Begin your day in charming historic downtown Sopchoppy, FL - home of the famous SOPCHOPPY WORM GRUNTIN’ FESTIVAL! Stroll along for a few blocks on this highly popular walking tour with Green Guide Friend, Richard Harden through the streets of this small town that reminds visitors of Mayberry. Richard knows Sopchoppy. He grew up in these parts and his family roots go way back. Richard will recount some personal anecdotes while he points out historic buildings and bits of history that make Sopchoppy so charming. Your morning tour departs at 10:00 a.m. from the newly restored train depot, the only remaining depot on the old G,F&A Railway.

Hodge) along the banks of the Sopchoppy River while you wait for the second part of your tour to begin.
