Everglades National Park, Florida City

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

  • Truly a unique and extraordinary ecosystem! A vast wilderness teeming with all kinds of wonderful creatures and sights to behold! I highly recommend taking a stroll down Anhinga Trail, it's an easy walk and you will see lots of wildlife 😊👍 I also would highly recommend driving all the way to Flamingo and kayaking out into Florida Bay, which is a vastly different ecosystem than the beginning or middle parts of the park, it also has awesome sunsets 🌅 😃
  • This park is a lot of fun although riddled with dangerous reptiles. I recommend seeing this part from a boat, they can be rented in multiple places.
  • Best way to enjoy this park is to explore on the water: boat, airboat, kayak. Get on the water and see the wildlife. I recommend going during the winter when the temperatures are enjoyable. Unfortunately having spent a lot of time in the parks of the Western US, I missed access to trails in the nature to hike. There are some predefined paths but it's built and limits your freedom (understandable since there's water everywhere). So again: get on the water to enjoy the park.
  • This park is everything you would want to have in a park amazing camping both with facilities and not make sure to go kayaking also if you love animals nothing even comes close to what you will see on anhinga trail.. if I had three hands it would be three thumbs up
  • Loved this park. So different from the western parks l have seen. Favorite part was the boat ride thru the bayou. Wonderful trip.
