Gumbo Limbo

Who can resist going to a nature center called Gumbo Limbo?
I'm pretty sure you're asking yourself what gumbo limbo means. This is straight out of their brochure: "Gumbo limbo is sometimes called the 'Tourist Tree' for its red and peeling bark." Like many of the local nature centers (did I mention I love Florida because I can say that?), it features a walk through the hammock (some nature centers have canopy walks), indoor museum exhibits and outdoor animal tanks and enclosures. There is also open space and a butterfly garden. We enjoyed our trip very much, especially the gift shop.
