Weirdest Places in Florida

May 06, 2021

What are some fun roadside attractions in Florida?

Florida is a really, really big state, and with really big states come plenty of highways and roads. And with plenty of those, well, you end up with a prime location for fun and unique roadside attractions and oddities. Some of the best ones in Florida are such weird little spots as the Skunk Ape Research Headquarters, where the Florida-man equivalent to the Bigfoot legends of days past is, well, looked into. Our state also has a dinosaur-themed park in a literal swamp, a pirate museum, and even Spook Hill, a strange and creepy place where sometimes gravity seems to forget to do its job. Florida is a fun state with plenty to appreciate, and this article goes into a little more depth about some other strange and interesting roadside attractions. 

Where are the most unique places in Florida?

We’ve got plenty of super unique places that are just so distinctly Florida. Dry Tortuga National Park is, for some reason, one of the most under-visited and overlooked parks in the entire country. It’s beautiful, and you will truly never find anywhere else like it. The Florida Keys are an obvious example of the incredible natural beauty our state holds, too, and being there is like being in paradise. We’ve also got cute, quirky little places, too, like the tiniest post office in the world, in Ochopee, and the world’s tiniest police station, in Carrabelle, and mermaids swim the waters of Weeki Wachi Springs State Park. No matter where you turn, you’re bound to find something enchanting about Florida. 

What are some of the best one-of-a-kind places in Florida?

While the “best” certainly is subjective, we’ve got a few examples of our favorite uniquely Florida places to hang out. Florida is a big state with plenty to do, even for those who prefer to be off the beaten path and away from the crowds. Take a dip at Manatee Springs, where you can observe actual manatees in all their natural splendor, or maybe go scuba diving at the Devil’s Den, in Williston. In Key Largo, you’ll find a super-unique underwater hotel, where you can sleep at the bottom of the sea. Sure, you could opt for the amusement parks or the Keys, but why do that when you can beat the throngs of tourists and see some truly unique things?
