    Get back to nature at Horseshoe Beach

    Looking to ditch the fast lane and really enjoy the scenery? Then downshift and pull over into Horseshoe Beach. This laid-back beach town along Florida's scenic Nature Coast is known for its residential neighborhoods, sprawling coastline, and bounty of waterfront activities. You can stroll the area's many rocky beaches, and you'll find everything from kayak rentals to fishing charters on the calm waters of the gulf. With a Horseshoe Beach vacation rental, you'll be 1 step closer to getting out of the daily grind and into the tranquil, easy rhythm of tropical living.

    A real swell time along Horseshoe Beach's coastline

    The wealth of rocky coastline is one of the area's biggest draws, and you can enjoy a day of swimming or fishing along Horseshoe Beach's ample shoreline. If you're looking for a more active day on the waves, you can try your hand at kayaking or canoeing, and a number of islands just offshore offer plenty of opportunities for exploration. Keep your eyes peeled – dolphin sightings are a regular occurrence, so you may want to bring a waterproof camera, just in case you need to share the moment with your Instagram followers.

    Who put the swamp in Horseshoe Beach?

    A few towns over in nearby Mayo, the sprawling Steinhatchee Conservation Area features a wide array of ecosystems, including cypress swamps, woodland, and sandy hammocks. Here, you can enjoy the many hiking and biking trails, and hunting and fishing are popular, too. Up for a scenic drive? Then pack a lunch and make your way through the area's lush pine forests to Cedar Key. The Cedar Key Museum State Park offers a wealth of local history exhibits, as well as ample nature trails and birdwatching opportunities.

    Summers in Horseshoe Beach are right as rain

    Most of northern Florida has a humid subtropical climate, and Horseshoe Beach is no exception. Summers are hot, with plenty of rainfall and average highs of 90ºF in June, July, and August. Spring and fall are warm and relatively dry, and winters are sunny and mild – average highs dip to 65ºF in January, while lows are well above freezing throughout the season. The hot, stormy summers are the slowest time of year in the area, and the high temperatures usually mean low prices on Horseshoe Beach vacation rentals. Just make sure you pack an umbrella.

    Horseshoe Beach – Florida's land o' lakes

    The area around Horseshoe Beach is made up of marshy wetland, and there's an inland network of lakes and streams, most of which drain into the waters of the gulf. The area's numerous nature and wildlife preserves provide protected habitat for feral hogs, white-tailed deer, and bobcats, as well as many species of local and migratory birds. The shoreline along the gulf coast is largely made up of rocky beaches, and with a waterfront Horseshoe Beach vacation rental, you can spot dolphins offshore during much of the year.
