Mayo is the county seat and happens to be the largest town in Lafayette County. Mayo is a sleepy Southern town where Spanish moss dangles from old oaks and a stately old courthouse, built in 1908, sits at the center of town.
As in other rural counties, you’ll have to dig a little deeper to find activities appealing to travelers, but natural springs, riding trails, and down-home festivals are there if you look. There are nearly a dozen Blue Springs in Florida, but probably none look more like an old-fashioned swimmin’ hole than this. Tree limbs droop into the water, spare clothes hang from branches, and laughter fills the hollow that creates the spring. Today people come to this stretch of the river because a swimming area has been created along its banks and a floating dock provides convenient mooring for jet skis, pontoon boats, and ski boats.
