A walking tour is a fabulous way to immerse yourself in the beauty of Southwest Florida. Here are 5 benefits you’ll get from taking a walking tour through the gorgeous Sunshine State:

It’s the Healthiest Tour Out There!

Walking in nature isn’t just fun— it’s good for you too! A walking tour is a great way to get your body moving, breathe some fresh air, and enjoy the Florida sunshine. Not to mention, you are sure to feel accomplished after your tour.

A Walking Tour Makes Learning Fun

Don’t think a biology or history lesson during your vacation or day off sounds fun? You might be surprised! During Babcock Ranch walking tours, you’ll learn all about the history of the area and the flora and fauna that call these ecosystems home. However, you’ll be having so much fun— you’ll forget you are even learning!

You’ll Snap Some Fabulous Photos

While the specialty photography tour at Babcock Ranch is aboard one of the fun swamp buggies— you can turn any Babcock Ranch walking tour into a photography tour by bringing your camera! There are no restrictions on what you can take photos of during the tour, so snap away! Landscapes, animals, and flowers are all lovely subjects for walking tour pics. Get an idea of the photos you may be able to snap on your walking tour by viewing the Babcock Ranch walking tour photo gallery.

The Animals Won’t Hear You Coming

If you are looking to sneak up on an animal— the free Babcock Ranch self-guided walking tours are the perfect fit! On this tour, you can go out in nature without making a peep. No engines, no tour guide explanations, just you and the great outdoors! A tour like this may be your best chance at seeing a shy bird that quickly flutters away at the sound of approaching danger or even seeing a larger prey mammal that may normally be hiding when the noisier tours come through.

You Can Take A Tour Day or Night

Most eco tours close their doors at night— but not at Babcock Ranch! The Sounds of the Night walking tour is the perfect walking tour for those looking to see Florida’s wildlife from a totally new perspective. During your 90-minute tour, you’ll listen to frogs, hear gators splash into the water, and possibly even catch a glimpse of an elusive nocturnal critter. This tour is offered on the last Saturday of every month at Babcock Ranch.
