Everglades National Park, Florida City

4.5
#19 of 280 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.

  • This place is great. Far away from everything and everyone with all types of wild life everywhere. You can catch a tram and learn about the amazing ecosystem that is the Everglades.
  • What a wonderful National Park! Strongly recommend you try to reserve your tour. Don't be discouraged by the somewhat limited parking at the Visitors Center. There are also designated spots on the tour for "walk on guests." That is how we made it, also just waited in the for parking. The two hour tour was amazing and our guide was so knowledgeable!!!
