If you're planning a vacation to Florida or if you're looking for some great places to live, you might want to consider the following small towns.

The website Planet Ware has a list of the best small towns in the state. Here's what some of them are.

1. Safety Harbor, FL. The population here is about 18,000 and offers plenty of things to see and do.

"Located close to Tampa, Safety Harbor is full of small-town charm while still being close to anything you might need from a larger city. As its name implies, this is a safe and lovely spot to spend a few days or more," the Planet Ware website says.

2. Vero Beach, FL. The population here is roughly 17,000 and has been labeled "The Best Small Town In Florida," according to Planet Ware.

"Vero Beach, an elegant city located along Florida's Atlantic Coast, is a haven for golf, water sports, and fishing. Peaceful beaches, museums, nature tours, and a range of hotels make Vero Beach a terrific vacation destination and an important part of the region known as the Treasure Coast," the Visit Florida website says.

3. Venice, FL. The population here is a little over 20,000 and is known as the Shark Tooth Capital of the World.

The Visit Florida website says, "Venice, just south of Sarasota along Florida’s white-sanded Gulf Coast, offers 14 miles of beaches, from Casey Key to Manasota Key, and plenty of recreational opportunities, including swimming, sunbathing, fishing, and boating."

4. Apalachicola, FL. The population in this quaint town is a little over 2,500.

"A charming fishing town, maybe a little more Cape Cod than Deep South, Apalachicola offers terrific seafood, lovely waterfront parks, enchanting inns, and the opportunity to glimpse the Florida Panhandle's timber and fishing history from ground level," the Visit Florida website says.

5. Captiva, FL. This island town has some amazing resorts, beaches, spas, and a ton of things to do.

"Located about 30 miles off the coast of Fort Myers, Sanibel and Captiva Island, Florida is the perfect getaway vacation destination. Whether it’s a family vacation, romantic adventure, or an escape to the beautiful beaches, there’s no other place to escape to than Sanibel and Captiva Islands," their website says.

Those are five charming small towns that are considered a must-visit in the state of Florida.
