Everglades National Park, Florida City

4.4
#22 of 183 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.

  • The good news: The Everglades NP is largely open to Irma. The biggest limitation may be that the Shark Valley is still closed and probably only in January reflected opens. The most closures are due to high water level and that runs well time off only slowly, at the Flamingo point, the visitor center is badly damaged but up there, you can go and admire the nature. Annoying though that you only on direct demand said get what is just locked or open... Counts all especially now incidentally: insect repellent (OFF! I use 40%) do not forget.

  • We thought we take full eyes coming here and feast was making pictures. And it is missed. We have a few herons, but that's all. For the rest they did a big cleanup following Hurricane job but it is still impossible to go beyond the visitor center, which is closed, very damaged. May has a another season.

  • Beautiful nature, something for everyone. We have done an airboat tour, a unique experience. The water was what at the low end, so we have no alligator seen. To an alligator farm. Even just through it away by car is an experience in itself.

  • Had a wonderful time on a Tram Tour. The driver and guide were great. The guide as very knowledgeable. The driver, who also was the wildlife spotter did a great job. Got to see many things, including Alligators, which was our main reason for visiting.
  • We stopped by the Shark Valley Tram Tours and had a great 2 hour tram ride. Our guide was so knowledgeable and made the tour fun and entertaining. We were lucky we saw plenty of wildlife as it had rained just before the tour started. Be sure to take your bug spray the mosquitoes are fierce.
  • Unforgettable experience! From the iconic cypress tree to the interesting wetlands, the landscape is both grand and beautiful at the same time. It feels like I went back to the dream in my childhood!
  • Love this park. Most of it requires a boat of some sort to truly appreciate. Whether a kayak or small skiff there is so much more to see beyond parking lots and drive.
  • 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.
