I have been a resident of Fort White all my life (26 years). I like Fort White because it is a very family friendly town. I would like to see more growth, it is a very small town. More restaurants and shopping centers would be nice!
Small country town. Great elementary and high school. Great place for your children to grow up. Must travel 15-20 minutes for nearness grocery stores, but Family Dollar and Dollar General are located in town. Very peaceful!
