    Cool State park but bring a bike cuz it's huge otherwise you'll drive to each area. Check out the fort. Nothing crazy but free.

    Awesome, Great place for a leisurely walk just make sure to slap on some sunscreen and take a drink. Sometime there's dolphins and manatees at the end of the pier.

    Have a four legged furry friend? Check out their dog beach! It is awesome. But please, pick up after your dogs and don't throw it in the water. People and dogs are swimming plus it's nasty & rude!

    Site 205 is great! Shaded, close to bathrooms, waterfront. Great sunset view and have seen lots of wildlife-- including dolphins swimming around right in our temp "backyard" :)

    This spot is a great place to kayak around... shallow enough to get out and yet deep enough to see dolphins frolicking.

    This beach is perfect for a family-fun day. Not only is the water super clean, the large lagoon doesn’t get above three feet deep, making a “natural kiddie pool.”
