Great place to visit especially if you've had it with strip malls, shopping centers etc. Regardless, it was beautiful to see so many different types of birds and reptiles and we saw an alligator (or was it a crocodile?) up close which the kids loved! Also, very much appreciated that there were many different options in terms of time/distance of walks so we could manage a lot of different ages in our group. The information center was great and worth stopping in either before or after your visit. One tip is that there are few places to get shade on the boardwalks so bring a hat etc. Have fun!
