  • So so many miles to go hiking and ride bikes for free. They have their own bikes where you can rent by using an app for free, so you don’t have to bring your own bike if it’s too much of a bother. The trails are beautiful filled with armadillos and lakes. There’s so much to see. The best park I’ve ever been to so far.
  • Very good vacation destination, lots to offer every age group. Friendly and helpful staff. This is a Alabama treasure as well as a National treasure, the coastline is spectacular. The food and drinks are on the high end but that is the only drawback. Enjoy!
