An Ever Expanding Region of Community, Nature and Industry

Nestled between two rivers, the Ochlockonee on the east and the Apalachicola on the west, Liberty County is located between Florida’s capital city of Tallahassee and the coastal community of Panama City. In planning for its future, this community actively works in public/private partnership with local and regional organizations. The result is a region whose natural assets – vast areas of forest, rivers and lakes – are complemented by a growing array of business assets.

Although it maintains a relatively low profile, Liberty County offers a surprising and uniquely advantageous blend of two worlds – a sprawling, natural wonderland in the heart of the Apalachicola National Forest that is just minutes away from some of Florida’s most sought-after high technology resources.

Wise businesses are discovering ways to leverage funding and resources with such top research institutions as Florida State University, Florida A&M University and the University of Florida. Liberty County, less than an hour’s drive from two of Florida’s premier universities, makes it easy to access leading-edge technologies that have gained worldwide attention.
