Tourist Development Council

The Tourist Development Council (TDC) is the tourism marketing organization for Hamilton County.  The TDC assists in all areas related to tourism including general information, festivals, and event promotion.  There is an emphasis on nature and heritage tourism due to the abundance of rivers and native woodlands.  Helpful information on local hotels, alternative lodging, and restaurants is readily available.

Members of the TDC greet tourists each Friday at the I75 Florida Welcome Center to provide helpful information on Hamilton County’s natural beauty and attractions.  The Suwannee, Withlacoochee, and Alapaha Rivers are located in the county and are renowned for boating, canoeing, kayaking, fishing and swimming.  The natural setting also provides a beautiful backdrop for hiking, birdwatching, camping, and horseback riding.

The Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park is in historical White Springs on the banks of the Suwannee River.  The park hosts the oldest folk festival in the United States and numerous other activities throughout the year.  The Wild Azalea Festival and Wild Blackberry Festival, along with the Hamilton County Championship Rodeo, are annual events for all ages.

Hamilton County invites the entire family to visit and stay a while. Welcome to Florida’s Front Porch!
