In the area, there are bike paths where you can bike, Rollerblade/skate, run, or just walk on. At the main station for the park, you can learn about the wildlife there, and the history of the fort in general. Hiking through the fort itself, you see massive stone walls and you fell pulled back in time. There is much wildlife to see along the trails, kayaking/canoeing in the calm waters, or going to the magnificent beach. At the beach, the sand is soft under your feet and the water usually warm and moderately calm. There is a fishing pier, a camp ground, and if you get hungry a snack bar. Give it a try, go and visit. Alone or with the family, Fort De Soto is sure to be a great time.
