Guide to the Lake Okeechobee Area
Bill and Carol Gregware
Okeechobee. The name means big water in the Seminole Indian language. Covering about 730 square miles, Lake Okeechobee is one of Americas greatest natural wonders. Encircling it is the massive Herbert Hoover Dike, one of the countrys greatest man-made wonders.
Okeechobeeland, the area around the great lake, is one of Floridas few remaining undiscovered vacation destinations. It boasts some of the states best birdwatching and fishing territory, fossil-finding areas and Native American Indian mounds, plentiful RV sites and campgrounds, and that easy, slow-paced atmosphere popular with people who go on vacation to really relax.
This book also features a guided driving tour along the highways that encircle the lake and a 110-mile hiking or biking tour on top of the Herbert Hoover Dike, part of the Florida National Scenic Trail.
Bill and Carol Gregware are freelance writers who retired from other careers and moved to Florida several years ago. Entranced by the beauty of their newly-adopted state, the Gregwares spend much of their time traveling, observing, researching, and writing about Floridas natural wonders. They spent much of a year in residence in Okeechobee while collecting data for this book.
