About The City of DeFuniak Springs: Located in Northwest Florida’s Gulf Coast, one hundred miles east of Tallahassee, the City of DeFuniak Springs is the county seat of Walton County. We are the gateway to the beaches of the Emerald Coast and home to Lake DeFuniak, one of only two spring-fed lakes in the world that is almost perfectly round. Founded in the 19th century as a resort for railroad travelers, and later the summer resort for the Chautauqua, the town welcomed presidents, poets, writers, and musicians to the charming community as a vacation destination. We still welcome travelers interested in Florida's rich history and culture. To find out more, visit our website at www.defuniaksprings.net or call (850) 892-8500.
