The recently re-opened Manatee Lagoon is one of the best places to visit in Florida to see these gentle 1,500- to 2,000-pound creatures. Manatees love people. If they see you on a dock, they'll swim right up and have even been known to roll over in the water, so people can pat their bellies.

On the endangered list for many years — mostly because of irresponsible boaters — they're now making a comeback, and today some 6,300 manatees are known to inhabit the waters around the state, more than almost any other place in the world (there's even talk of removing them from the endangered species list).

Manatee Lagoon features imaginative hands-on exhibits, observation areas, a manatee webcam, and an outdoor deck at which the manatees congregate,…
