DeSoto, done to perfection.

You don’t earn the title of Florida’s Best Hometown Dining unless you know a thing or two about recipes. And here in DeSoto County, that includes the recipe for the perfect travel package.

It starts with the right ingredients: Like variety the whole family will love, from fun under the sun - boating, swimming, canoeing, camping, golfing - to the city delights of treasure hunting in Florida’s Best Antiquing Town, feasting your eyes on our historic architecture and yes, simply feasting on our award-winning dining.

Come for a day, a week, or a week-end. Stay in a historic inn, or a charming b&b. Take home a trophy - a century-old Tiffany vase, perhaps, or a two-thousand-year-old shark tooth from our fossil-rich river beds. Maybe you’d enjoy Florida’s oldest rodeo, or our exotic animal refuge. Of one thing you can be sure: Life is always sunny side up, here in a natural paradise and a friendly city steeped in history and charm.

So take a look over our menu of options to find the just-right blend of fun and relaxation, and always unbeatable hospitality, that’s exactly to your taste.
