The city, originally called “Orange,” was renamed in 1882 for railroad businessman and Florida state senator, William Dudley Chipley. It is home to The South 3rd Street Historic District, which is registered with the U.S. Historic District.
The Florida Caverns are the only above ground cavern in all of Florida accessible to tourists - and for the only cave in Florida, they are absolutely amazing. The park itself is massive and contains caves, beautifully diverse trails, and even a small yet deep spring that is available to swim in.
