Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it, which is why Justin Bieber originally had so many views on YouTube. Make memories that stick with today’s Groupon to Historic Spanish Point, located in Osprey. Liquefy your cares as you explore 30 acres of quiet, colorful gardens and native coastal habitats, crisscrossed by accessible nature trails and boardwalks. Soak in views of Little Sarasota Bay, or bring tree branches from home to help you blend in with the mangroves, oaks, mastics, and gumbo-limbos flourishing throughout the property. Established in 1867 as a family homestead and later turned into a pristinely preserved tourist resort, Historic Spanish Point offers a wealth of ties to the past, including a packing house where citrus fruits were once prepared for transport, a cemetery, a chapel, and restored, pioneer-era cottages. Delve even further into history with A Window to the Past, an exhibit on prehistoric inhabitants of the area, developers of the world’s first tanning lotions.
- We loved this place so much, we got married there! We were married at the pergola and sunken garden by the "white cottage". It is so beautiful and very reasonable! – A Yahoo! Contributor who posted on 3/10/08
- What a visit. Were surprised there was so much to see. There is something for so many different tastes--history, nature, butterflies, Indian history (including walking inside an Indian midden), boatbuilding, citrus industry even charming wedding sites. – jmurph2, TripAdvisor
