Florida's most picturesque city - Monticello?

Just south of the Florida/Georga border by about 7 miles, Google Map, is a small town of 2,500 called Monticello that's one-of-a-kind.  I had the chance to see it recently and was blown away by it's charm.  It's a small city in route to either the 10 West (that goes from coast to coast) and one of the last stops before heading into George in the panhandle of Florida.

There's not much to do in this small town but you can swing by the 120 year old opera house called Perkins that still host shows today.  Currently they have children shows, musicals and it's even used for weddings.  And this old theater is recognized on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places.

Monticello will remind you of one of those towns you might see in the movies from the 60's looking all perfect with nice trees, cool homes and friendly people.  Being the small town that it is, there's not a lot accommodations, but there is a Super 8 and a Quality Inn.  I could see myself chilling in Monticello for a quick one day and staying the night at one of those hotels, it's cheap, around $50 to $70 for a room.
