The cafe at the visitor center is great home cookin'. I had the veggies burger which can sometimes be sketchy but this one was really good. And then we had the key lime pie. Awesome!

We took the boat from there. you have everything you need: bathrooms, a cafe, a little shop. Sometimes, around there you can see manatees in the marina. We did not unfortunately but we saw alligators taking the sun close to the parking lot!
