If you're interested in seeing something more than alligators, the Tram Ride at Myakka State park provides an interesting introduction to the history and ecology of the park. Learn the secret of what the park looked like 90 years ago. Hint: Nothing like it looks like now..... you'll be surprised. Get a seat on the left side of the tram.... opposite the door as this is the side that the tram guide can see from his seat and will be pointed out most of the trip around the park. The tram will take you away from the lake and back into time.
