Live Oak Real Estate

They say that that the more north you go in Florida, the more South you are. This certainly applies to the town of Live Oak. Just west of the intersection of I-75 and I-10, Live Oak is shaded by the canopies of ancient oaks, dripping with Spanish moss. The town’s pace mimics the Suwannee and Santa Fe rivers that bound it. The Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park may best embody Live Oak’s assets, offering canoeing and hiking in the wilderness.

Situated in Suwannee County in northern Florida, Live Oak is a small, peaceful, and pretty escape for visitors who want to be away from the crowds but close to all the main attractions of the region. With a population of only 7,000 people, you won’t have to worry about waiting in long lines or fighting the crowds.

The downtown area of Live Oak is a lively place with some nice restaurants and a variety of retail shops. The wide-open green spaces within the town and in nearby communities offer plenty of opportunities to participate in a range of outdoor activities, including hiking, cycling, canoeing, and fishing.

The Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park is famous for its music concerts and festivals. This private park also offers RV, tent and primitive camping and cabins. Many enjoy the restaurant and country store. A full service stable and horse camping are available. Suwannee River State Park is a perfect place for spending time on the Suwannee River. Just inside the park you’ll find a high bluff that overlooks the spot where the Withlacoochee River joins the Suwannee on its way to the Gulf of Mexico. Fishing, hiking and picnicking are favorite activities in this park.
