On one of my trips to Alaska it was a must for me to visit the Kenai Fjords National Park. This National Park covers over 587,000 acres. I decided on the 7.5 hour small cruise tour that would take me up close and personal with glaciers, abundant wildlife, including a pod of nine Orca whales, and some of the most breathtaking scenery Alaska has to offer. This cruise allowed me to see remote parts of the park.
So what exactly is a Devil’s Millhopper? It’s Florida’s only Geological State Park. The park is in Gainesville and was established in 1974, 64 acres of Florida’s natural beauty with a massive 120-foot deep 500-foot wide limestone sinkhole.
Cuyahoga Valley National Park in Ohio is right in my backyard. I think sometimes this is one national park that may get overlooked by visitors to our state. There are countless fun things to do year round in this 33,000 acre national park.
Cedar Lakes Woods & Gardens in Williston, Florida is quite a unique botanical gardens in many aspects. Located just a short drive southwest of Gainesville you’ll find this wonderful oasis in the country. This oasis has been in the making for over 20 years and it’s not finished yet.
My next stop on my Alaska adventure, I headed due south to the end of the Kenai Peninsula. Homer, Alaska is a small town, but big on activities. During the summer months Homer is a busy place, there is so much do to here you could easily spend a few days or a week.
