Fodor's Review

North of Fort Lauderdale's bustling beachfront, past Sunrise Boulevard, the quieter sands of Fort Lauderdale beach run parallel to Hugh Taylor Birch State Park, 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). In July and August, the park teams up with the Sea Turtle Oversight Protection organization to conduct turtle walks on Tuesday and Wednesday nights, helping to release sea turtle hatchlings into the ocean. Amenities: toilets. Best for: solitude; walking.
