Fodor's Review

For taking home swamp memories in stark black and white, you can't do better than picking up a postcard, calendar, or more serious pieces of artwork by photographer Clyde Butcher at his namesake trailside gallery. Butcher, a big guy with an even bigger beard, is an affable personality renowned for his knowledge of the Glades and his ability to capture its magnetism through a large-format lens. Even if you can't afford his big stuff, you're warmly invited to gaze. Out back, Butcher and his wife, Niki, also rent a bungalow ($225 per night, October–April) and a cottage ($350 per night, year-round). Ask about Clyde's private photography Swamp Walk Tours, bookable in advance, September through March. You'll need a hat, long pants, old sneakers, and—because you will get wet—spare, dry clothing.
