Here’s Florida’s Top Outdoor Attraction… And You’ll Definitely Want To Do It

When most people think about Florida, a high-speed airboat ride through the swamp is probably one of the first things that comes to mind. As a Florida resident, might think it’s just a way for tourists to gape at gators, but it’s actually something everyone should add to the old bucket list.

You don’t have to travel to the Everglades to try it, either. Central Florida is full of lakes, swamps, and marshes perfect for a thrilling airboat ride. Tours like Wild Willy’s on Lake Tohopekaliga in Saint Cloud offer breathtaking views of Florida’s native plants and wildlife, including bald eagles, blue heron, snail kites, and (of course) alligators. There are so many options available, chances are you’ll find one that’s not too far from home.

Here are some photos of the stunning Florida wildlife spotted on Wild Willy’s Airboat Tours:
