, and strawberry fields isn’t a form of meditation within itself. The trek to Orange City from any direction paints this picture. While you’d expect orange groves galore, orange isn't the only color in Orange City.
The St. Johns River is not only the longest river in Florida, but is one of few in the U.S. that flow north instead of south, and just so happens to hug the western portion of the city. There’s something about Florida rivers and springs that feel different than those found elsewhere. Perhaps it’s the myriad of animals and insects, surveying their inhabitance from above and below. Or even still the local greenery that frames the water, creating a green oasis with (usually) blue skies above and blue-to-turquoise water below. Florida’s rarest wildlife, like manatees, call Blue Spring, the largest on the St. Johns River and a designated state park, home for the winter months. While paddle boarding or kayaking the spring is enjoyable year-round, one should not miss the ethereal experience of floating with one of nature’s gentlest giants. If sweat-free viewing of the river is preferred, St. Johns River Nature Cruise is a must. A day of play calls for an epic meal, of which the Orange City area has no shortage of.
Cajun food reigns supreme in this part of the state, showcased in Fire on the Bayou. NOLA-inspired details are sprinkled throughout the restaurant, and the flavor of every dish truly sings. If you’d rather stay on the water, look no further than Swamp House Riverfront Grill and Happy Snapper Tiki. The local favorite sits on St. Johns River and offers Cajun-inspired fare mixed with fresh seafood. Be sure to visit on the weekend to catch some live tunes on the water!
