and Eco Tours
Do the Seminoles really wrestle alligators? They sure do. In fact, one of the former Seminole chiefs lost a finger several years ago when he got a little careless with his opponent.
The Seminoles were pioneers in airboat rides through the Everglades, which are now quite common.
truly different, educational and enjoyable, visit the first stop on
our list, Billie Swamp Safari. Spend a night or a weekend.
Also the Ah-Tah-Thi-Ki Museum with the country's largest display in the life and culture of the Florida Seminoles. Tel. 800-949-6101 or 863-983-6101. Website: www.seminoletribe.com/ safari. Billie Swamp Safari is one of my personal favorites and highly recommended.
