Fodor's Review

Maritime forests, barrier islands, salt marshes, beaches, and coastal waterways make up this 66,287-acre refuge established in 1932 as a migratory bird haven. The Sewee Visitor & Environmental Education Center has information and exhibits on the property and its trails, as well as an outdoor enclosure housing endangered red wolves (feedings are Thursday at 3 pm and Saturday at 11:30 am). The refuge is aiding the recovery of the threatened loggerhead sea turtle, and a video details the work. From the mainland refuge, you can take a $40 ferry ride to Bulls Island to explore its boneyard beach and freshwater ponds teeming with alligators.
