All Florida State parks are great, but Sebastian Inlet State REcreation area is close to home and on the sea.

We tried surfing in the area (well, my brother surfed and I floated around) and did some swimming just north of the jetty and bridge. There was plenty of parking, a cafe and this particular area charged $8/day for use although some get a Florida park pass. We will be back.

It felt like heaven. It was going to be difficult to top this moment, I thought, as I paused from my sunrise yoga stretching to take it all in. The imminent arrival of our star over the Atlantic was heralded by an ever changing canvas of fiery oranges, magenta and purples on the clouds above the horizon. Overhead and to... More

We went to the museum at the end of the state park and enjoyed learning about the local treasure that's been found.

We stayed here at the end of October. BE WARNED: THE NOSEEUMS WILL EAT YOU ALIVE AT NIGHT! The rangers said (on our way out) that baby oil or Avon Skin-So-Soft is the best repellent. We wore long-sleeved shirts, long pants, and socks when we were hanging out around the campfire at night but still ended up with a gazillion... More

The birding trail had great info signs identifying trees and plants. It was a little muddy as it had recently rained. We hiked 4 miles of bike path and never saw another person. The beach was steep and the sand was soft. It was fun to watch surfers catching the waves. Minimal crowd on an October weekday.

We'd recently heard about this park area along the Atlantic and decided to take a drive. The inlet allows water from the ocean to pour into the inter coastal, and on our visit, rushed as if rapids in the mountains. Over the course of 2+ hours we sat in the tidal area and watched the water literally rushing in, birds... More

This is actually our favorite FL state park, but the NOSEEUMS drive us crazy. The worse is a south breeze which blows the critters right at you (in the campsite). These NOSEEUMS are so BIG that you can SEE UM! Regardless, it is a great view where you will most likely see Dolphins playing in front of your campsite.
