“A unique experience and you can ride a swamp buggy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2013

There is no better experience to watch a fast paced race with swamp buggys. Check the calendar. There will be a racing event the last week of January and March. Swamp buggys, Jeeps and other vehicles going through the Sippy Hole is fun to watch. What better time to go and miss the tourist season. Best secret is this is off season and the Condos rates are cheaper. Google swamp buggy races in Naples for details. Go to Youtube.com and search for swamp buggy races. Usually offers a swamp buggy ride during intermission. They have a museum too.

“Quite an adventure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

Old fashioned Florida tradition. Great fun, but if you have sensitive hears, be sure to bring ear plugs!

“Swamp buggy fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

These races are fun. Don't let the name fool you. The people are nice and its great family fun. We've been twice. It was hot the first time and freezing cold the second time. All was good. We had a lot of fun.

“MUST give this a try. . it's a hoot!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

What a unique, Florida experience. These buggies are things you'll never see anywhere else in the world and the race is a blast. The crowd is nearly as interesting as the race itself! Definitely give this a try.

“Redneck Central”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

This is an event you go to when you're ready to take yourself and those around you less seriously. Show up in your shorts and t-shirts because anything more is probably going to be considered inappropriate. Kids love it and while it can be loud, it's not nearly as loud as it would be if it were inside. You'll want to bring your sunscreen and plenty of money for concessions as it can get a little hot even during the winter months depending on the year and you're probably going to get thirsty. There's also all sorts of things to attract the kiddos and that stuff isn't cheap.
