Central Florida - East Coast

It’s true; most Florida tourists will make Orlando a part of their vacation – especially families who want their children to experience the delights of the area’s extensive theme parts. For Orlando visitors want to include at least a day or two at the beach while in Florida, New Smyrna Beach and the stretch of coast called the Canaveral National Seashore are just an hour away – and offer a completely different world. After a few days on the concrete of theme parks, the ocean and the natural attractions of the Mosquito Lagoon are a pleasant world apart. Captain Karty Sills, who fishes for red drum and speckled trout in the lagoon, also appreciates the incredible wildlife in the area. “the islands in the lagoon are important nesting areas for birds and the lagoon itself is a spawning ground and nursery for a large variety of both ocean and lagoon species,” Captain Karty says. The lagoon boasts more than 35 endangered species there are four species of fish that don’t breed anywhere else but in the Indian River Lagoon system. This area is part of the Great Florida Birding Trail and bird lovers can spot many species of geese and duck, birds of prey such as hawks, osprey, falcons, and owls, more common birds such as warblers, woodpeckers, doves and mockingbirds, and the aquatic species -- sandpipers, gulls, terns, herons, egrets, ibis, spoonbills, kingfishers, loons, pelicans and cormorants. Check out Captain Karty’s tips for Making the Most of Orlando’s Theme Parks.
