Boyd Hill Nature Park
This pleasant park offers varied wilderness habitats sandwiched between a golf course, subdivisions and St. Pete skyline. You can bike through pine flatwoods dominating acres of palmetto or stroll a boardwalk through a willow marsh bordering Lake Maggiore. Swamp woodlands are richly diverse in trees, shrubs and what's hidden under and over. Butterflies abound. And you can check out the gopher tortoise, protected by area scrubland. Guided tours are available, although some cost money, so it's best to bring cash. Rest stops along the way provide cold drinks. Admission: Adults $2, Children (3-16) $1; Under 3 free

Put on your hiking shoes, don some comfy clothes and hit the trails. It'll do wonders for your state of mind.
BTW, when walking through these largely unspoiled acres, keep your eye on the trees. There is a clump of about five trees that will catch your eye -- their limbs are grown together to make them look like one tree! It's quite an unexpected sight! :)
