A pleasant drive to see how the "other half" (more like 1%!) lives. Being so sheltered there is a good chance you'll see raccoons during the day as well as gopher tortoises.

Homes in here are amazing, we were looking for the gopher turtles which were supposed to be abundant but never saw one there. They can be seen at other places on the island as well as burrowing owls.

The dilapidated frame of an old vacation home, abandoned in the early 1900s, sits in the midst of a secluded private housing development. You need to stop at the gatehouse, give the guard on duty your information to receive an entrance pass (it's free). You...More
