Marsh Landing Adventures: Experience Real Florida

Life Travel

A view like this is worth waking up early for. Waking up early has never been easy for me, but I can’t complain when my morning consists of gliding across the headwaters of the Everglades on an airboat ride with Marsh Landing Adventures.   There is something so relaxing and peaceful about an airboat ride; maybe it’s the fresh air or maybe it’s the spectacular views.  Well, no matter what it is, I know that after being on my fair share of…
