Housing some of the community’s oldest buildings, and a rich history of religious teachings, Florida College is now a bustling private liberal arts college that molds aspiring young professionals each every year. Formerly the Florida Bible Institute, this institution of higher education is famous for counting Pastor Billy Graham as one of their alumni back in the Bible Institute days. There is a story goes that he even found his calling to preach on that very campus, and a memorial park was erected in the same spot he decided to commit his life to teaching Christianity.
Lettuce Lake Park
Given Temple Terrace’s natural beauty and gorgeous architecture, you could imagine that the local green spaces are pretty spectacular as well. The best place to soak in the great outdoors has to be Lettuce Lake Park to the north. This sprawling 240-acre state park that was opened in 1982 is home to a number of boardwalks, hiking trails, an observation tower, and picnic areas for a little rest. The local ecosystem provides a beautiful backdrop for a date or a day off, and the park itself is so big you can come here every weekend and still see something new.
