Fort Desoto Park has been voted the number one beach in America and one visit to the white sandy beaches and rolling dunes and you’ll see why. The park offers over one thousand acres of naturally beautiful landscapes where families can picnic, play games, swim, or just relax in the sun. The aqua waters of the Gulf of Mexico will mesmerize you as you recline back and watch the amazing sunsets. Camping is also available for those who fall in love with the park, and many will. Or just take a relaxing walk on the trails that surround the park and enjoy the sounds of nature around you.
History buffs will also enjoy this spot because it is filled with history. Once used as a military post during the Civil War, the park offers a museum with photographs and other memorabilia from the war. For more information, go to www.pinellascounty
