- Located next to Port Everglades, this 251-acre state preserve is an animal lover's paradise. Nesting sea turtles come here annually to hatch their eggs, and part of the park is a protected zone for manatees. Visitors can bird-watch and explore the seaside forest to find more common varieties of animals and plants. Excellent fishing, swimming, canoeing and picnicking spots line the length of the park. A concession stand provides snacks and beverages to visitors who forget to pack a lunch.
