Thank you for the excellent review. Good advice about bringing water. Important to stay hydrated. (We do sell it in the Nature Store if anyone forgets.) Thanks again.

You can see and hear the Alligators , lots of wild life and green trees. When I went was a little hot and humid but I'm planning on going back next month which will be a little cooler.

I took the guided walk around the Corkscrew Swamp sanctuary with Dick and his wife as our guides. We learned a huge amount about the place, its origins, the flora and fauna and we saw beautiful birds everywhere. I cannot praise this enough.

There were guided tours and very informative; we went at it alone and it was about 2 hours plus, lots to read and see and worth every minute. Plan on about 3 hours, there is so much to take in!
