I'll be in Orlando for work during the last weeks of May and I have couple of full days free I'd like to spend traveling a bit around that area and do some activity like kayaking and possibly wildlife sightseeing (particular interested in alligators and turtles).
From my researches looks like a good place to enjoy nature in Florida is the Everglades National Park but it's a bit too far from Orlando, considering the small amount of days I have at my disposal. I restricted the choices between the "Space Coast" where there is, for example, Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge, Canaveral National Seashore (turtles! but in May?) or the "Tampa Bay Area" where there is, for example, the Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park and the Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary.
Are this really the best options I have around Orlando? Where I have the highest chances for the best wildlife sightseeing and diversity?
