If you area planning a spring break getaway, Florida Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam wants you to consider taking a trip to one of the state’s natural areas before booking your travel arrangements.
In a press release issued Monday, Putnam’s office said Florida offers world-renowned forests, lakes, beaches, rivers, springs, trails and parks, adding that a vacation experience should also include adventures off the beaten path.
“Florida’s natural attractions are second to none, and visitors and residents alike can explore natural Florida this Spring Break,” Putnam said in a statement released by his office.
The Florida Forest Service manages more than 1 million acres of public forest land, the office said.
