The scenic Myakka River flows from North of Myakka Head near to SR 64 E through three different counties – Manatee, Sarasota and Charlotte in Florida before the mouth joins Charlotte Harbor.  


The Myakka River was designated a Florida Wild and Scenic River by the State legislature in 1985


The scenic native cabbage palm trees, oak trees and colorful watershed wetland along the Myakka River (which is about 72miles length) in this virtual tour are from: Sarasota County SR 72 over Myakka River Bridge to the popular Myakka River State Park and other parks.  You may see people who like outdoor activities enjoy canoeing or kayaking to relax in the peaceful, unspoiled natural environment. Also it is fun to watch some wildlife: alligators, birds and deer.  



The Venice Myakka River Park is nested at the end of 7501Laurel Road E, Nokomis, FL 34275. It has a boat dock and visitors can enjoy boating and fishing along the Myakka River. It will take you to The Sleeping Turtles Preserve North which is located at 3462 Border Road, Venice FL 34292.

From Snook Haven you will ride down the Myakka River to a new park named after Senator Bob Johnson. It’s address is 9083 S. Tamiami Trl.

Hello Kwee - it's nice to see you back posting on ActiveRain.  I have never been to Florida but reading about the state definitely brings visions of water and alligators so this post brings the two elements into focus with your overview of the Myakka River State Park area.  There is obviously plenty to do in nature.
