“Although it may seem like an odd place, this manatee sanctuary is located across from a Tampa Electric power plant. The manatees are drawn here by the warm water produced by the power plant and can sometimes be seen in very large numbers. They are most prevalent when the surrounding water temperatures are cold, dipping below 68 degrees Fahrenheit. Visitors will find a tidal walkway showcasing a variety of Florida plants and birds, butterfly gardens as well as an observation platform for the manatees. The Manatee Viewing Center is also home to an educational building that features the power plant and the manatees.”

“Pinellas County in the Tampa Bay area maintains some of the finest parks in the state. The waters of the Gulf of Mexico and Tampa Bay surround the peninsula that makes up Pinellas County. In 1948, Pinellas County began acquiring land through purchases and donations, and creating free parks for the county residents and visitors. Spanning 122 acres, the county acquired the land that became Philippe Park in 1948. It is located on the east coast of Pinellas County along the western shores of Old Tampa Bay in a small town called Safety Harbor. Philippe Park in Safety Harbor offers lots of activities to visitors. Large groups can rent one of the many picnic pavilions for birthday parties or group functions. Many single picnic tables and grills also dot the grounds of the park and are available on a first-come basis. The boat ramp gives boaters easy access to Old Tampa Bay for a day on the water or fishing. Those who don’t own a boat can fish along the one mile of shoreline in Philippe Park. Benches or flat grassy areas give visitors perfect places to rest for a view of the Bay. Three playgrounds and a ball field provide sporting and play fun for all ages. Like most of the Pinellas County parks, Philippe Park has been thoughtfully planned out and is a popular (and free) place for exercise and relaxation for the local residents. The park holds historical significance for two reasons. First, it’s the site of Count Odet Philippe’s 160 acre plantation which he purchased in 1842. Count Philippe was the county’s first permanent, non-native settler. A successful businessman, he introduced grapefruit and cigar-making to the Tampa Bay area. When he died in 1869 he was buried on his plantation, and though the exact site of his grave is unknown it is believed to be somewhere within the park, which is named for him. Local artists paint grapefruit by request on buildings in nearby Safety Harbor, a nod to Philippe’s contribution to Florida’s citrus industry. Philippe Park’s more historical significance lies in the presence of an Indian mound within the park’s boundaries Indian mounds in Florida can be found in many coastal locations. There were 14 between Tampa and Sarasota, seven of which still remain. The native Tocobaga tribes constructed Indian mounds in three distinct varieties – burial mounds, the midden (or trash pile), and ceremonial mounds. The mound in Philippe Park was a ceremonial mound though experts believe many middens were also located throughout the park. Philippe Park’s Indian mounds stands approximately 20 feet tall and is approximately 100 feet at each side at the base. A ceremonial building likely stoop on the flat top of the mound, overlooking upper Tampa Bay. The ceremonial mound at Philippe Park in Safety Harbor overlooks Old Tampa Bay offering beautiful views of the water and surrounding park. The village which once surrounded the mound was probably the “capital” of the Tocobago civilization which lived in Pinellas County from 900 to the late 1700s. In 1966 the mound was designated an historic site by the National Park Service and is known as the Safety Harbor Site. The Tocobaga feasted on the abundant oysters in the nearby shallow water, and over the years the discarded oyster shells grew into the large mound. On this Sunday the park is filled with people. The picnic pavilions overflow with families and special events. Walkers, joggers,parents and children, and fishermen amble along the shoreline. Older couples sit on picnic tables under the hundreds of oak trees, laughing or talking, enjoying the warm weather and beautiful day. Children scamper over playground equipment. Families walk up the ramp on the Indian mound to enjoy the view from the top. Sitting under the oaks at the base of the mound, Tampa Bay’s waters lap at the seawall a few feet away from me. For a moment, I don’t see jet-skiers racing in the waters or people clad n shorts and t-shirts enjoying their weekend. For a moment, I see an earthen ramp leading from the top of the mound to a plaza filled with women and children. I see the land sloping to shell-strewn beaches where men clamber out of dugouts. Instead of airplanes and jet ski motors, I hear the wind pushing through dried palm fronds and the muted voices of the village. It’s easy to see why the Tocobago would have chosen this site for their capital. Easy access to the water, beautiful views, and a sheltered location would have invited them to settle here and build a life, as much as the site later invited Count Philippe to build his plantation and now invites the visitors to Philippe Park to settle down for a few hours and enjoy the outdoors.”

“One of the few untouched islands along the Gulf Coast, Caladesi Island State Park is accessible only by boat, but is worth the extra effort. Whether it is a stroll along the island’s pristine beaches or a kayak trip through the bayside mangrove forest, a trip to Caladesi Island is an unforgettable experience. Take a nature trail walk to the historic Scharrer Homestead through the island’s interior and listen to the ocean breeze whisper through old-growth slash pines and feel the embrace of expansive live oaks.”

“Be sure to stop by and checkout one of Tampa's new hot spots. Tampa Riverwalk is a 2.6-mile-long (4.2 km) open space and pedestrian trail development along the Hillsborough River in Tampa, Florida. Great place for a walk along the river and who knows where you will end up. Countless stops along the river could easily fill a day with fun. Many people enjoy walking with their dogs and letting them socialize in two of Tampa's county dog parks. ”
