Rookery Bay Part One: Inside

Rookery Bay Environmental Learning Center ended up being a great place to kill some time. We arrived at our destination well before check-in time at our campground and had a several hours to fill. The ELC was conveniently located within 1/2 mile of the KOA campground we had chosen. Inside we found aquariums and informational displays centered around the Rookery Bay Estuary.

When I go on a trip, shopping and restaurants aren’t what I’m looking for. I like to find the nature centers and hiking trails, so the ELC was a perfect way to start our visit to the Gulf side.
