Stretching from the Gulf of Mexico to the State of Georgia, Jefferson County is called Florida’s Keystone County.
Accessible by the Florida-Georgia Parkway, Interstate 10 and other major roads, Monticello is a small, quiet and relaxing community.
Pristine rivers and streams, hunting and fishing preserves, vast woodlands and plantations offer a spectacular and unique identity to Jefferson County. Canoeing, kayaking, bird-watching and horseback riding are popular pastimes. Jefferson County is one of the only counties remaining in Florida with NO stoplights. At the same time, exciting activities play an important community role. The Watermelon Festival is in its 70th year – running strong. The historic Monticello Opera House hosts a yearlong parade of plays and musical events in the 1890 theater.
Jefferson County is served by charming bed and breakfast inns, country cabins and more modern hotels and motels. Camping sites and RV parks are also available. Numerous restaurants with the “hometown atmosphere” are ready to serve. We welcome you in a special “southern” way. Come visit us! Relax, prop your feet up and sit a spell.
