Create an itinerary including Everglades National Park
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.

  • Never been anywhere quite like this, obviously a pretty stark difference from anywhere else in the US, but super cool. As terrifying as the alligators can be, they are super chill, I had more of a problem with the insects honestly. The mangrove tunnels are absolutely a once in a lifetime experience, would totally go again
  • I just went today and I had a great time! I visited the Shark Valley part of the park. I did a walk along the trolley/bike trail and saw some alligators. There was even a gator on the side of the trail that was only 7 feet from me and sat in the sun. I never thought that I would ever be that close to a gator. I also saw some gators down the trail. I only had a couple of hours in the park, but the minimum time produced a great experience.
