This park has been nicely renovated with a splash area, exercise equipment, performance area, and plenty of places to sit and read. Good views of the river and an easy walk into NPR for ice cream or a meal.

Key Vista Nature Park

Reviewed By SharOnMader_13 - Fremont, Ohio

Remember to bring bug spray before taking the walk! Great views of the gulf along the boardwalk. The sand is like walking on a beach; so bring old walking shoes. $2 fee to park. Does have a look out tower for great views; so bring your camera!

This park is in a crowded suburban area, but when in the park, it's quiet and natural. There is good hiking and kayaking/ canoeing. There are many types of birds here to observe.

USA Fleamarket

Reviewed By meandsue - New Bedford

Because of hundreds of safety violations, USA Flea Market has been permanently closed. It was a tragedy waiting to happen and the town acted appropriately to protect the public. Hundreds of safety violations were cited including faulty wiring. I actually liked the place but never felt safe since exits were never clearly marked and the buildings seemed to be rundown. Hopefully a new and better flea market will replace it. I feel bad for the vendors who have to go elsewhere to sell their goods.

James E Grey Preserve

Reviewed By Lisa C

If seeing Florida in its purest state interests you more than theme parks, shopping and professional sports games, come to the James Grey Preserve. This beautiful tract of unadulterated Florida will give you the sense that you are in a completely different space than the touristy, kitschy places seen all over the Sunshine State. A boardwalk winds you through the wetlands. There are restrooms, picnicking areas and a place to launch your kayak. It is the perfect place to spend an hour or two with nature.

Robert K Rees Memorial Park

Reviewed By practicaltravellers - Tampa, Florida

This park is more of a locals spot than a travelers spot but worth a visit if you are nearby. The beach area is quite small but very lovely with mangroves on either end. If you are able to visit near sunset, we highly recommend it. The seagulls absolutely love this spot and we saw more than 100 of them gathered at the water's edge getting their photos taken by locals. There is a section of the Gulf roped off for swimming. It was chilly when we visited so we didn't see any swimmers but I can imagine that area could get rather crowded in the summer months, as it isn't very large. There is a nice playground, picnic area, and restrooms near the beach as well. In addition to the beach area, there is a Boyscout Preserve with a short hiking trail that sits a little farther down Green Key Road. It's a small loop that ends at the salt marshes, which are beautiful. If you don't feel like walking the whole loop (there are signs warning of rattlesnakes which may deter some) start at the right side of the trailhead (the path toward the right of the entrance sign) and the salt marsh is very close.

Richey Suncoast Theater

Reviewed By Mimivfl73 - New Port Richey, Florida

This theater is small and intimate, and the musicals usually feature a live orchestra. All of the performances I have seen have been highly entertaining. I would suggest bringing a sweater as it is sometimes a little chilly. You can purchase food and drink as well.

Treasure Trove Mini Mall & Consignments

Reviewed By Tim G

I have shopped at Treasure Trove many times. This is a vary large clean store jam packed with interesting and useful things. The staff is "super" friendly and helpful.I have furnished half of my home with items from there. From a solid wood Thomasville bedroom set to antique mixing bowls (the exact kind my mom used when I was a kid) to some really nice artwork. The prices are very reasonable. Every time my family comes down to visit from up north they "have" to get a visit in to the Treasure Trove.
