  • Dozens of manatees are the main attraction, but there's also a 900-foot nature walk, a learning center and a gift shop. The Short List: one of our top 5 attractions you've probably never visited.
  • If you go and visit between Dec.-March you're likely to see hundreds of manatees. This popular spot is free and definitely worth the trip.
