Designated a national wildlife refuge by the US Fish & Wildlife Service, Ding Darling is home to a myriad of birds, mammals, reptiles, and habitats. Pre-book a tram tour or ride a bike, hike, or kayak through the park. Closed on Fridays.

This place is a little more elaborate than a park..but the same general idea..just bigger..hiking..animal watching, and photography. On Sanibel Island!

It is a $6 fee to go across the bridge but it is worth it. The drive through the refuge has several pull off spots to enjoy.

Go early before heat and traffic. Normally 45 min. drive but in season, it can take up to 60-90 minutes as there is one way and one way off island.

Museum
“For everyone who has ever picked up a sea shell and wondered, "where did this come from?". Or, "what kind of creature made this?". Located on Sanibel Island, (not Pine Island): check drive times, depending on how busy tourist season is. Note: the Shell Museum is not far from Sanibel's Bowman's Beach. Arrive early AM for a parking spot. ”
