Florida State Parks: Washington Oaks Gardens

By August 21, 2008

Follow me on:

Washington Oaks GardensLynn Wettach is a regular visitor here at Florida Travel and subscribes to my About Travel newsletter. She also loves Florida's state parks as much as I do. I took Lynn up on her offer to share her favorite state park with all of you. So, this week I get a vacation while you get to tag along with her to Washington Oaks Gardens State Park. You're in for a real treat as you read her wonderfully descriptive narrative and view her fabulous photos. You'll find that Washington Oaks is a great place to spend time wandering along a wooded trail, listening to the waves as they crash over rocks, or inhale the sweet scent of orange blossoms and roses. Enjoy!

Florida State Park Series Ending

Finally, as the saying goes... all good things must come to an end. The end of summer brings an end to my Florida State Park Series. I hope you agree it has been a good thing. Over the last few weeks, we've visited some of Florida's finest state parks and some pretty unusual ones too. We've photographed America's #1 beach, drove on what is possibly the World's Longest Fishing Pier, toured a southern mansion, an old fort and a tiny casita, listened to the music of a carillon tower, camped along the Suwanee River and watched manatees from an underwater observatory. There are still more state park adventures to be experienced, and we'll bring those to you from time to time, so check back here in Dawn's Florida Travel Blog. Or, sign up for my free weekly newsletter, About Florida to keep up-to-date on all the Florida Travel news and events.
