Okay, we’ll admit it, the Koreshan State Historic Site has a bit of an unusual history. In the late 1800s, one Cyrus Reed Teed brought the followers of his new religion, Koreshanity, down to Estero, FL, to form a self-contained, self-preserving colony. And what did followers of Cyrus’s religion believe? Basically, that the entire universe existed within a huge, hollow sphere. Questionable science aside, what’s left of the Koreshan’s colony is worth a visit; check out the turn-of-the-century bakery, machine shops, founder’s house, and Planetary Court (this is where the Planetary Council – made up of seven women who represented the seven planets of the zodiac – would convene to run the colony’s affairs, in case you were wondering. We definitely were). Aside from the awesome and kookily-named historic buildings, the park offers ample opportunities for hiking, boating, fishing, and more – there’s even a designated running trail. Try to visit in the winter, when you can spot manatees floating through the warm, brackish water of the Estero River. End your day by watching the sun sink beneath the horizon – which Cyrus and his Koreshans once tried to prove curved upward. Oh, Cyrus.
