“unique southwest Florida vacation”
Babcock's Crescent B ranch encompasses a 90,000+ acre area. The ranch is considered an inland, upland, fresh water eco-system. It includes a variety of habitats such as: oak hammocks, pine woods, pastures, wet lands and the 10,000 acre Telegraph Cypress Swamp, so named because telegraph communication lines had to be routed around the swamp. Ranch land extends into Charlotte and Lee counties, in a 153 square mile contiguous block-six times the size of the island of Manhattan. Cowhands on registered quarter horses work the cattle herds much the same as in the past. Horses and dogs are still used today because cattle often roam into areas inaccessible to jeeps and trucks.
When we saw there is a bus tour around the Babcock estate, the kids just insisted that it was a must to go! Me and my wife had our doubts to be honest due to the fact the bus was crowded and it was very warm.
Finally,we took the ride and we really enjoyed ourselves just like our kids did. It wasn't that warm inside the bus (there are no windows), the guide was very informing and she was narrating everything in a simple and easy understandable way.
We got to see a variety of wildlife, turtles, birds, alligators and no need to mention the great views we saw!!
We certainly do not regret going and strongly recommend it to everyone!
