Swamps feature flora and fauna not often found in city confines, where wildlife exploration consists of dodging sharp-edged, windblown newspapers while tracking the endangered and elusive pay phone. Get out of town and explore bog life with today's Groupon: for $9, you get a 90-minute swamp tour with Okefenokee Adventures in Folkston, Georgia (an $18 value). There is a charge of $5 per vehicle upon entering the park.
Proprietors and swamp enthusiasts Chip and Joy Campbell seek to share their passion for Okefenokee's storied wetlands with sightseers looking for a distinctive, interactive experience. Let knowledgeable, accessible guides narrate your tour from comfortable, canopied flat-bottomed boats as you and a band of khaki-hatted sojourners cruise through the lush marshes of the Suwannee Canal, past verdant forests of intertwined trees belting out "Run Through the Jungle" in their best John Fogerty voices. Visit a bevy of creatures like sandhill cranes, egrets, and alligators in their natural habitats while learning that "swamp things" are simply misunderstood people with uncannily green thumbs.
