If you're looking for wildlife and a chance to experience Florida's natural habitat, set aside a day to tour the swampland. You can find a variety of airboat and lagoon tours around the Space Coast, but one of our favorites is Camp Holly in Melbourne, along the St. Johns River. Camp Holly is also one of the longest standing – since 1923 – and with a reputation to go with that legacy. Book an airboat tour, led by knowledgeable staff who can teach you about the native flora, fauna, birds, fish, snakes, turtles and, of course, alligators. There's a good chance you'll see a gator – or many, right up close. But viewing wildlife isn't all Camp Holly offers. Go hunting or fishing on and around the St. Johns River, grab a cold drink and snack on site and even enjoy live entertainment on the deck.
