There is a very nice boardwalk, with native plants and animal life documented on informative signs, and a brief history of the Seminole Indians (the Unconquered), of South Florida.

I was there for the Big Cypress Anniversary celebration. Loads of live music! Great food especially the fry bread. A very good array of crafts and entertainers. The bull riding was fun to watch and the arena put you right in the action.
