Everglades National Park, Florida City

(1,000+ reviews on the web)
National Park Nature / 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. Make Everglades National Park a part of your Florida City vacation plans using our Florida City itinerary builder.

  • I have only entered this park from the water. It is a remarkable place and well worth visiting. Can be reached by car. Flamingo has great facilities with kayak rentals and food and clean restrooms. The park itself is unique it all of the US. The back country of the Florida Keys in the Park is wonderfully beautiful part of Florida Bay with small mangrove islands and turtle grass flats. Beautiful to travel across by boat or kayak. Need a good Map and or gps.
  • Visited Shark River Valley, taking the 2-hour tram tour. Do not miss this one! Reservations needed in winter months 2 to 3 weeks in advance. We were able to get on a tour the same day we visited (the 4 pm tour) without reservations, but it was mid-week in early June when Florida was having record rainfall. Also enjoyed an air-boat ride by private vendor in Everglades city at western edge of park.
  • A MUST DO is Anhinga Trail... at night. After dark the park offers free admission. The trail is close to the entrance. Grab a good flashlight and walk the boardwalk. The gators are extremely active at night and it's an experience you won't forget. Bring bug spray!
  • Really neat to visit, every time that I have gone there I have seen some sort of animal or neat critter. If you are visiting florida this is definitely a must do.
  • Absolutely wonderful in every way. Sincere staff. Good signage. A great experience
