The Florida city of Perry is known as the “Tree Capital of the South” and is the annual home of the Florida Forest Festival. Included in this festival that is held on the fourth day in October is what the city calls the World’s Largest Free Fish Fry. In terms of location, Perry Florida can be found just inland along the state’s Nature Coast. This portion of the coastline is in the northwest of Florida where the state curves along Apalachee Bay and starts to form the Panhandle Region.
Popular activities in the general Perry area include fresh and saltwater fishing, hunting, bird watching, boating, and nature hiking. Thanks to the freshwater springs near Perry, visitors can also look to enjoy such activities as swimming, snorkeling and diving. Or book a manatee-watching boat tour. When a break from such activities is in order, Perry visitors can take to the historic downtown district, where strolling, shopping and checking out the restored steam locomotive-era train station are popular pursuits.
