Welcome to Lake Jesup, a vast mirror of a lake (except on windy days) with the dubious distinction of having more alligators than any other lake in the ENTIRE STATE OF FLORIDA. Let that sink in a minute while we tell you about Black Hammock Adventures. A decidedly old-Florida attraction that's part wildlife exhibit, part airboat- and pontoon-ride purveyor and part restaurant/bar with one of the most impressive sunset-viewing locations in Central Florida. Airboat rides depart daily, pontoons, which are slower, more stable, very relaxing, go out for weekend sunset cruises. Call the office for details. Pop into the Lazy Gator bar before or after your outing. Or the Black Hammock Restaurant (helmed by a former Executive Chef at Epcot's Chefs de France). Or both. It's friendly. It's local. And if you dig fried gator tail, it's the best in town. Live music every weekend.
- Outdoor Activities: "The gator population of Lake Jesup is not an urban legend. Even if you're just coming to the Lazy Gator for a beer: leave your dog home!"
- Best for Outdoor Activities Because: Sunset cruises + kitschy gift shop + tiki bar + fried gator tail = Black Hammock Adventures in the top 10.
