Anastasia State Park
    Two hours from Orlando
    With close proximity to local shopping centers, but far enough away to enjoy isolated sandy spots, this location is perfect for a day filled with fun activities. Long stretches of pristine beach, a salt marsh lake for paddling and kayaking, and spots for bird-watching make the spot so much more than just a beach trip.
