Views of Tampa Bay & Weedon Island State Preserve

The Preserve provides miles and miles of kayak and canoe trails, meandering walking/hiking trails, lovely picnic areas, a 45-foot observation tower with commanding views of Tampa Bay, a variety of fishing and a chance to go back in time to a simpler, quieter Tampa Bay era.
