Soak up some 19th-century charm in the coastal wilderness

About an hour north of Tampa, charming Brooksville is the perfect base for exploring the wilderness of the Gulf coast. Full of historic homes dotting quaint brick streets, the town is home to regular festivals and events, and more than enough small town charm to go around. A Brooksville vacation rental also puts you in a great position for experiencing all the outdoor activities the area has to offer, whether it's horseback riding, water sports, or golf. Between the pristine Gulf coast beaches and old-school Florida kitsch like live mermaid shows, you can't go wrong.

Experience the great outdoors, Florida style

If you've come in search of fresh air, you're in luck. Whether it's sea breezes at the beach while you're working on your tan, or the invigorating nature walks of Chassahowitzka Wildlife Reserve, there's plenty of chance to enjoy the warm Florida sunshine. Head to Withlacoochee State Forest, Withlacoochee Trail State Park, or any of the city parks for some quality walking, hiking, canoeing, and kayaking. You'll also find enough hunting, fishing, horseback riding, and golf in the area to keep you busy for days. In town, be sure to hit up the local festivals, antique car shows, and regular live music events.

Expect the unexpected, from mermaids to ghosts

It doesn't get much quirkier than Weeki Wachee Springs State Park, where you can interact with wildlife, kayak, visit a water park, and watch a live mermaid show all in one place. For more family-friendly fun, head to Boyett's Grove and Citrus Attraction for everything from fruit picking to a petting zoo. The Hernando Heritage Museum hosts regular Civil War reenactments and ghost tours. Chassahowitzka Wildlife Reserve will put you up close with some manatees, while Uptown Art Gallery will give you your culture fix.

Take a walk on the sunny side of the street

There's no fear of winter here. Temperatures year round range from the 70s to the 90s, with the hot and steamy peak of summer coming between May and October. Winters are still plenty warm and pleasant, but nighttime temps can dip down into the 50s in January and February, so pack a sweater or jacket. If you're booking a Brooksville vacation rental between June and September, plan on some relaxing afternoon naps, as thunderstorms tend to roll through late each day. Hurricanes aren't uncommon in the area, so check the forecast before you head out.

Birds of a feather flock together (with manatees, too!)

The saltwater marshes and estuaries of the Chassahowitzka Wildlife Reserve are home to over 250 species of birds, more than 50 species of amphibians and reptiles, and at least 25 types of mammals, including endangered manatees. The rare bald eagle has also been spotted in the area. The Withlacoochee State Forest is made up of several varieties of pine, cypress, maple, oak, and magnolia trees, plus some stunning wildflower displays each spring. The Gulf coast is known for its pristine sandy beaches, crashing waves, and killer sunset views.
