My husband and I have visited Six Mile Cypress Slough Preserve close to half a dozen times over the last three years. It is just a short drive from downtown Fort Myers and Fort Myers Beach. It is always a surprise what wildlife you will see there. We have seen baby as well as adult alligators, cotton mouth snakes (two in one day!), ibis, lizards, turtles, and even wild baby boar. The round-trip walk on the boardwalk through the preserve is approx. one mile and features a larger large lake, some smaller ponds, and, of course, the remaining area is slough. In the wet season (we were just there a few weeks ago), water covers the entire area. It is definitely a worthwhile way to spend some time while visiting Southwest Florida. Parking is $1 an hour and there is no admittance fee. Check it out!
