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.

Everglades National Park reviews
My two boys and I rode the 15 miles at Shark Valley on the rented bikes. We saw so much wildlife. The people who worked there were beyond kind and helpful. I would HIGHLY suggest doing this. more »
Saw lots of gators and crocks! Boat ride in Flamingo was nice. Don't miss the stop at Royal Palms -- do the anhinga trail walk -- it's all boardwalk -- easy walk. Be sure to take mosquito repellant.... more »
Wow, am amazing place. Great walls, great place to see an alligator as well as a crocodile! Amazing, I'll be back with more time next time
It was so packed on Saturday morning we couldn’t even park. I’d recommend going sometime during the week. Make sure you bring some shoes you don’t mind getting muddy.
