Oldest library building in Florida. Has a sword collection that goes back to crusades. Librarian played old "phonograph". Lovely light busy place.

This is an excellent place to take the family to get into the Christmas spirit. Beautiful light displays surround sparkling Lake DeFuniak. You may walk, drive your car or take a horse drawn carriage around the magical lights. This experience begins on Thanksgiving and ends January 1st. A must every year for our family.

Although the trail alongside the lake was mostly under water, we did enjoy walking around and appreciating the architecture of the area. The homes were immaculately kept and the ducks and geese were entertaining.

Beautiful homes of distinction. In the Christmas time they light up the entire area. Lovely drive. We walk it last time was a long walk.

It is a quaint town full of friendly smiles and warm greetings. The historic district is gorgeous but the perfectly round lake, amphitheater, museum, train display and fountain just add to the mystique. It is worth the drive even if it is off the eaten path.

A nice one mile walk around beautiful Lake DeFuniak will introduce you to this picturesque Historic Chautauqua town in northwest Florida. There are several historic markers at the Library and the Chautauqua Hall of Brotherhood that will give you the background details to help you enjoy this unique 130 year old town.

While visiting the area, friends recommended going to the Christmas Lights display. Without a doubt, the best we've seen throughout several states! Well worth the walk or drive around the lake. Many different lights and themes along the mile-plus drive.

We were told about the Christmas lights so we made a special trip to check them out. We're glad we did. It was well worth the trip. You can stay in you car and go around the lake as many times as you want for $3.00/per person. There had to be hundreds of trees decorated with thousands of lights. The... More
