Lake Okeechobee Staycation Ideas

Lake Okeechobee Staycation Ideas

Staycation, a period in which you or your family stays home and participates in leisure activities within driving distance and sleeping in your own bed at night, can be a fun way to see things that are right near you. Clewiston, also known as “America’s Sweetest Town,” offers the Sugarland Express tour of a local farm and mill (you even get to chew on some sugarcane) and a three-hour boat cruise that explains the lake’s historic and natural heritage. Also, to learn even more, visit the Clewiston Museum in the old police station and jail. The Seminole Indians originally named the lake “Big Water” and depended on it for food in earlier times. Today, Big Cypress Seminole Reservation lies close to their Big Water. Here visitors can learn more about native culture at the clever Ah-Tah-Thi-Ki Museum. Have a bite at the Swamp Water Café and take an airboat ride to an Indian camp with Billie Swamp Safari. Maybe you want to have a campout for a day or two. Your kids will love the Clewiston/Lake Okeechobee Campground. The campground has a playground, bounce house and game room. You’ll love the pull-thru sites, heated pool and camp store. And don’t forget the Lawrence E. Will Museum located right here in Belle Glade. Their mission is to collect, conserve, display, and organize – for educational and research goals – the artifacts, memorabilia, photographic and written records pertinent to this...
