One of My Favorite Activities in Florida

There are lots of activities to enjoy in the Sunshine State. Most people think of the usual ones like swimming, visiting Disneyworld, fishing, or embarking on a cruise.

Florida sceneOne that most people may not consider is gator watching along the Tamiami Trail.  During a recent drive along this southern route between Miami and Naples, we saw dozens of the giant reptiles sunning themselves along the canals in the swampland.  Granted, the sunning of the alligators is not a very exciting sight to see, but when they get warmed up, they start crossing the roads and swimming around.  

Another good way to see the alligators is by taking an airboat tour of the Everglades.  You can find many airboat tour companies just by watching the billboards along the highways.  In fact, there are several that can be hired on the Tamiami Trail alone.  I've never personally taken an airboat ride, but it sure looks fun to me!

If looking for gators are not your cup of tea, the bird-watching is spectacular.  You can see many different wading birds, hawks, eagles, and lots more.  Many people stop to photograph the birds in the trees that grow very close to the highway.  It's amazing how much more you see when you slow down to merely look.

All of us here at Lifestyles Direct Tan Through Swimwear hope that you make time for a Florida vacation soon.  There is lots to do and see.  However, if you go, don't forget to stock up on your tan through bikinis and one piece swimsuits.  There's no sense in wasting all that time in the sunshine!
