  • A great place that is nearby, tranquil, informative and relaxing. Bring your camera. Just wait until the mosquitoes have gone. Fall and winter is best. 
  • An unusually well-done nature center. Boardwalk is a waste of time if you are searching for fauna rather than flora. Good walks nearby.
  • As someone mentioned, this does feel like a sacred place. I enjoyed seeing the many artists painting landscapes around the refuge especially near the marsh. Notice to visitors: When you come to visit, don't expect to see every animal that lives in the habitat...this is not a zoo. I think the greatest gift the refuge has to offer is peace and quiet and a meditative atmosphere.
  • Hidden jem off 441 at Benders market. Canoe , kayak, fish, bike, nature everywhere. Bird paradise. Gators too. Go relax walk. See the indoor exibit. Must do for all nature buffs
  • They have a giant alligator that hangs out under the fishing pier. I think his name is George but don't quote me on that. They also have a boardwalk that goes through a cypress swamp. It's about a fifteen minute walk thru. It is a great place to bring out of town guests. Bring bug spray.
  • A superior location for wildlife Viewing. Free parking, free admission, just get there early on the weekends!
