Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair. ~ Kahlil Gibran
Imagine a place where you can picnic on the beach, so near to the surf you can hear its melody. Where manatees swirl in the shallows, pelicans soar on the sea breeze, and boats splash through a meandering river. Where ships, so huge they look like moving buildings, silently part the water, only a breath away from anglers on the jetty. Where you never have to worry about finding room to spread your beach towel.
You don’t have to imagine anymore, because John Lloyd Beach State Park (6503 N. Ocean Drive, Dania Beach, FL 33004; phone: 954- 923-2833) offers all of this and more – close to the city, yet a world away.
