In in May we celebrated 9 years of marriage with a kid-free camping trip to Myakka River State Park! My husband, who just started his own blog, wrote about our trip here! But I wanted to share this unique state park with you too.
One of the oldest state parks in the state, Myakka River State Park is located in the Sarasota area. I grew up on the East Coast, so Florida’s west coast ecosystem is a new, exciting place to explore. My favorite part about the park was the 76′ observation tower, as well as the park’s delicious Pink Gator Cafe! We have been to a lot of state parks, and I never seen such a nice park cafe. Florida craft beers, alligator stew, and many other healthy choices were on its awesome menu.
We are looking forward to bring the kids back to this beautiful park in the fall!
