  • The kayak tour was great. Waiting and being eaten up by the noseeems wasnt. Lol. The Rangers were very knowledgeable!
  • Great place for a walk or swim with your family & pet. Plenty of spots to soak up Florida history, flora and fauna. Good launching point for a kayak. Although you will have to carry your boat about 60 yards to the shore.
  • DeSoto National Park, not to be confused with DeSoto County Park north of here in Pinellas County, is a place where you can step back in time to 1539. Follow the Spanish Explorer Hernando DeSoto on his 4,000 mile expedition from Florida across Georgia, Arkansas and Mississippi. The film and visitor center were very informative. Park Rangers friendly. Nice nature trail along the shore of the Manatee River.
  • My girls and I had a blast on the haunted trail on Saturday
  • The most beautiful beach in Florida... sand and water are the most beautiful
