Why Choose the Everglades?

Students, wildlife enthusiasts, thrill seekers and even seniors have been known to explore the Florida Everglades. It’s a magical destination, filled with unique plants, exciting animals and unexpected thrills. But what is about the infamous wetland that draws hundreds of thousands of visitors each year? Here’s a snapshot of what you can expect to see and do on a day trip to the Everglades.

Guided Airboat Tours The Everglades stretches for miles – one and a half million acres to be exact. How does one travel across this vast “River of Grass”? By airboat of course! Perhaps the most memorable part of exploring the ‘glades is the airboat experience. Unlike traditional boats, airboats are powered not by gas engines, but air! And that’s what makes an airboat adventure so exciting.

Large vessels powered by massive fans glide effortlessly across the shallow waters in search of alligators, exotic birds, snakes and more. Airboat tours are family friendly, and loads of fun – even for the little ones. The best place to book a tour? With hour long narrated tours, Everglades Holiday Park in Fort Lauderdale is a family favorite, offering some of the most skilled and knowledgeable captains in the area.

Exciting Alligator Shows Another memorable experience in the Everglades has to do with the most famous South Florida resident – the American alligator. Live alligator shows are always popular with visitors to the Everglades looking to see a few native creatures in action. Depending on where you choose to watch a show, you’re likely to see a few daring tricks, learn some interesting information on the gators and maybe even hold a baby for a picture! Everglades Holiday Park is the home of the Gator Boys Alligator Rescue, the talented crew known for rescuing nuisance gators on Animal Planet’s reality show, “The Gator Boys”. Visit the park for an airboat ride and the show is complementary, starring the original Gator Boys crew of course.
