Outdoor spaces are part of what make living in the Palm Beaches so great—and that is especially true now as we continue making an effort to social distance.

Just 10 miles south of West Palm Beach you can experience primeval Florida. At the Arthur R. Marshall Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge, you'll see hundreds of species of animals and plants that exist only in the Florida Everglades ecosystem.

Here, on the northern fringe of the Everglades, you can see endangered species such as the snail kite and the wood stork, as well as the king of Florida wildlife, the American alligator. You can walk on elevated boardwalks through tropical landscapes such as marshes, mangroves, and hammocks (small islands in the Everglades).

There are numerous trails for walking or biking, along with watery "highways," where you can paddle in a canoe, such as the Marsh Trail or the Everglades Canoe Trail. And you can do all of this in a vast expanse of 147,392 acres. If your sightseeing wish list includes a place where the sights are animals and plants and exotic colors and landscapes native to Florida, and the only sounds you'll hear are the breezes rushing through the trees, this is it.

If the opportunity to visit Peanut Island arises, go for it. Home to the famous Kennedy Bunker (currently closed for renovations), you'll be rewarded with safe swimming at the beaches, water sports such as kayaking and canoeing, camping and picnic spots, fishing off the pier, and pleasant walking trails.
