We stopped here while on vacation and took one of the 9:30 AM guided walks, It was a great escape from the hustle of Route 41. Our guide was a retired teacher, and she obviously loved sharing her favorite swamp with others. We saw many birds, 3 baby gators, turtles...and that was just the wildlife. The guide also gave excellent descriptions of the plant life and how the park came to be.
If we were to spend more time in the Fort Myers area, the boardwalks here would see us on a fairly frequent basis. The "green building" that is the interpretive center is another tour in itself!
