    Military Sea Services Museum

    by yooperprof Updated Apr 4, 2011
    ships ahoy!

    This is a small museum dedicated to telling the story of the American naval forces over the course of the last 200 years, with the emphasis on World War II and the Cold War era. Items in the museum have been donated by locals veterans and military enthusiasts, and there are several rooms with interesting displays of model ships, uniforms, and personal memorabilia. There is also a small research library. The museums highlights not only the US Navy, but also the Marines and Coast Guard as well.

    One room of the museum is dedicated to telling the story of the USS Highlands, a military service vessel that saw service during World War II. I got a very nice guided tour of the whole museum for the price of admission - (I think I may have been the only visitor that afternoon.)

    Call in advance to check out their hours of operation.

    Highlands Hammock State Park - just off U.S. 27

    Reflection of Trees

    A "Hammock" is a particularly kind of hardwood forest that grows in swampy regions. Central Florida once abounded in this kind of growth, but the number and extent of the hammocks has been greatly reduced due to ever increasing development of strip malls, retirement communities, and golf courses. Hammocks provide excellent habitat for all kinds of critters, and one of the most important functions of this State Park is to serve as a natural laboratory to study ways in which we might be able to preserve some of incredible diversity of plants and animals that once made this region such a fascinating place.
