Beyond the beach in Northwest Florida: natural attractions

Each year, thousands of tourists make a beeline for Florida Panhandle beaches, bypassing the fascinating but lightly visited natural attractions along the inland river corridor just to the north. Big mistake. In your hurry to plant your toes in the sand, you are missing out on chances to pet wolves; view one of the Southeast’s most endangered birds; photograph carnivorous plants; catch and eat enormous exotic catfish; and tour a beautifully-decorated underground cave — among other little-known draws.
