This place is a little more elaborate than a park..but the same general idea..just bigger..hiking..animal watching, and photography. On Sanibel Island!

Designated a national wildlife refuge by the US Fish & Wildlife Service, Ding Darling is home to a myriad of birds, mammals, reptiles, and habitats. Pre-book a tram tour or ride a bike, hike, or kayak through the park. Closed on Fridays.

Traffic is rough getting there, but this is a beautiful preserve. Well worth your time.

Go early before heat and traffic. Normally 45 min. drive but in season, it can take up to 60-90 minutes as there is one way and one way off island.

Great place to see unique birds and maybe an alligator.

If you like Florida wildlife, must see on Sanibel and the way to North Captiva.

“For everyone who has ever picked up a sea shell and wondered, "where did this come from?". Or, "what kind of creature made this?". Located on Sanibel Island, (not Pine Island): check drive times, depending on how busy tourist season is. Note: the Shell Museum is not far from Sanibel's Bowman's Beach. Arrive early AM for a parking spot. ”

“Top beach in Florida. Bring an umbrella for shade, spend the day, just after high tide is best for shelling!”
