This Charming Florida Town Is Picture Perfect For An Autumn Day Trip
A lot of people think Florida doesn’t have fall foliage, but that’s not really true. In areas of North Florida especially, you can catch a spectacular show of changing leaves, but maybe a little later in the season than other parts of the country.
For example, we would like to welcome you to this tiny town in Northwest Florida. Chipley is a small town of around 3,500 people in Washington County.
This historic town gets its name from the railroad pioneer William Dudley Chipley, and you can see many references to the town's past when you stroll through its quaint downtown.
Many people visit Chipley to catch a glimpse of Florida's tallest waterfall at Falling Waters State Park. The flow of the waterfall changes with the seasons, so you might want to call the park before you visit.
A really unique local attraction is the Seacrest Wolf Preserve, where passionate animal lovers have created both a loving home for displaced wolves and an effective way to educate the public on their plight.
There's another reason you should pay a visit to this tiny town that isn't as well known as the others. Chipley is actually a great place to view stunning fall foliage.
Looking at these photos taken around Blue Lake, you would never guess such vibrant fall colors were captured in Florida.
Whether you come for the natural attractions or the colorful display of the changing leaves, we think you will enjoy a peaceful escape to this charming small town.
