In November I was searching the bucket lists I have at the top of the page for something new that we could go discover. I came across the Myakka River State Park Treetop canopy walk and was very intrigued. It is the only treetop canopy walk in Florida and sounded very interesting.
We drove to Sarasota from our house - only took about 2.5 hours and drove directly to the state park. Upon entering the area we paid our $6.00 to park and decided to check out the tourist station. The guide there explained that we had to drive a little further down to get to the canopy walk.
Inside the ranger/tourist station there were different displays regarding the flora and fauna of Florida. The Myakka River State Park is one of the oldest and largest filled with wetlands, prairies, and woodlands.
