We wnt to long key state park specifically for the canoe trail. This trail, which takes about an hour, follows simple markers through the mangroves and a lake, and is an excellent way to be really, really close to nature.
On our trip, we were the only ones canoe-ing, therefore there was a complete feeling of nature. Although the US1 road is closeby, you actually couldn't hear it.
The park rangers who rent out the equipment were excellent, and were very happy to talk about the water snake we encountered.
After the canoe trip we also walked the boardwalk. Again, very well laid out and nice (but very short).
Renting 2 canoes for a couple of hours was 10 $. Adding the entry fee for a car 6$, this was 3 hours of great fun and tranquility and beauty for $16 in total. Where else can you find that?
