Authentic Things To Do In Florida

At Authentic Florida, we focus on the hidden treasures of Florida Living that are reminiscent of old Florida with a focus on what’s unique and affordable today. We look for experiences that are enjoyable and create lifelong memories. We are magnets to what’s festive, fun and uniquely Florida. Since our launch, our story-telling was focused heavily on nature and we will continue to do so. However, starting in 2018, we are also consciously seeking out stories that touch on the emotional connections we all have with Florida — from nostalgic souvenirs/postcards to unique mom & pop establishments. We relish in our state’s rich history and celebrate the kitschy treasures.

The world is moving at such a fast pace we are here to remind people that there’s nothing better than unplugging and enjoying an excursion with your family and friends. In Florida, these opportunities are endless.
