Big Cypress Swamp Welcome Center

Big Cypress Swamp Welcome Center Review

As a sister to the Oasis Visitor Center, the newer Big Cypress Swamp Welcome Center on the preserve's western side has lots of information, restrooms, picnic facilities, and a 70-seat auditorium. An outdoor breezeway showcases an interactive Big Cypress watershed exhibit, illustrating Florida water flow. Love manatees? Here you'll find a platform for viewing these intriguing mammals that are attracted to warm water. (They were possibly once mistaken for mermaids by thirsty or love-starved ancient sailors.)
