While spending a few days here in Okeechobee, we found a few things to do and a nice restaurant. Our first stop was Taylor’s Fruit Stand / Air boat Ride. The 45 minute ride was fun and a way to get that up close view of the swamp lands. We went mid day so the gators were in the shade and out of site, that was not our intent but I did not mind.
As I have mentioned a few times, we like to eat in our RV, but on that day we had lunch at Lightsey’s Fish Company & Seafood Restaurant on State Road 78, in West Okeechobee, and just a few miles up from the Taylor’s fruit stand . We ate on the screened in porch and with a light breeze it could not have been nicer.
