DeSoto national monument, Bradenton, FL

Florida has several beautiful national monuments. We spent Easter weekend with our family on the boat off DeSoto national monument.


Great little park. Dog friendly beach, interpretive center, nature trails, costumed characters explaining the history of DeSoto's landing. Even free guided kayak tours in season.


We've anchored here for over thirty years, just off the manatee river. The monument park gets better all the time.


There is a state park campground about thirty minutes away, Lake Manatee. I hope if you do come to our part of Florida, that you spend an afternoon at DeSoto.


Two other national monuments on the other coast, Fort Matanzas and the fort at St Augustine, are equally as interesting. Matanzas, and DeSoto, are less frequented by non-Floridians. So, less crowded.
