We enjoyed walking in the gardens and my kids wanted to play on the playground, but the bugs were too bad when we were there so we didn’t stay as long as we would have liked to. Bring bug spray. It’s a pretty area as...More

Just North of Palm Coast, we always feel like we have the place to ourselves, especially the beach. Swimmers need to be careful with the rocks, but the rocks are a photographer’s dream setting. Try it once and you’ll be back frequently.

This place is one of my family’s favorite places. The gorgeous ponds, wildlife, and fauna are amazing and at $5.00 this is a great morning activity. There is a place to watch the inlet waters as well as a nature trail.

Beach is not open yet as of last weekend. You can park at Marineland and walk the beach. There is lots of heavy duty constuction equipment and beach replenishment in place so be careful.
