Six Mile Cypress Slough (pronounced 'slew') is fun if you're into walking through the 'swamplands' on a mile long boardwalk about 4 feet off the ground. This is a great place to view southern wildlife. I saw my first wild alligator here (and even some lonnnng (yikes) water moccasins. I'm not too into snakes....) Winter months are best for viewing wildlife. Guided tours are offered Wednesday and Saturday mornings.
They also have a picnic area and amphitheater.

Hours: 8:00a.m. - sundown 365 days of the year
