It’s summer, but that shouldn’t stop you from playing outdoors. Down in the quiet town of Osprey between Sarasota and Venice, you can see their namesake bird along South Creek at Oscar Scherer State Park.
The extensive trail system gets you deep into Florida scrub-jay habitat, but a summer morning is best enjoyed with a stroll along South Creek or a paddle down the waterway.
Check out the details on this easy hike that the kids will love. Part of it is wheelchair accessible, too.
