The River of Grass


Florida’s Everglades.  I can’t think of a better way to bid adieu (or I guess it should be adios) to sunny South Florida, than a ride through the River of Grass with a few friends. Dillon, the third generation of this family-owned business did an excellent job as captain and tour guide, explaining the complex ecosystem to this crowd of locals.  The Coopertown crew has helped with a lot of filming for TV and movies. Currently they are on a TV show in France, can’t remember the name, but it sounds like it’s the French version of Amazing Race.

Riding on an air boat is just plain fun – at any age.DSCN5034

Coopertown Air Boat rides: 11 miles west of the Florida Turnpike on US 41 (Tamiami Trail).  305.226.6048 Call to reserve.  There is also a brief wildlife show and a restaurant with a menu featuring frog legs and gator tail.
