FAIR WARNINGS - There is a huge maze of drainage canals, ditches, channels, and waterways to help keep the land from flooding. We don't recommend that anyone go swimming in those waters. Gators, Snakes, Snapping Turtles , and other wild life live in there. They might look friendly, but they are not! They are hungry and will take from you only a limb if your lucky enough to escape. Only go swimming at the gulf beaches maybe with the dolphins or a swimming pool, or even Sun Splash Water Park. Fire ants can be of concern as well, just be sure to check for them prior to sitting on the ground.
