Why Everglades Holiday Park is Better than the Zoo
Located on more than eight million acres in Florida, the Everglades is a subtropical, wetland ecosystem that is home to 67 threatened or endangered species.
While the Everglades starts near Orlando and goes all the way down to Florida Bay, Everglades Holiday Park is in sunny Fort Lauderdale. Our park spans over 29 acres of wetlands and offers a unique view for those who have never toured the Everglades, or locals who don’t own airboats to be able to experience the Everglades and an airboat ride at the same time. However, Everglades Holiday Park is not just about touring the wetlands via airboat, we offer a few other attractions as well.
Some of these attractions include animal encounters, gator shows, boat rentals, and more. Go wild with our all-new Animal Encounters program! You’ll get to spend time and interact with 5 animals for 45 minutes. You’ll also receive professional photos of your Animal Encounter to remember your experience. The gator shows that take place in the Gator Pit are world-famous. They are 15-20-minute family-friendly presentations that include tricks, stunts, and information about the mission of the Gator Boys Alligator Rescue. Everglades Holiday Park is home to some of the best freshwater fishing, so rent a boat and spend time with family on the water!
The everglades airboat tours at Everglades Holiday Park are the longest in the area - 60 minutes! We will get you as close as possible to all that these amazing wetlands offer. Everglades Holiday Park is a hands-on experience for people of all ages. You can come to Everglades Holiday Park ready for a fun-filled day of unique attractions that you won’t be able to find at a zoo, and have an experience that is one-of-a-kind and hands-down one of the best things to do in Fort Lauderdale.This entry was posted in Everglades Holiday Park Blog, on .
