Everglades National Park

Everglades National Park

Just a short drive from Miami, Everglades National Park protects one of Florida’s most unique natural characteristics. Alligators, crocodiles, snakes, and birds live in these swamplands, which total 1.5 million acres. The entire area is simply a shallow river that flows out to sea.

A Visitors Center, as well as walking routes and boardwalks for wildlife watching, are located within the park. The Anhinga Trail, which begins at the Royal Palm Visitor Center, is one of the park’s most popular walking pathways. This track is less than a mile long, but it passes through area where alligators and other creatures are likely to be seen. This trail is non-strengthening and wheelchair accessible.

An airboat tour is one of the most enjoyable ways to see the Everglades. Visitors can observe alligators and other wildlife on these high-speed boat tours through the marshes and streams. The half-day Miami Everglades Airboat Adventure with Transport includes transportation from your hotel to the park, a 30-minute airboat ride, and a live alligator display at the Everglades Alligator Farm, as well as transportation back to your hotel.
