Outdoor Activities on Florida’s Treasure Coast
The Great Outdoors is Calling You On the Treasure Coast
Because we live and work in the area, the team of local Realtors at Hutchinson Island Real Estate also play in the area. There is so much to do in the great outdoors on the Treasure Coast that we can’t possibly list it all on one page. Here are a few of the fantastic ways to enjoy the the outdoor lifestyle that goes hand in hand with becoming one of our neighbors!
Located at the southernmost tip of Hutchinson Island is “Bathtub Beach,” named for the shallow, clear lagoon created at low tide by a natural coral reef located just offshore. Patrolled by pelicans and inspected by seagulls, it offers a rendezvous point for beach lovers seeking to enjoy an early morning walk or a lingering sunset. It is a perfect setting for children’s enjoyment or snorkeling.
Savannah Preserve State Park
One can walk trails and take pictures of plants, bugs, and ‘marsh’. At Savannah Preserve State Park, canoe trips, unguided as well as guided, are provided. Making reservations is advisable. Plus, bird lovers get thrilled as the marsh contains several bird families which reside here. Binoculars are recommended. Education center is also present.
McKee Botanical Gardens
McKee Botanical Garden is a private, not-for-profit cultural organization located at the southern gateway to Vero Beach, Florida. McKee Botanical Garden is known for its 18-acre subtropical jungle hammock, filled with plants appropriate for horticultural growing zone 9B. This dense and diverse collection also features several restored architectural treasures.
Island Princess Scenic Cruises
Relax and enjoy the splendid scenery from the comfort of the enclosed air-conditioned main salon or the open-air upper deck of the sleek Island Princess. As we cruise the calm waters , watch for porpoises, manatees, pelicans, blue herons and egrets in their natural habitat.
Manatee Observation and Education Center
The Manatee Observation and Education Center is a waterfront wildlife observation and nature education center located on Florida’s east coast in downtown Fort Pierce. The Center lies just west of the Atlantic ocean and overlooks the nationally recognized Indian River Lagoon, a saltwater estuary and Moore’s Creek, a freshwater creek and historical resting spot for the Florida manatee.
