Experience The Florida Forest From A New Perspective On The Canopy Walk At Myakka River State Park
While some people visit Sarasota for the beautiful beaches and the laid-back salt-life vibe, there is another reason to visit entirely. Myakka River State Park in Florida is a huge park east of the ocean that clocks at 37,000 acres. As one of the largest state parks in the state, there is so much to see and do here. One of the main highlights of the park is a giant canopy walk which takes visitors high about the treetops. Are you brave enough to take this canopy walk?
