Monticello Florida Bed and Breakfasts Inns are located in North West Florida. Monticello is just 23 miles east of Florida’s capital city of Tallahassee, and is fast becoming one of that city’s favorite “bedroom communities”. Monticello is approximately mid-way between Jacksonville, Florida's northern-most Atlantic port and Pensacola, one of her largest Gulf ports.
Historically, the City of Monticello has no equal in Northern Florida. Nestled within the tree lined streets of Monticello are many antebellum homes which provide a unique look and feel to the city. During the depression of the 1930s, many of the residents of Monticello could not afford to build new homes and the houses were renovated or restored. Today, these homes offer tourists a rare glimpse of the original architectural styles, which prevailed in the south prior to the civil war.
The city of Monticello was named after the county’s namesake, Thomas Jefferson. Monticello has an historic 19th century opera house that still features musical performances and theatre productions. Those curious about the supernatural are advised to make a stop in this town, named the "Most Haunted Small Town in the U.S." by ABC-TV.
You know the quiet, small-town life you see on TV and in movies? You can find it in real life, too. Spend a few days eating in Monticello's cafes and strolling its tree-lined streets and find out what you've been missing. It’s small-town downtown life is as it was. There is oak-lined courthouse squares, gazebos and band shells, one-chair barber-shops and cemeteries. The town café, gossip for breakfast and meatloaf for lunch. Old-time movie theaters, with one screen and a real marquee and popcorn with genuine butter.
Monticello rests easily in the shadow of the state capital, sufficiently close for a quick side trip, sufficiently distant to enjoy a more tranquil existence. A courthouse square dominates in the center of this compact town, surrounded by family-owned cafés and shops, and spectacular live oak canopies, draped with Spanish moss.
