Filed under: Florida News,Orlando Attractions,Orlando Vacation Tips |

A visit to Boggy Creek Airboat Rides in the Southport area of Kissimmee is about much more than a simple airboat ride to look at alligators on Lake Tohopekaliga. Of course, one of the main reasons to go is to ride an airboat but spending a morning or afternoon at Boggy Creek is also an educational journey into past times in old Florida.

Boggy Creek Airboat Rides is located on the south side of the 42 mile in circumference Lake Tohopekaliga or Lake Toho, as the natives call it. Covering 22,700 acres the lake is known for its bass fishing, alligators, turtles, exotic bird life and other nature activity and while an airboat ride is a lot of fun, a visit to the Native American Village at the attraction is an essential add-on to your trip. It’s here that you will experience a once in a lifetime opportunity to learn about a life that is almost extinct today.

In this day and age, we are used to going to the big box stores to get every provision we might need but back in the 1700’s it was very different for Little Big Mountain’s Jororo tribe who lived in the area. Little Big Mountain (pictured above) gives a fascinating and often amusing talk on what life was like, how the Indian people survived and the tricks of the trade they employed to lead a prosperous fulfilling life without computers, TV’s, groceries and everything else that we take for granted in modern times. 

Dressed in tribal clothing, Little Big Mountain leads you through the whole gambit, from living conditions to how the tribe survived in that day and age. You’ll learn everything you can want to know about why full body jewellery was employed to be functional as well as beautiful, through to making tools and weapons as he demonstrates how things were done and why the tribe lived the way it did in the Kissimmee River area.

A visit to Boggy Creek Airboat Rides is a great way to spend a half to three quarter day while visiting the Orlando area. There’s a lot more to do and you can learn more as well as obtain tickets at their website  www.BoggyCreekAirboats.com
