Things to do

 
 


Washington Oaks Gardens State Park

We are blessed to have a 410 acre nature preserve and bird sanctuary that comprises Washington Oaks Gardens State Park. It is a great place to take a walk or ride a bike. You can pack a lunch and eat it on their picnic tables that overlook the intracoastal waterway. The gardens are incredibly beautiful. Make sure you walk through their garden path that has natural sulfur artesian well. You'll see lots of wildlife. Click here to see their website.

Fort Matanzas National Monument

Fort Matanzas is just about 5 miles north of Sea Colony on the west side of A1A. It's a great outing with kids as you can see a movie about it's history and take a short boat ride across the Matanzas Inlet to the Fort where the kids can explore. There is no charge but they do appreciate donations. There are some great kids activity books about the area in their gift shop. Click here to see their website.

Marineland of Florida

Marineland is just a short 3 miles north of Sea Colony. The park is right on the ocean and was the world's first oceanarium, opening in 1938. You can see the entire park in about a half day. It's a great attraction for the kids as well as adults as it's not overcrowded and the shows allow you to get up close and personal with the animals. They offer snorkeling in the oceanarium as well as swimming with dolphins for an extra fee and for which you need to sign up for in advance. They may be booked several weeks in advance for these special offerings.  Click here to see their website.
