Everglades National Park, Florida City

4.4
#21 of 247 in Nature in Florida
A vast expanse of pristine wetlands, Everglades National Park holds the distinction of being the largest tropical wilderness in the U.S. Overflow from Lake Okeechobee into the Florida Bay formed these wetlands, which are home to manatees, American crocodiles, Florida panthers, and an array of wading birds, land birds, and birds of prey. The diversity of plant and animal life here has earned the park recognition as an International Biosphere Reserve, a World Heritage Site, and a Wetland of International Importance. It's one of only three places in the world to occupy a spot on all three lists. You'll find trails for hiking and biking in drier sections of the Everglades, while canoeing, kayaking, boating, and fishing are popular along the many waterways. December to March is the most popular time to visit due to comfortable temperatures, drier air, and lower mosquito activity.

  • In many ways to enjoy the Park, though, we decided to bike. Around the trails 15 miles, around 2 hours long. Alligator lying all over the place. At the halfway point lookout.

  • The Everglades is amazing! Visiting the Everglades is a must for anyone who enjoys the outdoors. I went with some friends to go kayaking but we also did some exploring prior to launching. We ended up meeting some really cool people including an awesome park ranger and someone random who lived on an island with us for a few days. The wildlife is amazing, completely different than Indiana (where I'm from). It was truly a once in a lifetime experience and I know that if I go back it'll be a completely new experience.
  • Its a great place to see up close some of the prettiest wildlife from Florida and lots of fun for the kids, Photography is a must; bring your prime lens or a larger zoom. I photographed a male and female Cardinal. I haven't seen these birds sense the early 70's in the Miami area so cool.
  • Had a great time visiting the trails and the campgrounds. Some of the trails are still affected by Irma's aftermath. It may take some time before they reopen completely. Still offers plenty to see, hike, and amazing wildlife, and bird watching. Photographers are encouraged to bring their best rigs. The sunset scenes are especially amazing.
  • The facilities are still recovering from the hurricane, but this is a very unique and beautiful national treasure. Well worth a visit. The camp grounds are well laid out with plenty of space between sites. You can't beat the price. A pull through with 50/30 electric is only $30 ($15 with senior pass).
  • Always a good time. Wildlife is everywhere. Nice trails for hiking and for strollers and people with disabilities. Fun for all ages. Exotic plants and wildlife you're sure to see!
