“Mile-long beach near Downtown with wetlands, a boardwalk, hiking trails, picnic areas & concessions. The park and beach area are very nice. The water is clear and cold. This is a historic beach that has been cleaned up nicely. There are several markers highlighting it's history including an old Merry-go-round which still works. Great place to relax and escape. It has a cool sand bar if you just want to lay in the water and relax.”

“The dolphin show and seal shows are fantastic, but they have every other sea animal you can imagine. This is where the Flipper TV show was filmed. Buy your ticket online at least one day in advance for a discount.”

Meal Takeaway
“Located in an area known as “the Old Jimbo’s Lagoon,” named for a salty character who lived in old movie sets, and sold homemade smoked fish and cheap beer until he was too ill to live on his own. In the lagoon, you’ll find stingrays, pufferfish, mullet, and sometimes even one (or several) manatees. If you paddle just outside of the lagoon and look to your left, you’ll see a beach that was restored to a living shoreline by the Phillip and Patricia Frost Museum of Science’s volunteer-led habitat restoration program (which I used to run :) ). Just past the beach is an area that my family and I call “The Secret Garden.” Depending on the tide, you can either paddle or walk through the inlet, and you’ll find a beautiful mangrove forest awaiting you! ”
