The tranquil little island is where it’s at, but you’ll need to take the ferry and rent a golf cart once you’re there. No cars, lots of nature and history and a sweet little downtown. Great get away for the day!

Perfect little aquarium with a real heart for preservation! You won’t find dolphins here because those belong in the ocean, but you’ll learn about them and see many, many other ocean and river creatures that are native to this place.
