Canoe Trails  (4 Answers)

Hi,

My wife and me wish to go on a Canoe trip in the end of April 2014. As far as we know there are only two options for that: Flamingo or Gulf Coast.

Which one is better?

Is there a chance of low water level in the end of the dry season?

Thanks

Help Needed!  (5 Answers)

Hi,

We are coming to Florida in December after spending 3 nights in NYC, we are then sailing with Carnival to Bahamas and on arrival back to Miami we were looking to drive to Sarasota for a few nights before spending 2 weeks in Orlando.

I thought it would be nice to visit the Everglades on the way and wondered about maybe staying overnight somewhere.

I remember visiting as a child but don't remember what we did there!

Can anyone tell me what there is to do with 2 12 year olds?

Worth going in late June?  (6 Answers)

Given the humidity and the bugs, is it really worth trying to spend a day in the Glades with my wife and teenage son? I've been told that the weather and biters make it not worthwhile at that time of year.

We are first time visitors from WI, should we stay at the Flamingo Lodge, Marina,out?  (4 Answers)

Hi,

My lover and I are flying standby to RSW (Fort Myers Airport) this friday. We are on a time budget and price budget. This is our first time traveling together. We live in the country close to Lake Pepin on the Mississippi River.

This is Jeffrey's first time to Florida and Rebecca's first time to plan a trip on a budget.

Should we stay at the Flamingo Lodge and Marina and outpost?

How much should it cost per nite?

We are so excited to get away, we are in our mid forties and healthy but not looking for dangerous adventure. Just beauty and sun and nature.

Thank you for your time.

We leave Thurs. 25th at nite or Friday AM 26th from Minneapolis ST. Paul. and stay till Monday 29th.

Kind regards,
Jeff and Rebecca from Stockholm WI

Snorkle options from Flamingo Area of Everglades  (4 Answers)

My husband and I will be traveling through Florida end of December. We will be in St Augustine, maybe Miami or Florida City, before camping in the Everglades. We have reservations at Flamingo Campground. We have a friend in Key West with snorkle trip options, but we understand it will be an extremely busy time of year both to travel there or to join a boat trip snorkeling. Are there any options from Southern Florida Mainland? We will be taking walks, nature watching..is it warm enough for tent camping and swimming? Thanks in advance.

Best way to explore everglades - Airboat or ?  (7 Answers)

We are 4 guys looking to see the everglades for a ½ to a full day.

We will be driving from Orlando to Miami, not sure where the best place to explore the park is.

We will be in Miami so a drive from there the the everglades would be fine as well.

I would love to see the nature, but think i would be scared ***less for snakes and alligators in a Canoo, so a safe but fun way would be prefered.

Thanks

Everglades in late October  (1 Answer)

My company is doing an offsite in Miami in late October, and I think I'm going to stick around for a 1-2 day trip to the Everglades. I need your help with a couple of questions:

1. What are the most important things to do? My travel philosophy is neither super touristy nor super roughin' it -- i.e. i want to taste the real thing but don't particularly like to hike.

2. How bad are the mosquitos in late october? I just came back from 2 days in the amazon with 31 mosquito bites (scratch scratch). better or worse?

3. Anyone wanna come with me? None of my white-collar yuppie-type coworkers are the least bit interested, and i wouldn't mind some company (23, female, smoker -- on the prowl for gators, not hook-ups).
