A few great places to visit...
Myakka River State Park
This is one of the oldest parks in Florida. There are a ton of activities available to guests, as well as a canopy walkway to get a better view from above the hammock. Try to plan your next camp out here!
Rookery Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve
Rookery Bay Reserve is 110,000 acres of pure, coastal beauty. A great location for learning about estuarine habitats, wildlife, and a fun place to sail.

Big Cypress National Preserve
Definitely one of the best places to visit! We were so welcomed by the Clyde Butcher Art Gallery staff and learned a lot about native orchids, alligators and other flora and fauna.
Check out Clyde Butcher's classic black and white photography at https://clydebutcher.com/. Taking a trip there was unforgettable as the staff gave us and awesome swamp tour and let us camp outside the art gallery!
Fakahatchee Strand Preserve State Park
Also, known as, “the Amazon of North America”, this park is full of diversity and houses a high level of rare and endangered tropical plant species. It’s a great place to see panthers, Florida Black Bears, and other wildlife.

Shark Valley is in the center of the “True Everglades”. We road our bikes 15 miles to get to a tower that overlooks a great vast of the river of grass. There are also trams available for those who aren't able to bike the whole way. It was so dry that alligators were found in the last standing puddles. It is also a great place for birding!
