"Many artists spend time in Steinhatchee to capture images of the Old Florida town and the surrounding wildlife. The town has many Victorian homes along the river, and it is a good walking and biking town.
Up the river from the village is Steinhatchee Falls. The falls can be visited, and is the spot where General Andrew Jackson reportedly crossed with his army in pursuit of Seminoles in the early history of Florida. It's a good spot for picnics and swimming".

We see several signs for Steinhatchee as we travel Rt 19/98, but only when we selected 'fishing villages' as another photo graphic destinations theme did we visit the town. Most notably, as we entered the town, locals and visitors abound with activity pulling their boats, getting fishing gear and preparing for day on the water. It is very much a fishing village. We did not see much activity for commercial fishing, however, I must be fair and say we did not know our way around the area.
