The Six Mile Cypress Slough Preserve is a natural animal corridor between northern Lee County and Estero Bay. You can see alligators, wild pigs, otters, and more. During the dry season (October to June), birds like herons and egrets flock to the flag ponds. A 1.2-mile boardwalk winds through the 2,200-acre wetland, and includes a photo blind to get up-close photographs of the animals, and two observations towers. There are guided tours year-round, and self-guided tour brochures. Parking is $.75 per hour, maximum $3 (cash only). Bring food and drinks. Call to know the open hours.
