Make yourself at home in our Holiday Inn Express® hotels in Brooksville, Florida. In no time you'll be watching the underwater acrobatics of a Florida-style mermaid and admiring the genteel homes and mansions of this sleepy historic town.
Our Brooksville hotels are a short drive from Florida's Nature Coast, where lush marshland and estuaries meet the Gulf of Mexico. Visit the mermaids at kitschy Weeki Wachee Springs State Park, one of Florida's oldest roadside attractions. The bathing beauties in tightly tailored mermaids' tails have been performing underwater ballets in a deep freshwater spring here since the 1940s. Ingenious air tubes keep the ladies breathing freely. Take to the gentle waters of Weeki Watchee Springs by kayak or return inland to hit the trails of Withlacoochee State Forest. Bald cypress and southern magnolia trees growing along the Withlacoochee River provide homes for woodpeckers hammering overhead and turkeys rushing among the shrubs.
Our hotels in Brooksville are close to Main Street, where vendors sell handmade crafts at the monthly market and farmer's display fresh produce on Saturdays. Small shops and galleries around town sell local art, antiques and Native American jewelry. Classic American diners, welcoming restaurants and roadside stands dish up spicy chili, hearty pasta and foot-long hot dogs.
Book our Holiday Inn Express hotels in Brooksville to explore the historic town center. Gleaming white Queen Anne-style and colonial revival homes from the early 1900s hide behind weeping willows and live oak trees. Our hotels in Brooksville are near the Hernando Historical Museum, in the gabled May Stringer house built in the late 1800s. Stop into the City Hall Art Gallery, where changing exhibitions of paintings and photos by local artists depict pastoral Floridian scenes of swamps, beaches and wildlife.
