Hugh Taylor Birch State Recreation Area

Hugh Taylor Birch State Recreation Area Review

North of Fort Lauderdale's bustling beachfront, past Sunrise Blvd., the quieter sands of Fort Lauderdale beach run parallel to Hugh Taylor Birch State Recreation Area, a nicely preserved patch of primeval Florida. The 180-acre tropical park sports lush mangrove areas along the Intracoastal waterway, and lovely nature trails. Visit the Birch House Museum, enjoy a picnic, play volleyball, or paddle a rented canoe. Since parking is limited on Route A1A, park here and take a walkway underpass to the beach (which can be accessed 9–5, daily). Amenities: toilets. Best for: solitude; walking.
