Summer days are going by fast, and that's not necessarily a bad thing in the Sunshine State. Soon the heat will subside and it'll be perfect for a full day of fun in the sun. If you're looking for places with plenty of trees and views in Florida to hang a hammock at, this list will definitely take you there.

Admittedly, not everywhere is great for hammocks. Trees have to be just the right length away or else you're doomed to sit in a swing that's either too close or far; and certainly uncomfortable. Thankfully this state is full of areas with trees planted just the perfect distance away for all your swingin' needs. 

Whether you're on the hunt for blue water views or even night sky views, there's something on this list for wherever your adventurous heart may wish to take you. 

So pack the hammock and get ready to let the Florida breeze sway you to sleep at these 6 gorgeous spots.
