              Golf: The area has the highest concentration of freshwater springs on earth, with two major rivers forming the northern and western boundaries of Gilchrist County, and over 60 springs within or contiguous to the country. It's easy to see why the peace and tranquility of Gilchrist County draws people from the concrete cities.

              There are also plenty of antique shops near by! Dakota Winery is 16 miles away in Chiefland, Fl. Free wine tasking.
