Lake Miccosukee

After you've stocked up on sausage and grits at Bradley's Country Store and you're on your way to Old Magnolia Road, Lake Miccosukee is a good rest stop to just stand and take in the view. From the boat landing at Reeves Landing Road at the edge of Leon County, you can see the hungry Jefferson County alligators sunbathing on the other side, and some rich autumn foliage. The lake is filled with ducks. The endangered Miccosukee Gooseberry is there for the keen observer, too.

Then, hop in the car and set your clock back to the 19th century as you bump along Old Magnolia Road until US 90. You're on the Lawton Chiles Trail.
