“Surprisingly Wonderful Experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

Although we have lived in South Florida for almost 50 years, we had never been to the Village
until recently when our Colorado granddaugters (ages eight and nine) were here visiting.
We expected the worst: long lines, hokey exhibits and "shows," typical mediocre-to-bad food, and expensive, phony trinkets for sale. Quite to the contrary, however, we found a highly attractive and super-clean complex; a wonderful airboat ride; a clever and educational performance in the alligator pit; a museum full of wonderful history, including in particular the
many black and white historical photos of Miccosukee chiefs, children, and families; and even a pretty good restaurant and interesting store selling various authentic trinkets.
I highly recommend this visit for children of all ages!

“Worth a stop”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

Not the greatest place in the world, and rather far... But if you crave good fry bread, gator, frog legs and cat fish, its quite good all prepared by authentic....Cuban refugees working for the Native Americans'! LOL. The festival is probably best time to go, otherwise its just another sleepy little town that just happens to be mostly Native Americans. Worth a visit for festival times.

“Miccosukee Airboat Rides”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

My family and I had an unforgettable experience on the airboat ride. Our guide Elvis took us to a mid-swamp village where several alligators had made home. We saw an alligator mom with babies and the guide attracted the big alligator by making sounds. The grasslands are tribal property and preserved in their original state. Beautiful vistas and horizon. The overall experience was superb and at a modest price. We did not have enough time to visit the store and tribal village across the highway, but if we ever visit again we will visit the village too.
