Sightseeing in Bonita Springs usually begins at Bonita Beach, which marks with signs a number of public accesses to its silky-sand beaches. Most popular because of its facilities, activities, and nearby beach restaurant, Bonita Beach Park is the place to get in on a game of beach volleyball or have fun on the playground.
At Barefoot Beach Preserve, a short drive away, a nature park and excellent bird watching add dimension to a day at the beach.
Everglades Wonder Gardens in the heart of downtown Bonita Springs is an old-fashioned zoo where alligator and river otter shows entertain. For a different variety of entertainment, head to the local dog track.
