At the northern end of Pinellas County, you can escape to Brooker Creek. Lots of trails, but many other activities too. We love the once/month Sat. book club, which is discussing FL history and authors right now.

Great park with easy trails and a variety of flora styles. We didn't see much in the way of fauna but it was a super relaxing off the beaten path place and was free entry. Take the time to take a walk.
