Things to do in Lake Okeechobee

From birds and bobcats to the odd manatee, 730-square-mile Lake Okeechobee is a sprawling waterway you can hike around (there’s a 100-mile-plus trail), or skim over by boat. Fishing’s also a popular activity—its shallow waters make it a great place for first-timers.
