The Lake City Columbia County Historical Museum gives visitors the ultime Lake City education, offering two stories of Civil War history, and historic photographs and artifacts, all housed within an authentic old-fashioned house. After learning about the city, guests can take some time to unwind at Falling Creek Falls, or the Osceola National Forest where the day can be spent boating, hiking, wildlife viewing, and practicing photography as the forest boast an abundance of dense woods and great views. Guests can also spend their free time at the Southern Oaks Golf Club, at Lake City Bowl, or Gateway Art Gallery, where those with a passion for art and creativity can take a class and draw inspiration from the facility’s extensive art collection.
One of the best part of of renting a suburban home for a Lake City vacation is the views of the Suwannee River that homes on the outskirts offer.
