Sebastian Inlet was a nice change from the ocean beaches. Our grandchildren were visiting so we tried the park for the first time. It was a very good experience since the kids were 1 1/2 and 3. We didn't have to worry about rough surf.

Great place for people watching, swimming, fishing and just laying back and enjoying The Sun. Conveniently located near fishing shops and great food places and great surfing.

We stopped by to see the Inlet, watched the movie in the museum and saw the fishermen being active. We now might rent an RV and come back to do some fishing. YIKES
