Fodor's Expert Review Eden Gardens State Park

Grayton Beach Historic Home

If you can tear yourself away from the sand and sea, there's a lovely green alternative just a few miles inland at the restored home of lumber magnate William Henry Wesley. Tours of the mansion are given throughout the day, and furnishings inside the spacious rooms date from as far back as the 17th century. The surrounding grounds—the perfect setting for a picnic—are beautiful year-round, but they're nothing short of spectacular in mid-March, when the azaleas and dogwoods are in full bloom.
