This extraordinary 63-acre subtropical forest, the last remaining virgin palm hammock in the US, is named after philanthropists Francis and Mary Crane, who lived here for years. The property includes the Museum of Natural History and a compact Children’s Activities Center. Adderley House, built by a Bahamian immigrant in 1904, offers a glimpse into how things used to be. But the real attraction is the steamy nature trail leading to the water. All in all, it’s a splendid, undervalued spot, and a lovely way to pass a few hours.
