Another great Florida State Park is Koreshan Historic Site in Estero. It is right off of 41 with alot to do in the area. There is the Koreshan settlement that you can tour, it is right on the river with canioe rentals and it is in the midst of city life but very secluded and quiet. The Coconut Point shopping area is only a couple of miles away and that is like a city within a city. Great night life to just stroll and window shop. They have great sites, very private but close enough to meet many wonderful people. And the beaches are only a few miles away as well. Of course it gets booked in the winter. We will be spending the last two days of February there before we head to the beach for three weeks.
Did I mention we'll be leaving in 41 days!!!!
