Florida State parks

As you would expect from a state so blessed with greenery, Florida has no shortage of state parks – 161 to be exact. Protecting everything from nature reserves to recreational areas under a governmental remit, several of these places were private land until they were bought by the state to preserve their natural environment. The private client’s loss is everybody else’s gain – with all manner of beautiful scenery, flora and fauna to enjoy, a visit to a state park is a great way to relax in-between those hectic theme-park days. Park rangers are friendly and knowledgeable, so be sure to pick their brains for information. Who knows what you might learn?
