~There is a geocache hidden at the gazebo in the heart of the village. ~The fish that jump in the canals are Mullet.
~There are no alligators in the canals. They are only fresh water and ours is salt water.
~There is kayaking in mangrove tunnels on Lido Key (favorite thing to do!)
~The white beach sand never gets hot! It is made of 90% quarts and cannot retain the heat.
~ The manatees love to come into the canals when its cold. Often we can see dolphins sanding right on the beach.
~You've got to watch for the "green flash" as the sun hits the horizon. we've only seen it once!
