Gilchrist Park in Punta Gorda FL

Long park along the Peace River where it flows into Charlotte Harbor. Angled just right for those beautiful Florida sunsets.

Features include tennis court and fishing pier, several benches to rest in, a gazebo by the shore where musicians perform. Covered picnic area by restrooms a great idea. Seems to be the town gathering place, pleasant people who say hello as they pass you.

Impressive Ponce de Leon monument, he supposedly anchored along here in 1513 and met hostile Calusa tribe.

Metromover – Downtown Miami Fl

Always hop aboard when visiting Downtown Miami, have never had a problem. AC works well and PA announcements in non-accented easily-understood English, a joy. All cultural centers and attractions worth going to are a block or two away, a summer joy. All this for FREE, paid for by Miami tax-paying residents, my thanks to them.

Don’t get the negative reviews. OK, so some other kinds hop on, it’s FREE and they are broke, hello! OK, so newbies may be confused at times, try studying the MAP shown in every car and every stop and find yourself. This system was designed for the downtown area only, so why would it be extended when metrorail and buses cover surrounding areas well.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERARented this bike in Coconeut Grove last month. Credit card releases bike, four bucks an hour and I went over that a bit. Lots of traffic and construction along the shore made it a bit daunting. Rode to Kennedy Park where my late mother visited often, an enjoyable waterfront park on Biscayne Bay. Citibike is also in Downtown Miami near Bayfront Park.
