Welcome to Micanopy (Mick-ah-NO-pee) Florida


Micanopy is a charming slice of small town Florida at it's best.  

Our vibrant historic district is made up of  38 buildings that are on the National Register of Historic Places. We have a great selection of small, independently owned shops, galleries and cafes and we're right in the heart of rural north central Florida.

Here's what people are saying about us:

“One of the 12 Cutest Small Towns in America.”
—The Huffington Post

“The town, about 15 minutes south of Gainesville off Interstate 75, is a Norman Rockwell-worthy Southern village that's ground zero for antiques and porch swings.” —Orlando Sentinel

Its turn-of-the-century buildings, as well as cracker-style cottages and gargantuan live oaks have attracted Hollywood filmmakers looking for a ready-made Southern setting.” —Southern Living

“For a town of one square mile, Micanopy has quite a past. Twelve miles south of Gainesville, it’s the oldest inland settlement in Florida. Today, about 600 people live here. Virtually every building was on the National Historic Register.” —Travel + Leisure

"Micanopy, a one-boulevard town of aged brick and log buildings, a place so steeped in old-style charm it’s hard to stand on the main drag without a faint anxiety that at any minute movie studio security guards are going to roust you off the set."—The New York Times

“Any antiques aficionado worth their weight in collectibles has made the pilgrimage to Micanopy’s shop-heavy Cholokka Boulevard. The scene is also heavy on greenery, making it a pleasant spot to while away an afternoon beneath the mossy oaks and shop.” —Atlanta Journal Constitution
