We visited Seminole Rest for a Florida History field trip. This is a great little park and it is free of charge! The big trees are so beautiful and the history is very interesting.

Seminole Rest is about a half mile boardwalk around the property. It's peaceful and relaxing with nice views of the river and a glimpse of 'old Florida.' I was fascinated by one of the gnarled old trees on the property- looks like it's endured so...More
