If you like the water, The Conference & Retreat Center at Advent Christian Village has options for you. Dowling Park is located along what the Suwannee River Wilderness Trail describes as "spring country." As the river widens, numerous springs and small shoals add to its character. "On hot summer days, spring hopping is a popular pastime for paddlers and boaters who stop to enjoy a cool dip in the clear spring waters."
