The attraction wasn't necessarily the birds, turtles, fish.... The whole experience lends itself to calm, quiet, introspection. We walked very slowly, stood silently for long periods and soaked in the serenity. The variety of foliage, be it huge ferns or giant cypress trees, was staggering. We spent several hours in quiet contemplation. We'd definitely return.

Came across the place on Tripadvisor thought I would take a look on my way home from Naples to Orlando. We spend a 3 hours here, could have spend longer, it's not a place to rush. A place for lots of wildlife photos, birds, Gators and many other animals. They do guided tours, it's disable friendly, free to get in, parking is $1.00 hour up to $5.00. Nice quiet place to spend half a day.

I live in the area and I cannot get enough of Six Mile Cypress Slough. Even if you have one of those days where all the animals decide to be somewhere else, there is plenty to sustain you. The quiet, the trees, the wonderful air and the simple wonder that something like this exists in the middle of a busy city.

Walking leisurely along the boardwalk and taking in your surroundings is a wonderful way to "de-stress" and gather yourself. Sit down sometimes and just watch, it is quite surprising how much movement there actually is in stillness.

This was a very nice walking tour. Walk on the well constructed deck path through the trees, water, flowers, etc. We saw a few bird species, but due to the rain there was not much wildlife out. If you are a photographer, bring your camera as you will discover many great shots. My wife had a blast taking pictures.
