At Lake Seminole Park, you’ll find a place to launch a boat or kayak into the lake, exercise on the 1- and 2-mile paved trails, picnic and grill at the pavilions, and enjoy the natural wildlife viewing (you might catch a glimpse of a gator or two here!). For a truly Floridian park experience, explore Boca Ciega Millennium Park, a stop on the Great Florida Birding Trail. From here, you can kayak or walk the trails, hang at the playground or get Fido some exercise at the dog park. The most magical part of the park, though, is the 35-foot observation tower, where a climb to the top will treat you with expansive views of Boca Ciega Bay.
After a day out in the sun, stop for a brew at Rapp Brewing Company for one of their specialty small-batch ales. This up-and-coming brew house is a must for any beer enthusiast.
