If you’re traveling through South Florida, one of the best places to check out is the Everglades. With stunning vegetation, incredible wildlife and some of the most amazing sights in the Sunshine State, the Everglades is a must see. If you’re wondering what there is to do in the Everglades, here are a few ideas to get you started.
Explore Unique Flora and Fauna
There’s a good reason why the Everglades is a popular tourist spot. Home to more than 750 animal species, nowhere else on Earth is it possible to see such an eclectic mix of wildlife including the American alligator, great egret and more. In fact, the ecosystem supports 14 threatened or endangered species, making it next to impossible not to come face-to-face with a few rare creatures. But the fauna is only half of it, because Everglades flora is also pretty spectacular. Sawgrass is one of the oldest green plants in the world – a fantastic visual you don’t want to miss.
Capture Once-In-a Lifetime Photos
Why buy prints of America’s wetland when you can capture your own in person? Artists and professional photographers have been visiting the Everglades for generations to celebrate the beauty and grace of this magical environment. With awe-inspiring sights around every corner, taking brilliant photographs while journeying through the “River of Grass” is easy. A pristine, natural environment, capturing the beauty and elegance of the Everglades is easy in the morning when wildlife is most active and natural lighting is soft.
Take a Narrated Airboat Tour
To get the full Everglades experience, an airboat tour is the way to go. Narrated tours put you face-to-face with Everglades wildlife and exposes those “secret spots” that only a true gladesman would know. Everglades Holiday Park in Fort Lauderdale pairs airboat tours with live alligator presentations for even more fun. Take a 60-minute tour and return to the park for a thrilling gator show performed by the Gator Boys from Animal Plane. The world famous “Gator Pit” is where the action takes place, and families enjoy the interactive experience. Plus, the goal of the Gator Boys Alligator Rescue is to save as many nuisance alligators as possible, and the show is an exciting way to expose the kids to the larger concept of Everglades restoration and conservation.
