  1. Alderman’s Ford Park is a gorgeous Florida fall destination for people who like to hike, sightsee and enjoy Tampa Bay’s natural lush landscape.  Hike along the river on a 1.9 mile loop or launch your canoe and paddle over to Lithia Springs. Dogs are welcome, but must be kept on a leash.

You will find campsites, picnic areas, a canoe launch, fishing, horseback riding and gorgeous beaches. This is the perfect spot to bring the family for a gorgeous Florida fall day!
    While you’re a the state park, check out the Little Manatee River Loop, which is great for anyone who enjoys hiking, walking or horseback riding. The 2.8 mile loop is shaded along the Little Manatee River, and a great place to stroll and enjoy nature – turtles, gators, fish and other wildlife. 
  3. Lowry Park Zoo offers families an inexpensive day trip of exploration and learning.
