If you are a regular reader of Stretchingittotravel you know we love activities that are low cost. State parks are great places to visit due to their cheap cost and many activities.
We spent a few nights at Fort Myers Beach with the intention of visiting Lovers Key State Park. We arrived around 9am Christmas morning to a rapidly filling parking lot. Admission for the day is $8 a car and the park is open from 8am to sunset daily.
We waited a bit for a trolley to drop us near the waterfront. There was some confusion as to if the trolley ran on Christmas so we ended up walking the short path to the beach.
