Washington Oaks Gardens State Park

I don’t remember what year we discovered this Florida state park, but I thought I would recommend it today.

Washington Oaks Gardens State Park is midway between St. Augustine and Daytona Beach on A1A.  You see from the photo the beach isn’t a typical lay-in-the-sun beach, but more appealing to an eco-tourist.

What you may enjoy at the park:

  • Tidal pools on the beach
  • Coastal scrub and hammock for birding
  • Fishing
  • Biking
  • Hiking
  • Reenactors
  • And a beautiful formal gardens

The park is also popular for weddings and receptions.

Visit their site for more info and for pictures. We know you’ll love this park!
