    Life in DeFuniak Springs

    Take a stroll through part of America’s history in DeFuniak Springs.  With over 200 historic buildings in this little gem of a town, it boasts the most historic sites per capita of any town in Florida. Designated the “best small town in Florida” by MSN Insider, you’ll be charmed by the Victorian homes surrounding the quaint town square, awed by the beauty of Lake Defuniak, a rare naturally occurring circular lake at the heart of the town, and welcomed by the classic Southern hospitality of its residents. The South Walton beaches may only be thirty miles away, but you’ll find plenty of reasons to linger in this sweet Old Florida town.
