Visiting the Everglades & More Swamp Walks
There are more places I recommend visiting if you are in the Everglades. Also, if you want to try more swamp walks, I have added them, too.
Fakahatchee Strand Preserve State Park. For swamp walks (the 1st & 3rd Saturdays of the month) visit the Friends of Fakahatchee Strand. If you can get a tour with the park biologist Mike Owen, you are in for a treat.
Big Cypress Visitors Center. This is a super Visitor Center with some excellent displays to get an overview of the Swamp and Everglades. Daily park walks begin November 23rd.
Everglades National Park. Ranger led walks can be found on their website.
For authentic lodging, I recommend the Everglades Rod & Gun Club, located in Everglades City. It’s rustic and historical.
For some authentic Florida food, and located in the Everglades, is Joanie’s Blue Crab Café. She is known for the crab soup and fry bread.
