This is a nice place to spent an afternoon if you are an adult or senior, interested in the lovely view of the spring lake, the old architecture of the homes, and seeing a few historical spots. Pick up a visitors guide at the library,...More

Read about this place and drove a little out of the way to see the homes. There are some very nice Victorian style homes surrounding a lake with one of the oldest libraries in the US. If you like old homes it is a nice...More

The tourist bureau offers free tours of its historical lake area. Defuniak Springs features one of the only truly circular lakes in the world.

This is a unique and historical town. Circle Drive has beautiful old homes surrounding a spring fed lake that is only one of two in the world. Stop at the Little Big Store, anew old general store. Don't miss a stop at the library either.

Not much to say. Very much like most other Florida 'historical' districts. Wouldn't go out of my way to visit again.

A short one mile walk or drive around Lake DeFuniak is worth your time. From colonial houses to the play ground there is something for everyone. Take your lunch and have a quiet picnic. Save some bread from your sandwich and feed the ducks or...More

This is the place to come to see beautiful historical period homes as you drive Circle Drive or park and take a leisurely walk around Lake DeFuniak. Most of the homes are still maintained true to the early 1900s. We have a charming library, the...More
