Hamilton County is located in North Central Florida, with Georgia forming its northern border. The county (often called a peninsula within a peninsula) is separated from the rest of Florida by the Withlacoochee River on the west and the beautiful Suwannee River to the east and south. In the middle of the county is the fascinating Alapaha River, called the "River of Sand," which disappears underground during certain parts of the year leaving a dry, sandy riverbed.
At the crossroads of I-75 and I-10, Hamilton County is easily accessed from Jacksonville, Gainesville or Tallahassee. If you are looking for a rural area, rich in history, and loaded with real Southern charm, Hamilton County says, "come for a visit, stay for a lifetime."
