In our group we had 4 kids ranging from 3-5 years old. For the price of the groupon we could not go wrong here! Tons to see and do and we didn’t even finish seeing everything because the kids got tired. The boat ride was perfect length for their age group, not to long to lose their interest but not to short to miss stuff. Remember to check out your map they give you of where to site see. The crock show was really entertaining too :-)

A very nicely designed museum with great information about the Seminole Tribe and their history in the Everglades and Big Cypress region. Met a wonderful guy named Daniel who had constructed a replica hunting camp and was very forthcoming with information. Great experience! There is...MoreThank you for your review! You are correct--the cypress dome looks very different during the rainy season and it's really quite stunning! I will pass along your kind words to Daniel, he is a wealth of knowledge!

In April I had my fourth hunt with Mark Clemmons. Each one was a perfect experience, even though I was not always the perfect shooter. I'm a fair-chase fanatic, that's the way I was brought up.Mark runs the only true fair chase operation I have found in Florida. All wild hogs on thousands of acres of wide-open country. The other places I have seen in the state give hunting a bad name--despite their website claims, they are little more than killing fields run by shysters, to put it nicely. I've hunted hogs all over the South and TX with some very fine guides in beautiful country, but Mark is at the top of my list.

I did the tandem jump with Edward and he was awesome---I can't believe my giant smile the whole ride down (great pics!) -- even crouched in the doorway, which is the only uhhhhhh, scary part. Surprisingly NOT scary overall, just exhilarating and SO FUN! Thanks for offering a Groupon, too….now I wish I'd bought a second jump the same day. My friends think I'm a 62 year old rock star chick now.

Amazing experience! Have always been afraid to skydive and saw this as great alternative. And it is!! From first phone call, service was top notch. Angie was very professional and set us up with only 1 days notice. Upon arrival, rest of staff was very enthusiastic and helpful. After an introductory video, we were offered upgrades of time over the basic 1000' flight, and video options. We took the 2000' option which was well worth it. Doubled the time in air and gave us a view above the soaring birds. Our pilot was very nice and gave us the maximum experience along with new knowledge of how the gliders work and even let us take control for a few seconds. I highly recommend this as a bucket list experience! Worth the drive from either coast. You will be talking about it for a long time!

Sugarland Tours

Reviewed By Bunmaster2014 - Boca Raton, Florida

Interesting tour. The highlight for me was the viewing of the sugar cane harvesting, which takes place from October to March. Some fields are burned from day to day after appropriate permission is obtained from the regulating agency. Not all the sugar cane fields, therefore, are burned simultaneously. Sugar is a grass. It is about the most efficient plant for converting sunlight and carbon dioxide into sucrose, provided other nutrients are present in the soil.

There was also a viewing from the bus of oranges being processed.

A worthwhile and informative tour.

Clewiston Museum

Reviewed By Felicia B - Fort Pierce, Florida

A pleasant surprise was this attraction featuring local history and artifacts from the surrounding areas. Fossils, photos and Native American memorabilia are prominently displayed. There's a gift shop.
The best part was when the curator came out to give a detailed explanation of the exhibit and general history of the state and this locale in particular. Clearly he was knowledgeable and loves his job
The day was part of a larger experience sponsored to promote Big Sugar. The overall experience was that this is a well organized professional endeavor to give the industry a better image. The bus tour, lunch at an area country club and museum were part of a free all day tour

We attended the 119th anniversary celebration for the Big Cypress Reservation. There were several vendors selling jewelry, tee shirts, and food (primary barbecue). The food was good. The main event was a Montgomery Gentry/Gary Allan concert held in a field near the Junior Rodeo Arena. The staff handled everything well and respected those who had sat in line for several hours when they opened the gates to allow us to take our bag chairs up near the stage. The reservation was very clean with beautiful newer buildings.
