By now you know that we’re head over heals in love with Florida (#LoveFL).  St Augustine caught us with its charm and history.  The Everglades stole our hearts with the gators and one-of-kind landscape.  Rainbow Springs left us speechless with its crystal clear water and endless fun.  St Pete Beach and Fort De Soto are just icing on that cake
