Itinerary

Seasonal Farm Tours

Catered breakfast and fun on the bus as we follow the Caloosahatchee east into the heart and soul of rural Florida. We work diligently with farmers, ranchers, planters and processors to bring you into their world to see first hand the incredible products grown here.  According to season, we may tour a banana plantation or meet a Wagyu rancher or a 5th generation Florida beekeeper. We may plant sugarcane, visit a sugar distillary or taste some raw honeys while watching a live hive through glass.  We will continue east through some of Florida’s premier orange groves and flower farms where, in season, we will hop out at one or two farm stands so bring a little cash and take home some fresh seasonal fruits & veggies.

Roland Martin’s Marina and Tiki

Celebrity angler Roland Martin's Tiki Bar, will welcome us for a taste of Lake O wild gator tacos.  Insider tip: Great shopping at the Marina store for the hard to buy for outdoorsman - or outdoors woman!
Free gator taco appetizer.  Lunch is on your own at the Tiki.

Lake Okeechobee

Also known as the largest lake no one can ever find.  Lake O can be elusive but Joyride has found a wonderful spot to walk the pier and take photos of the lakes immense vistas.  This part of the tour does not run on all farm tours such as Sugarland.

Alva Diner for Dessert

It's a Joyride tradition to finish our day with a little something sweet!  Our Heart of Florida adventure will close with a piece of fresh baked pie, "on the house" at the Alva diner.
Breakfast, excursion tickets, snacks and beverages on the bus included.
