Experience the leisure opportunities in Sebastian
One of the top birding spots in the United States is the St. Sebastian River Preserve State Park. Archie Carr National Wildlife Refuge was implemented to protect loggerhead sea turtle breeding habitat within the Western Hemisphere. It is a 248-acre refuge that spans 20.5 miles. On Florida’s east coast, Sebastian Inlet is known as the best saltwater fishing spot. One of two national scenic byways in Florida is the 233-mile Indian River Lagoon National Scenic Byway. Because of its great historical, natural as well as recreational attractions for explorers of all ages, the Byway was designated as a Scenic Highway. Sebastian offers one of the most beautiful skydiving sceneries in the world.
Mel Fisher’s Treasure Museum
Mel Fisher, a world-famous treasure hunter, has a museum dedicated to his life and legacy. Here, you will discover a variety of Spanish artifacts from the Nuestra Senora de Atocha and the Treasure Galleons of the 1715 Fleet. The gift shop is a hidden treasure in and of itself, brimming with original pieces from the eighties, museum-quality recreations, and Mel Fisher memorabilia.
Sebastian Bark Park
You could also take your dog for a walk along the path near the pond, but dogs must be on a leash in this place. The Park offers shade shelters for owners to relax in while their dogs play as well as watering stations, a sally-port entrance and separate areas for little and large dogs.
Every weekend, Earl’s Hideaway, a biker-friendly bar-concert venue features the best live music. National touring blues and rock musicians hit the stage every Sunday. The charm of this Sebastian icon is complemented with excellent food and drink, as well as a beautiful river view.
