We visit the Merritt Island national Wildlife refuge every visit. It takes you back to real Florida, and gets you away from the commercialised centres. Start at the visitors centre then move out. We always head to the Manatee viewing platform however if they aren't there go to the boat launching area on the other side of the river and they normally hang around there, magical creatures. There is lots of wildlife, beaches, viewing platforms and no crowds, it makes such a refreshing change. Well worth a visit, will we be back?, hell yes.
