I recently had the opportunity to visit Micanopy, a town that I drove by many times on my way to Gainesville. This small little obscure town is truly a treasure to behold. As Florida's oldest inland settlement this town was incorporated in 1858. The historic buildings and majestic ancient oaks transport visitors to another period of time. The unspoiled landscape and quaint town has been the backdrop of two popular movies, Doc Hollywood and Cross Creek, the story of Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings who's farm home is now a State Park nearby.
