There are no fences or safety precautions, so it's a little scary, but so worth it! We went in February and saw a couple of alligators.

Short little scenic walk along the water. Saw one gator floating along...keeping up with us. Pretty sure he was sizing up our kids for lunch haha! It's worth a stop even if just for a few minutes to get out and stretch your legs.
