Get inspired by the historic Fort De Soto Park in Tierra Verde as you traverse its nearly seven-mile, paved trail. Ogle the pooches at the dog park, fish from the pier and catch a glimpse of some the Gulf of Mexico’s most beautiful beaches. Start at North Beach, head south and explore the shorter nature trails off the main paved one. It costs $5 to get into the park, but it’s worth it for a full day at this nationally recognized gem. The paved multi-use trail also offers access to other areas (some with soft sand, others more hard-packed) that can be accessed on foot or wide-tire bikes.
