I absolutely loved my day spent bicycling around the park. Many different sites and wildlife to behold. It's a nice little bike ride to the beach, which made for a relaxing day.

Anne Kolb Nature center is a good place to escape the beaten path. Granted, the trails are somewhat limited, but the observation tower and the guided flat top boat tour are fine places to unwind. Don't expect a lot to see but it's a good...More
