The 4,700-acre Crescent J Ranch is a nature preserve that offers a chance to see native wildlife, Florida flora, and a working cattle ranch by guided tour. Options include touring by horseback (must reserve at least 24 hr. in advance) or by Safari coach, a funky buggy that puts riders on a perch 10 feet above sea level. Allow a half-day or longer to get here, take the tour, and see the grounds, which also include a pony riding ring, hiking trails, and a petting zoo.
