Staff is great and highly engaging of young visitors. They offer the "junior ranger" program. Hikes, climing trees, beautiful ocean views are all available while learning about the Indian culture and practices.

This is a great example of forward-looking people protecting a site that otherwise would have been commercially developed. Fort Caroline, a French settlement, was captured by the Spanish. There is an interesting museum. Timucuan is a collection of ecological sites.

Great place to bike without worry about any cars. Went south from Omni on a separate wide bike path through beautiful quiet woods. Many places to stop and hike for a few miles if desired. This is the real Florida woods with live oaks, cypress,...More

It's far out in the middle of nowhere. Except from car service, maybe there are tours that take you out there. I don't have information on that though.
