Do you feel like taking a break from all the everyday chores and just relax for a bit? Well, if you get an RV rental in Williston, Florida, you’ll find yourself in the midst of an irregular mosaic of green and gold, in a small city full of charm. You’ll also be fairly close to the city of Gainesville with its thriving music scene and Ocala, filled to the brim with art and culture, all while being surrounded by gorgeous vistas in the warm, lovely sun. The cozy town of Bronson is located a little closer to your travel trailer rental in Williston, as is the charming town of Archer.
For some of that relaxation, the fantastic Goethe National Forest is located nearby your camper rental in Williston, and Ocala National Forest, full of recreation opportunities, isn’t hard to reach either. In case you brought your bathing suit - which is strongly recommended - a visit to either the Gulf of Mexico or the Atlantic Ocean would be a great day out. You won’t have to struggle to get around either, seeing as US Route 27 and 41 conveniently cross over right where you’ve parked your RV rental in Williston.
If you want to hike through open plains that might make you think you’ve ended up in the Wild West but still enjoy the Florida sun, give Paynes Prairie Preserve State Park a visit. Here, wild horses and bison are sharing the landscape with alligators, deer, and hundreds of different kinds of birds, making this park a little paradise for the avid birdwatcher. If you want to focus on other kinds of animals, there’s fishing and also canoeing on Lake Wauberg. All this, including an observation tower, is easily reachable with your RV trailer rental from Williston.
If it so happens that you haven’t had nearly enough of watery fun yet, a little trip to Waccasassa Bay Preserve State Park might be just the thing for you. The waters in this park are full of both fresh and saltwater fish and you can go paddling in the salt marsh and perhaps spot a manatee. Would you rather see an otter, a dolphin, or a turtle? No problem, they are around too. On dry land, there are raccoons, bald eagles, and the occasional black bear - don’t leave your camera in the Williston RV rental.
Another versatile area easy to get to with your luxury RV rental from Williston is Devil’s Hammock Wildlife Management Area, where you can hike and bike through hardwood and bottomland forest, depression marsh, and various kinds of swamps. If you’re out of luck in the fishing department, you can always try hunting some small game, feral hogs, or wild turkey. You might also be able to spot an alligator or a hairy woodpecker before you sit down and enjoy your picnic.
There are only a few places to park your motorhome rental in Williston and the surrounding area, but in return, you won’t even have to leave the city: Williston Crossings RV Resort is a 55+ park located within the city borders and has full hookups as well as shower and laundry facilities. Here you can get some exercise in the pool or the fitness center and then relax by the fire pit or have a nice game of shuffleboard. This is a gated area too, so you won’t have to worry about any ‘gator encounters.
A short drive away you’ll find Goethe Trailhead Ranch Campground, located in a beautiful area with lots of trails for hiking and biking. At this park, you’ll get full hookups and it is very horse-friendly, so if you’re an equestrian enthusiast, this is the place for you. If not, you can still relax and enjoy the swimming pool, and if you can’t find what you’re looking for in the on-site grocery store, there are plenty of stores in Williston and that goes for gas stations too.
Every year Williston hosts the Central Florida Peanut Festival, which is exactly what it sounds like: a whole day filled with nuttin’ but fun. There are over 100 booths on display and a variety of peanut-rich foods to try, as well as many peanut-y products to take home. There are contests and a petting zoo for the kids, and if peanuts aren’t one of your favorite foods, there are lots of restaurants in Williston where you can get fast food or sit down and have a lovely meal, whether you prefer American, Japanese or Mexican cuisine.
At Two Tail Ranch, you can see zebras, birds, and turtles, but the main residents at this lovely establishment are elephants. Here you can see the large animals up close and take the tour and learn all about them: you’ll even be able to ride and feed the elephants, perfect if you have some leftover peanuts in your pockets. There are also a museum and a gift shop, so not only will you be an expert on elephants when you leave, you’ll have presents for your loved ones back home too.
If you haven’t learned enough yet, at Kirby Family Farm, you can visit the museum with its exhibitions on industry, science, and agriculture. The farm’s main goal is to use the history of the area to educate children and prepare them for the future, but people of any age can have a nice, educational experience here. There are also themed events, for Christmas, Halloween, and Easter, among others. If you don’t want to miss out on all the fun, go search for an RV in Williston right now, and don’t forget your alligator-safe boots.
