Heading through Lehigh Acres, you've probably seen this little park, but you've probably never stopped. Do you need a few minutes to decompress after work, or a quiet place to eat lunch? Check out this little park. It has a short boardwalk and peaceful marsh grasses and flowers. It doesn't have a lot of amenities, but it's worth stopping by every now and then.
My daughters love to run the boardwalk, and it really doesn't take long to look, get a breath of fresh air, and then get back in your car. It's usually empty, or there might be 1-2 other cars.

Lake Superior has a lot of scenic views, but some of the best ones require you to get on boats or kayaks. This one matches a lot of those views, but you can do a lot of it from a car! Also, it's FREE!
So check out Presque Isle Park in Marquette, Michigan! There are scenic overlooks, places to swim, ore docks, cliff divers, rocky beaches, and some amazing scenery!
This one is a definite is you're in northern Michigan!
