I’d always wanted to see Lake Okeechobee, but I hadn’t made the time to visit despite living only a few hours away for nearly 20 years.
Seeing the nation’s third-largest lake was worth it. Some tips for visiting it:
– Pack a bike. The 110-mile Lake Okeechobee Scenic Trail wraps around the lake on an elevated dike.
– Go early. There isn’t much shade along the trail or pier, so plan to visit in early morning or late afternoon.
