Want to slow it down, visit Hunting Beach State Park. Plenty of parking, great beach, picnic area, hiking/biking trails, and Historic Home that only charges a couple of bucks for a guided tour. We spent about 2 hours, but you could easily spend the day.

There is a charge to get in...the beaches are nice, hiking trails as well and endless birds and water fowl. Boardwalk extends over the wetlands for a nice walk and alligator sighting......all in all a nice day.

Beautiful park with much to do for everyone. Nice short trails, lots of birdlife, beautiful clean beaches, clean bathrooms and nice picnic area. You have to bring your own food - the store is focused on campers
