The visitor center was closed but the boardwalk was amazing. The only reason I didn’t rate it higher is I wish the visitors center had longer hours.

If you're looking for something different to do this is a nice walk. It goes on for miles and you'll see gators, all different kinds of birds, turtles, among other things. Its a nice relaxing walk

With much of Florida paved over or transformed into manicured spaces, it is easy to forget it was once a swampland. A visit to green cay will remind you of how things used to be. Located south of palm beach, this centre features several miles...More
