Apollo Beach - Manatee Viewing Area


 On trips to Florida I have seen several different manatee viewing areas near power stations..... they like the warm water.... but this one just a few miles from Route 75 is probably the best.... nice ramps for watching and an informative display to go along with the watching area....
NOTE: Since my last visit LOTS has been added.... touch tanks for some rays... lots of picnic areas and more boardwalks for observation.... 






The power plant is the REASON the manatees cluster here.... warm water.... 

Palm Coast - Princess Place Preserve







Can't Miss Viewing the Eagles with These Tubes


Merritt Island - National Wildlife Refuge

 Beautiful wildlife..... if you chose NOT to leave your car, you could still see amazing sights.... but plenty to see if you want to walk around as well.....

Palm Coast - Fort Matanzas

A short boat ride takes you across the water to the Fort...... costumed interpreters do an excellent job describing the fort..... the park connected on the land side is quite lovely as well.....
