Visit a train station turned into a museum at Olustee Depot near Lake City. The building has stayed in pristine condition and is nestled in the woods under Spanish moss trees in the Osceola National Forest. This museum has all things locomotive that the kids will love and has hands-on activity stations where you can press buttons to hear the sounds of the county’s wilderness. The exhibit tells the tale of the building’s history of serving as a medical station for wounded soldiers during the Battle of Olustee. Before that, the station was an iconic destination in the South that exported goods and helped boost the economy. Afterward, lounge on its patio next to the train tracks and wait for the train to pull up.
