This is a great place to spend the day: there are walking trails on a boardwalk over the water, airboat rides (the absolute funnest thing), swamp buggie rides (this would be great to get around Miami traffic!), shows, animal enclosures, and you can even spend a night in a Chickee for about $35 (I didn’t do that, but I plan to soon!). There are a bunch of other things to do that I haven’t mentioned… for more details visit the official website: http://www.seminoletribe.com/safari/
Other things I did that day… ate alligator (soooo yummy! Tastes like a mix between chicken and fish) and fed an ostrich (hurt my hand, but great).
The drive there is part of the fun…but here is a piece of advice. Do NOT speed through Clewiston, which is the Indian reservation. Once you start to see houses, make sure to slow down to the appropriate speed limit. My boyfriend and I got pulled over =(over 6 years ago
