Boyd Hill Nature Park & Lake Maggiore Environmental Education Center
You’ll have plenty to explore throughout the 245 acres of wilderness at Boyd Hill Nature Park. Flora and fauna are conserved throughout the five eco-systems that make up the park.
Fort De Soto Park
Five beautiful islands make up Fort De Soto Park. The wildlife here is second to none – pelicans bask on the shore and sea turtles hatch on the beach. As well as the miles of natural hiking trails, there’s a dedicated dog beach and lots of beautiful spots for the kids to play.
Caladesi Island State Park
We might be biased, but in our opinion, there’s no better beach in the country! This barrier island’s bright white sands will stun and captivate you. Take the boat from Honeymoon Island, look out for dolphins from the deck and be prepared to fall in love with this little piece of paradise.
Florida Botanical Gardens
Green-fingered visitors will be taking note as they amble through the pretty landscapes and beautifully designed formal gardens. The Florida Botanical Gardens has everything from a perfectly clipped rose garden to resident alligators.
Enjoy nature at its best at the Sunken Gardens in downtown St Pete. Exotic plants and flowers fill the gardens while flamingos perch and butterflies flutter by as you wander along the pathways and past trickling waterfalls.
