Marco Island In Our Travato

Our next stop after leaving Key West was the Collier-Seminole State Park in the Marco Island / Naples Florida area. Thanks to the Big Cyprus National Reserve along the way and the amazing exhibits at Collier-Seminole, we learned a lot about the history of this area. Most of Florida’s state parks have something interesting but this one actually has a piece of history, the famous Walking Dredge that helped create the Tamiama Trail. You can walk around it and read all about how it was used to create the actual road we drove on to get to the park. Pretty cool! There’s lots of water and hiking at the park too and we found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. It’s so far out in the middle of nowhere literally that they host star gazing astronomy sessions. And the wildlife… wow! We also lost count of the number of alligators we saw both on hikes and out the window of the Travato van as we rode down highway 41.
