We went to the Grand Bay boardwalk on a Sunday for a nice peaceful stroll! What a beautiful and natural place with so much wildlife around. Take your time to look at all that nature offers. There are signs also that tells stories about the different areas and a tree that was over 400 years old, a long gone farming area and there’s lily pads with beautiful flowers on them. It’s a nice place to take a family, also you can use a stroller or wheelchair! Just the sound of the birds in nature is so refreshing to get out of the fast paced city. A definite must to see.

We chose this location for a lunch break on a long road trip and were delighted with it! 1/2 mile boardwalk into the swamp and forested areas of area is easy and safe to travel and at the end there is a fire tower that gives you a tremendous view of the area. We lucked out and saw an Air Force plane approaching in the distance and then saw 5 paratroopers jump out and open up their parachutes -- exciting!!! There are restrooms at this Area also which makes it even nicer!

Grand Bay Wildlife Management Area is a wonderful get away for those interested in nature. The boardwalk allows you to traverse the mostly cypress swamp quietly. The views from the tower were awesome. We even saw a baby alligator. Good place to take kids of all ages.

If you get the chance and want to make the 10 mile drive out of town, don’t miss this nature preserve. Totally wooden boardwalk through a mature ecosystem with plenty of opportunity to stop and view various settings including cypress swamps and wetlands. There is a tower at the end of the trail which is easy to climb and provides views for miles. We saw two gators, a bullfrog or two and plenty of birds and tiny fish. Best of all, it’s free.

This is out from town, but that is what makes it so beautiful. My favorite feature is the view from the top of the tower at the end of the trail/ deck.
