Great Redneck Fun in Naples! If you ever want to see Florida like it used to be, go see the Swamp Buggies at least once, then get back into your 4x4 and head down to Everglades City for a beer and gator bites! Be a Florida Cracker for a day and skip 5th Avenue for a change.

Picture a fair grounds with a very big swamp set up before plenty of bleachers. Now add some large and loud 'buggys' that look more like rocket ships with big wheels that race around a watery 'track' in the swamp and you have some idea of the mud buggy races. The day we went was sunny and warm (bring a hat as there is literally no shade). There is plenty of free parking, but get there early as the parking lot fills up. The gates open at 10:30 AM, but the racing doesn't start until noon or so and ends sometime after 4 PM. There are plenty of vendors offering an array of fair-type food, hot dogs, sausages, gator, steak sandwich, popcorn, cotton candy etc plus beer at a reasonable price ($4 for a good size plastic cup). Also, the food is not overpriced. We got delicious barbecue beef sandwiches for $4. If you have a sore back bring a bleacher seat or pad. There are plenty of porta-potties available, but at times there is a line to go. In addition to food, there are vendors selling hats, shirts and other clothing. It cost about $15 to get in and I recommend buying your tickets online in advance to avoid the lines buying tickets at the gates. This is a great fundraiser for organizations selling food and for the mud buggy park itself. You cannot bring in coolers or chairs. I didn't see many small children. I suspect they wouldn't find sitting there a whale of a good time. I saw many handicapped folks enjoying the day. It is certainly handicap accessible.

Think NASCAR in the swamp. Four, six and eight cylinder modified swamp buggies go around the course two times. The water is to six feet deep. You are really close to the action in the grandstands. Admission was $17, parking free and lots of concessions with food to eat. I especially loved the Gator Bites with hot sauce. Everything was reasonably priced

Nowhere else in the world can you see this form or exciting entertainment. Extremely modified vehicles in all shapes and sizes race through a 3 to 5.5 feet of bog water and mud. It's loud, it's exciting, it's entertaining and it's about as local as you can get. Tickets are $17.00 and kids 12 and under get in for free. All kinds of food and drink, barbeque, burgers, hot dogs, fried okra, sausage, funnel cakes and lots of people watching too.

It would be pretty hard to describe a swamp buggy race to a mid-westerner. So when someone told be about it I had to see it for myself, and it's a definite "must see" while in Naples. It was a fun day seeing these crazy machines go around a track in the water and mud. Exciting race atmosphere with lots to eat and drink. Will go back again, but next time I'll wear more camo.
