Fresh Slices of Old Florida

Many people don't know what old Florida was like so I want to show you all that's historic, beautiful, retro, kitschy and untamed. Much of it has changed now, but you can still be a part of the adventure if you look in the right places. I love writing about Florida and submissions are always welcomed.

Enjoy your stay in the F.L.A.

Originally named “Espiritu Santos Springs” by Hernando de Soto, the springs in Safety Harbor were at one time known as “Green Springs” for the crippled farmer Jesse Green, who was able to “throw away his crutches and resume plowing his fields” after a year spent taking the waters.
