Falls Lake Dam Recreation Area
This area has water access and lots of beautiful views. Many hiking trails around this area.
One of my favorite places for a quick dip and a little fishing. I almost always catch a bass here, and even if I don't, the trails and swimming always cheer me up!
Another place to take a stroll and a hike. Gaze at the wide expanse of Falls Lake, the source of Raleigh's drinking water. To hear the rustling of the water falling from the dam is our version of a waterfall.
Miles of paved greenway & dirt trails wind around Falls Lake & the Neuse River. Fishing, Vikings, hiking, canoeing
This is a great place to hang out on the floating dock and enjoy a sunset picnic by the lake. Fishing at the tailrace, hiking trails and a small playground. Take the moderately steep trail to the left of the restroom up the hill to the top of the dam.
“Great homemade pastries, breakfast and family home grown service and atmosphere.”
“Local park 5 minutes away with playground, walking/running paths, big fields, indoor gym.”
“Best Place on Fort Myers Beach for watching the sunset. Drinks and food a little pricier BUT great views & the food is good.”
“Located less than 5 minutes away, a local favorite is Farm Table/Gatehouse. Enjoy a wide variety of healthy local food options and seasonal menus. Be sure to check out their website for upcoming events, to potentially catch in some local entertainment during your stay!”
