A Dog and a Lighthouse: Navigating Through Bill Baggs Park
Built in 1825, the Lighthouse over at Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park is listed as the oldest-standing structure in Miami-Dade County. Because I am such a curious dog, I convinced the human to take me on an adventure there to see this classic piece of architecture.
I love being outdoors. It is my absolute favorite. The moment you put a leash on me, these little legs of mine get a burst of energy (JUST like Speedy Gonzalez. Andale, Andale!).
Below a quick recap of the day in pictures:
Things To Keep In Mind
If you plan on visiting Miami, make sure to reserve a day for Bill Baggs State Park. It is way more than just a beach destination, as you saw above. In addition to the lighthouse, the park has 2 restaurants, a free guided tour of the lighthouse (Thursday-Monday from 10am to 1pm), fishing piers, bike rentals, and lots and lots of nature trails. In
Apawrently, during the summer, the park rangers tape off some of the beach for sea turtle season. That’s right, you might even catch the little baby turtles (which are NOT play toys) hatch and going back to sea!!
Admission is $8 per car and $2.00 for walkers or bikers, not bad at all for loads of things to do and a day filled with fun. Lastly, the park is open from dawn until dusk.
This is a dog-friendly State Park as long as we are on a leash. Dogs are NOT allowed on the beach or in the water however. (boo)
