DescriptionScenic riverbanks, brackish creeks, cypress ponds, hardwood hammocks and shallow bays accent the rolling terrain surrounding Brooksville. The founding of Brooksville predates the Civil War, and many of its residential streets are lined with Victorian antebellum homes. Murals on downtown buildings depict historic events.
Winding through Lake Townsen Regional Park, 28011 Lake Lindsey Rd., and the nearby countryside are miles of hiking, biking and horseback riding trails, including those of nearby Withlacoochee State Forest; phone (352) 754-4031.
