The days are finally getting longer and the nights are getting hotter. Summertime is almost here and you undoubtedly have a list of fun to-dos this season. But if there is one thing that should definitely be on your summer bucket list, it ought to be glamping in the Everglades.
If you aren't already familiar, glamping is the upgraded version of camping - you can enjoy most of your modern amenities (sometimes even Wi-fi) while still being more "exposed" to nature.
Everglade Adventure Tours offers guests the chance to experience the Everglades like never before - in Native Chickee cabins. These buildings, complete with thatch roofs and mosquito screens, are styled after the locally residing Miccosukee native American's huts, giving you a camping experience unlike anywhere else.
Guests have the option to rent the cottages, which sleep 3, for $179 a night, or the Chobee which sleep 5, for $199 a night, plus taxes and fees.
According to the information on their website none of the cottages or cabins have running water, but both are situated very near restrooms and hot showers located within the Trail Lakes Campground bathhouse. There is also no electricity - which is a great excuse to keep you living in the moment without constantly checking your social media.
No need to worry about being bored without Wifi - these huts are located within close proximity of the Everglades best scenery including the swamp and grasslands.
Reception has confirmed that these buildings have pretty open availability for the summer months. You can book your stay on their website here.
Disclaimer: We strongly advise that before you go swimming or visit a potentially hazardous location, you check for the most recent updates on potential hazards, security, water quality, and closures. If you do plan to visit a location, respect the environment.
