The U.S. is known for its almost infinite amount of State Parks/Nature Preserves that boast some of the world’s most breathtaking scenery and are home to thousands of species of animals and plants exclusive to North America. While the state of Florida has almost become synonymous with ‘beach’, it is home to some of the most naturally beautiful and unique state parks in the country. We check out five of the best.
Sebastian Inlet State Park
Known as the surf mecca of Florida, this park is a must visit for surfers and water sports lovers alike. Don’t fancy surfing? No problem, try out some of Florida’s other favorite pastimes such as skim boarding, paddle boarding and wake boarding or just relax on the beach and watch the experts practice their craft. The inlet is also one of Florida’s premiere fishing spots where fisherman nationwide come to catch snook, red fish, blue fish and Spanish mackerels. Escape the heat and check out the McLarty Treasure Museum and learn the history behind the 1715 Spanish treasure fleet. Canoeing and Kayaking down the Indian River Lagoon are also favorite pastimes of nature lovers visiting the park.
