Florida Free Ft. Myers Area Outdoors/Nature

Six Mile Cypress Slough Preserve, Ft. Myers, FL

What is it?:
A swamp but not the kind you would think of. It’s lush and there is a boardwalk-type path throughout the park. Check out the wild gators, birds and otters.

Bottom line:
GO – A beautiful preserve. We’d never seen an otter in the wild before and even without that little encounter, the trees and beauty of nature was worth the trip.

Overall:  ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 💫4.5/5 stars
Pros: The beauty of nature without getting your boots muddy. Lots of wildlife to see.
Cons: Small-ish. 2 hours was enough to see the whole thing.
