Check out the 6 natural wonders you’ll have to add to your list next time you visit the Sunshine State.

1. Amelia Island

Located on the coastline in northeast Florida, Amelia Island is a destination that is easy to reach but hard to forget. This beloved, timeless island continuously entertains visitors and residents with its beautiful beaches, abundant native wildlife, pristine nature, historic district, enthusiastic festivals and one-of-a-kind shopping and dining experience. Being the only place in the USA that has been under the rule of eight different flags: French, British, Patriots, Green Cross, Mexican Revolutionary, Confederacy and USA, Amelia Island is a magnificent address with unique cultural influences.

2. Four Creeks State Forest

This 13,147-acre protected area located just west of the new community Tributary serves a wide range of natural features and recreation activities. Four Creeks State Forest is one of few state-protected wildlife sanctuaries where untouched wild animals such as white-tailed deer, wild turkey, gopher tortoise and numerous songbirds reside. Visitors and future residents neighboring the lush protected park will enjoy various recreational activities including hiking, hunting, fishing, canoeing, kayaking, bicycling and horse riding.

3. The Catty Shack Ranch Wildlife Sanctuary

Serving Duval, St. Johns, Clay, Nassau, and Baker counties, The Catty Shack Ranch Wildlife Sanctuary is a top destination for many national and international visitors.
