Florida is home to 171 award-winning state parks and trails. From as far Northwest as Pensacola to as Southeast as the Florida Keys, Florida parks and trails spread state wide and provide a variety of activities for children and adults alike. Get a front row seat to see manatees, Florida’s gentle giants, in their wintertime home at Blue Springs State Park, or explore the Bulow Plantation ruins, and see firsthand the rise and fall of sugar mills at Bulow Plantation Ruins Historic State Park. Avid mountain bikers flock to the Cross Florida Greenway-Santos Bike Trails in Ocala to challenge themselves on over 80 miles of off-road bike trails; while divers and snorkelers alike swim the blue waters of John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park, the nation’s first undersea park. Whether you: bike, hike, snorkel, scuba, walk, run, canoe, kayak, swim, paddle board, picnic or play, there’s a Florida State Park to accommodate anyone’s interests.
