Get to know Sanford, located where the St. Johns River meets the southern shore of Lake Monroe, but always more forward

Where the St. Johns River meets the southern shore of Lake Monroe, Sanford mixes old Central Florida charm with the vibrancy of a city very much on the move. Their historic downtown has exploded of late with a wealth of creative dining and drinking options, as well as art, music and culture. From the marina to the quaint commercial district to the leafy residential areas, Sanford’s renaissance is no longer just a fiercely guarded secret among locals.
Black Bear

Wilderness Area

5301 Michigan Ave., Sanford

Covering approximately 1,600 acres of northwest Seminole County, the wilderness area features wetland habitat and hosts wildlife like the swallow-tailed kite, white-tailed deer, and, of course, the black bear. A loop trail rambles along the river with gorgeous natural views aplenty.

Goldsboro Museum

1211 W. 13th St., Sanford

In 1891, Goldsboro became the second all-Black incorporated township within the United States, founded by William Clark (brother of Joe Clark, one of the founders of Eatonville, the first incorporated all-Black township in the United States, 20 miles away). In 1911 Goldsboro was cheated of its charter in a shameful moment of history, but in 2009, the Goldsboro West Side Community Historical Association joined together to preserve and celebrate the region’s African American roots. The facility on 13th Street, aka Historic Goldsboro Boulevard, hosts art, artifacts and historical archives, along with an organic garden.
