"Peaceful River" Arcadia by richiecdisc

Arcadia Travel Guide: 4 reviews and 10 photos

Though an interesting town to see in stark contrast to more mainstream cities like Miami and Ft. Lauderdale, Arcadia is primarily visited as a jumping off point for excursions on the Peace River. It has a small town feel, but one still catering to tourists with numerous outfitters set up to make your travels go more smoothly. Come and escape the masses, come and see the real Florida.

    Richie, an oldie but a goodie!! Looks like two very fit paddlers from what I could see. A short but sweet page on the joys of just getting away from it all for a couple of days! Humm, makes me want to dig my canoe out as soon as the snow disappears!

    Great camping story. Evokes memories of a wild Florida that has mostly vanished. Just think the whole state used to be like this.
