Waldo, Florida: Big Rocking Chair

Big, but not giant. All-wood construction. Seems scaled to accommodate climbers and sitters for novelty photos.

Sid Martin Hwy., Waldo, FL
North of town about 1.5 miles. On the west side of US 301/Sid Martin Hwy, at the corner of NE 177th Place, outside of the Waldo Farmer and Flea Market.

Waldo Flea Market chair.

Big Rocking Chair

This big rocking chair sits right outside the flea market and is one of the few that I have seen that allow climbing at your own risk. There is plenty of parking, and it does not require walking.

At the Waldo Flea Market. Awesome!

[Kristin, 08/09/2019]

Though it doesn't actually rock, this chair minimally meets our "If you fell off you'd get hurt" qualification for roadside chair landmark inclusion.

Giant Rocking Chair

There is a Jolly Green Giant-size rocking chair on the right of US 301 as you head south. It sits at Waldo's Flea and Farmer's Market.
