 Florida Mermaid Trail

The Florida Mermaid Trail is on schedule to launch in January 2020. It includes two routes (1.1 mile and 2.2 mile) that include Main St., Liberty St., Brooksville Ave., Good Neighbor Trail, Jefferson St., Saxon Ave., Broad St., and Ft. Dade Ave. Walkers will search for 20 bronze statues mounted on buildings along the trail. We anticipate lots of selfies, Instagram posts, and #flmermaidtrail hash-tagging!

The goal is to get people walking and exploring our lovely city and hopefully coming into your business!

Walkers can use an app we are creating or a full color paper map. We have 28 business card size ad spaces available on the map. Brick and Mortar business owners are eligible to purchase ad space whether or not their building will have a mermaid. The cost is $75 and we will be printing 5000 maps. That's a cost of just 1.5¢ per map! Lee Middleton will be creating the map, so it will also be a lovely piece of art that people may choose to frame.

Spaces will be given to the first 28 brick and mortar businesses to submit their application with payment, so reserve your spot quickly! Call Natalie Kahler at (352)238-6295 if you have additional questions. Payments may be mailed to P.O. Box 1323, Brooksville, FL 34605, dropped off in person Monday - Friday 8am - 5pm to 15 N. Main Street, Brooksville, FL 34601, or you may submit your credit/debit card details in the form below.
