Experience a bit of the old Florida at the undeveloped, natural parklands in Myakka River State Park. An oasis amid the busy tourist spots in Sarasota, the park offers visitors the opportunity to escape and enjoy its 29,000 acres of nature. Whether you’re interested in tropical plants and animals, or you’re looking for a fun, chilled-out day trip in a more natural setting, the State Park has it all. Rentals are available for biking, canoeing, kayaking, hiking, and birdwatching. For those that would prefer the safety of a tour, why not hop on a tram or airboat? Operating frequently, the expert tours allow you to explore the ecosystems at ease.
Spot the alligators, snakes, eagles, and armadillos – just a few of the residents in this park. A trip to the Myakka Canopy Walkway and Observation Tower is a must too – just for the amazing views at the top. But with plenty to see and do here, the details of your final itinerary are totally up to you.
