The Best Season of the Year
As most of the country has experienced some harsh winter elements already, Florida Seminole Tourism is gearing up for its busiest part of the year, Winter season. As one of only a handful of subtropical locations in North America, the Florida Everglades boasts mild weather, gorgeous scenery and diverse animal and plant life.The winter season is dry and comfortable, making it one of the best times of year to visit the Seminole Big Cypress Indian Reservation. Sunny days in the 70’s are followed by crisp nights in the low 60’s. Whether your experiencing the wild at Billie Swamp Safari or parking your RV at Big Cypress RV Resort, this time of year is a welcome retreat from the hot, mosquito filled days of summer.
Seminole Big Cypress Indian Reservation makes up 82 square mile in the Florida Everglades, and much of it remains untouched since the Seminoles first arrived over 300 years ago. Since this time the Seminoles have worked hard to protect the land and its ecosystem, so it can be shared with visitors from around the world.
Plentiful Outdoor Adventure
During the winter months visitors can enjoy a wide range of activities as different as the plant and animal life in the Everglades. Birdwatching is an absolute must. Rare birds like the great egret, snowy egret and roseate spoonbill all call the Everglades home. During the winter season several species of birds make their way to the Everglades to escape the cold of the north. For adventure seekers, Billie Swamp Safari is a top attraction for Florida residents and international visitors alike. Guests come and explore 2,200 acres of untamed Florida Everglades that has stood the test of time and experience the wonders of nature. Whether it’s airboat rides, swamp buggy tours or a live alligator show, Billie Swamp Safari is the perfect destination for kids and adults to experience the Florida Everglades.
For a slower pace, guests enjoy the Ah-Tah-Thi-Ki Museum. The museum is home to more than 180,000 unique artifacts, archival items and experiences. Visitors learn about the Seminole people and their rich cultural and historical ties to the Southeast U.S. and Florida. The Museum features five different exhibit galleries for our visitors to explore. The permanent galleries provide a glimpse into life as a Seminole in the late 19th century to provide an historical reference point. A must see is the expansive mile-long boardwalk. Visitors can truly delight in the Florida Everglades flora and fauna, while appreciating their senses of sight, sounds and smell.
With a broad range of activities, the Florida Everglades offer a welcome retreat from the cold winter up north. The dry season allows visitors terrific weather for everyone to be outside and enjoy the unspoiled Everglades.
