This is the best place to watch a sunset & get a beer. I've never taken the airboat ride, but it's a beautiful lake and the boats look well maintained.

We stopped by to watch the sunset. There are beautiful areas to watch from. You will see gators everywhere along with some birds. The view of the sunset across the lake is something you could never get tired of.
