Loxahatchee Scenic River

You can’t beat the Loxahatchee River for a glimpse of Old Florida, or the stories that surround it. The fast river was the first National Wild and Scenic River named in Florida. Native growth lines the banks, and it’s not at all unusual to see alligators here – keep appendages in the canoe. Put in at Riverbend Park for a 2- to 3-hour loop trip. It’s fairly easy, and they’ll rent you a canoe or kayak here.
