What a find! We very much enjoyed this gem tucked away in Palmetto. The shell mounds and trails are a fun way to get a little history lesson. Helpful and friendly volunteer at the welcome center. Drive out to the end of the road and see the view of the river and the Skyway bridge. Have Fun!!
If you need to get outside, Emerson Point is the place to go. They offer so many different experiences.

There are a few places that are handicap accessible. There are beautiful boardwalks, and great spots on the beach for sunsets... 更多
