The trails and boardwalk here are excellent. This is an amazing opportunity to walk through a swamp without getting your feet wet. Lots of wildlife visible - we sighted everything from water snakes to wood storks. Great family-friendly interactive education center too.

The only charge is for parking which maxes out at $5 for a whole day - more than you are likely to need. There are docent lead tours each morning at no charge. I believe they last a couple of hours. There is also a brochure... More
